A lollipop, or lolly, is a type of confectionery consisting mainly of hardened, flavoured sugar mounted on a stick and intended for sucking or licking. They were first commercially manufactured on a large scale in the 1920s. Some lollipops contain fillings, such as bubble gum (Blow Pops) or Tootsie Pops. Notable brand names include Chupa Chups.
The term "lollipop" was first recorded in England in 1769 (Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, 1973), denoting a sweetmeat consisting chiefly of sugar or treacle. The first element is perhaps related to "loll", meaning "to dangle" (the tongue) — "lolly" was also a northern dialect word for the tongue, although this may in fact be derived onomatopoeically from the mouth sounds associated with sucking and licking.
