Ring Pops History
Ring Pops are a popular candy that have been enjoyed by children and adults alike for many years. Here's a brief history of Ring Pops:
Ring Pops were introduced to the market in 1979 by the Topps Company, a well-known American producer of trading cards and confectionery. The Topps Company was founded in 1938 and had already gained recognition for its sports trading cards and Bazooka bubble gum.
The inspiration behind Ring Pops came from a desire to create a fun and wearable candy that could be enjoyed on the go. The design of a plastic ring with a large, colorful candy gem on top was a unique and innovative concept at the time. The ring part of the candy was made from a hard plastic material, and the gem was made of a fruit-flavored, hard candy.
Ring Pops quickly gained popularity among children and became a sought-after candy item. The combination of a sweet treat and an accessory made them particularly appealing to young consumers. They were often seen as a fun fashion accessory, and wearing a Ring Pop became a trendy and playful way to enjoy a candy.
Over the years, Ring Pops have undergone various updates and changes in their appearance. Different flavors and colors have been introduced to cater to different tastes and preferences. Some versions even featured special editions tied to popular characters or franchises.
Today, Ring Pops continue to be produced and enjoyed by candy enthusiasts around the world. They are available in a wide range of flavors, including traditional fruit flavors like strawberry, cherry, and blue raspberry, as well as more unique options. Ring Pops are often found in convenience stores, candy shops, and supermarkets, and they remain a beloved treat for both children and adults.
The enduring popularity of Ring Pops can be attributed to their fun and interactive nature, making them a classic candy that has stood the test of time.
Ring Pops Memories
When I was about seven years old, I still was on the pacifier. I just wouldn’t give it up! Everyone tried to get me off of it, but it was impossible. Being a big second grader, I felt some embarrassment. However, there was no way I was going to give it up!
One day, my mom went to the store. She brought home a big bag of something. I was curious. When she wasn’t looking, I took a little peak in the bag. Inside were about twenty. Ring Pops. The next day, I couldn’t find my pacifier. I started to scream! Then I thought of something. Those Ring Pops looked just like a pacifier! So, whenever I had the urge to stick my pacifier in my mouth, I would have a Ring Pop. Eventually, I ate them all. But by that time, I didn’t have any more urges.
Later I learned that this was all my mom’s evil idea. Whenever I see Ring Pops in a store, I’m always tempted to get one and relive those days. ~ Lisa from Wisconsin
I got married with a ring pop ring in august of 2000. This was because my wife and I liked them so much. I used a ring pop when I proposed to her, and when she said yes I gave her the real ring later that night. As we talked over the wedding we decided that we would use ring pops at the wedding because we went through a half of a box on our very first date! We of course got real rings for our wedding rings, but we used the ring pops as a prop. Ring pops have great meaning in our marriage. We ate them on the first date, used them for our wedding, and of course, we have one together every year on our anniversary. ~David from Texas
