We've all gone wonka like Willy for some candy every now and then!
And even though we celebrate holidays like Halloween with a bunch of candy in a pumpkin and Valentine's Day with chocolate morsels, there's a whole day dedicated to one of the most savored confectioneries.
The month of July may have marked Independence Day, but did you know it also marked National Lollipop Day? Probably not.
Why not have a day where you're a "sucker" for that hardened, flavored sucrose with corn syrup mounted on a stick? The lollipop!
Because it brings us back to a simpler time for those of us who loved being a kid with a cavity, or two or three.
In honor of National Lollipop Day, See's Candie's created the "World's Largest Lollipop," which stands:
"5 feet and 11 inches tall, 3 feet and 6 inches wide, and weighs about 7,0003 pounds."
That's tantamount to a car. Matter fact three cars, according to See's Candies. So it goes without saying, the lollipop made the Guinness Book.
But what makes this behemoth of a lollipop even better is that it's chocolate-flavored! That's like two for the taste of one.
And since GlobalGrind has candy on the mind after hearing about the world's largest lollipop, we decided to compile a list of 10 delicious songs about lollipops and candy.
Check out the list below ranging from Shirley Temples' "On The Good Ship Lollipop" to Lil Wayne's "Lollipop," and let us know what you think!
Or better yet, if you have a sweet tooth!
