W.C. Fields famously said, “Never give a sucker an even break” and Dick Van Dyke as Caractacus Potts in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” sang, “Don’t waste your pucker on some all-day sucker.” That was a long time ago, though: back then, the world was so primitive that movies were black and white and children could sit through two-and-a-half-hour long movie musicals with Benny Hill in them.

Times have changed, and so have suckers. Companies like Fancy Lollies now hand-make artisan, boutique lollypops, confections so elegant and refined that it’s hard to believe they come on a stick and that you’re supposed to slobber all over them. Who can suppress salivation, though, when admiring lollies flavored like chai spice, Red Bull, and even absinthe? I’m Pav-lovin’ it!

Fancy Lollies’s piece de resistance is the Maple-Bacon lollypop. Made lovingly with premium bacon, real maple syrup, and genuine J&D Bacon Salt, this pop will be hard to top. Interestingly, Josh Fowler of Fancy Lollies explains that a rival company also offered a Maple-Bacon lolly until recently, but discontinued the brand due to a change of heart regarding industrial farming and agribusiness: they did a complete 180 and are now an entirely vegan company! That’s all well and good if you’re in the market for a wheat germ or cauliflower lollipop, but for the Maple-Bacon lolly, Fancy Lollies is your one-stop tip-top mom and lolly pop shop. These suckers deserve at least an even break.
