    The name lollipop was first coined by George Smith, owner of a confectionery business called the Bradley Smith Company. George Smith named the stick candy after his favorite race horse Lolly Pop.

    Its a little known fact that the lollipop was actually trademarked by Colonel Sanders’s first wife Josephine. Turns out that as the Colonel was perfecting his original recipe, Josephine was nurturing her sweet tooth. Her eureka moment came when she almost choked on a homemade candy lozenge after hitting a bump on her bicycle – a high wheel bicycle in the Columbia style of course. She realized that if she formed her tasty hard candies around the quill of a bird feather, it would never slip back into her windpipe again. Further, if it did she would simply have to pull on the feather tip to replace the candy into the proper position. Josephine named the treat after the noise she made while choking…a warbling wheezing “lolllliiii” followed by a loud “POP” as the candy was dislodged. History revealed.
