Vintage Treats: I did not know Chupa Chups lollies were Spanish
Old School Treats that are still being enjoyed today
Today at work, something hit me. Hard. On the foot. It was a can of Chupa Chups. Not the lollipops – it was a can of pop.
I had know idea Chupa Chups was available as a drink.
The very same Can.
After work, I had to find the lollipops. It was basically a sign, and I had a sudden deep craving.
While I only found them in Tiny, they instantly transported me back to two years ago sitting in Czechia and sucking on a a Chupa Chup.
One of the Lollies. Cola flavoured.
After some research on Wikipedia (Happy Birthday), I found out something that I had not anticipated. Chupa Chups come from Spain.
And the words actually have an underlying meaning. They were not just made up as I had previously thought.
The Spanish Verb 'Chupar' means to suck on something, just like you do with a lollipop.
The brand was founded back in 1958 out of a jam factory, but the idea to create them existed before then. The main investors of Granja Asturias, the jam factory, were not too fond of the idea, but obviously it's been a huge success, and Chupa Chups are still enjoyed today.
