Sugar Daddy Candy Pops
Sugar daddy candy is an old time retro candy from the 50's. Sugar daddy suckers are available in giant or mini size both with the same great tasting caramel. The original giant pop first came out in 1925, delicious caramel on a stick for long lasting fun.
We carry many choices for you to choose from. A single sucker, a 12 pack party bag, a 48 count box of mini's or a 24 count box or a giant 1 pound sucker. Sugar daddy's are also found in many of our retro and nostalgic gift baskets.
Throughout the years different companies have purchased and manufactured these pops, however they are still manufactured using the original recipe and are still as delicious today as they were many years ago.
The sugar daddy line was first manufactured by James O. Welch Co. in 1925, at that time it was called "Papa Sucker", Later the name was changed to Sugar Daddy to suggest a wealth of sweetness. In the 70's Warner-Lambert Company purchased the company which they later sold to Tootsie Roll in 1988.
Sugar Daddy Memories|
My favorite candy memory took place when I was 7 years old. I was with my mom at the store. We were very poor, but my mom said if she could, she would give me a nickle for candy. In my heart, I knew there wouldn't be enough, but I still looked longingly at all the candy. Sugar daddies, chum gum, and bullseyes, were all favorites of mine. I saw A lady in line paying for her purchases. When she took her money out, a bill fell to the floor. I looked around and realized I was the only one who had seen the money fall. When the lady walked away, I quickly picked it up. It was a five dollar bill. Boy, did my eyes get big! I could buy a lot of candy with that. Finders keepers, losers weepers. If only I hadn't seen who lost it! I did, and I knew I had to find her and give it back. I saw her by the exit and ran over to her. I told her she had dropped her money and I found it. After I gave it to her, I turned to go. She told me to wait. She handed me a dollar and told me to go and buy myself something as a reward for returning her money. WoW! I couldn't believe it! I had a whole dollar for my favorite candies. I am 66 years old today and I still believe that "honesty is the best policy".
