National Lollipop Day: A Holiday for Suckers
Whether you lick 'em, suck 'em or bite 'em, lollipops are tasty treats enjoyed by young and old alike. The actual candy that resembles today's "suckers" probably dates back to the Middle Ages. While the actual inventor is unknown, legend has it that George Smith invented the modern-day lollipop back in 1908. He named the sugary concoction after his horse, Lolly Pop.
