How quickly do you travel that path back to childhood when you see these big, colorful lollipops?! They are amazing. Made by Hammond's Candies, where they still make all of their candy by hand. Beautiful creations, with vibrant colors and perfect swirls. Fantastic by themselves, and fabulous when paired with a gift. A reminder with every taste of simpler, carefree times when happiness was created just by the simple purchase of a larger than life lollipop!
If you are like me, you probably hesitate over buying these lollipops when you see them and the kids beg for them. You just know they won't finish it, it will become a sticky mess, and the interest is gone long before the second layer is! Someone shared a tip with me, though, that has changed all that. We now buy these without a second thought, knowing we will get every last lick out of them! Once the girls have their fun of trying to lick through these ginormous pops, we tie them up in a plastic bag, and bang them on a hard surface, breaking up the lollipop. You then have a bag of small pieces of candy that you can keep in your purse and dole out as needed. Just remember which bag belongs to which child!! Seriously, though, this makes life with lollipops so easy. As an added bonus, it becomes a treat that now lasts all day!
