Lollipop Fundraising for Schools
It can be hard to pick a product for your school, and even harder when there are so many flavors within that one product. Lollipop fundraisers are one of the most popular options for schools. They offer a vast selection of flavors for every age group and occasion.
More About Lollipops
Out of the $483 million in hard candy sales each year, the top two lollipop companies claim $55 million alone. It’s clear that they’re popular, and will not likely go away, but where exactly did they come from to begin with?
References of our beloved candy-on-a-stick can be traced back to ancient Egypt. People candied nuts and dried fruits with honey on sticks. The English then stirred rods into boiled down sugar. This created a closer version to the modern lollipop. The first ones that made their way into the American market are rumored to have been soft candy.
And speaking of rumors, nobody seems to know where the name “lollipop” originated. Some say it was in the streets of London because of the direct translation to the phrase “tongue slap.” Others say it was named after the famed American racehorse, “Lolly Pop”.
Now lollipops are everywhere—from banks to hospitals, and school fundraisers. We can all agree that the most exciting part of visiting the bank with your parents as a child was the lollipop.
Sometimes, they’re even used to deliver medicine to kids. Walk down the vitamin aisle and you'll notice the lollipops. They've even breached the world of health and nutrition. The most popular vitamin brands now sell lollipops loaded with daily multivitamins.
Why Choose a Lollipop Fundraiser
Over time, lollipops have become quintessential to the American childhood. Whether it was during summer camp or after school clubs, they were everywhere - and for good reason. With lots of flavors, shapes, sizes, and colors, they're great for any special event or holiday.
Lollipops work well because of the excitement and nostalgia built around them. And while they may be most enticing to a younger market, their appeal knows no age limit.
Lollipop Fundraiser Options
