Lollis & Pops: Candy Heaven for the Nostalgic Soul

Like many children of the late ’70s, early ’80s (yes, I’m that old), growing up I had only one life-goal that needed to be accomplished. I was going to find a Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. I was positive that this was better than winning the lottery. My 7-year-old mind came up with all kinds of wild schemes to procure one of these life-altering scraps of paper. From eating my way through thousands of pounds of chocolate to bribing unwitting playmates to do my ticket-search bidding, I (quite, literally) drew up blueprints. But as every year passed without a sight of the sweet metallic shine, the dream was buried along with all other childhood fantasies in the sad graveyard with Santa Claus and Sasquatch. That is until I happened upon my first Lollis & Pops.

Manned by nostalgically dressed sugar fairies, the stores are stocked floor to ceiling with delightful treats. From champagne truffles to lavender bon-bons to exotic popcorn, the gourmet flavor options are endless. And best of all, the presentation is impeccable with all of the candies gorgeously boxed by hand to perfection. You will also never get tired of visiting this sweet haven, because the product is always changing. The treats are sourced from all over the world, both from famed and local artisans, and thus change daily depending on the candy’s batch size and availability.
