The original Charms Blow Pop is a lollipop with a hard candy exterior that you can suck on before reaching the chewy bubble-gum center to blow as you please. It’s the best of candy and gum together. You get to enjoy a sweet and fun lollipop and when you lick to the center – or chew if you are in a rush – you get to a piece of bubble gum. So it’s basically two things all kids love together in one candy-gum combo!
And there is also a Super Blow Pop that is even a larger and more fun version of the Charms Blow Pop.
With a plethora of flavors available, you can try these super blow candies in various colors and tastes. Whether you are a fan of sweet-n-sour or a diehard watermelon flavor fan, you can choose your choice of flavor within the variety available with super blow pop candy and bubble gum.
This candy is a Halloween staple and is a popular treat for children and adults all year round. Even if you have fallen out of love with Blow Pop’s original flavors, Charms’ ingenious and mouth-watering new creations will keep you intrigued and hooked on the delicious combination of bubble gum and candy.
History of Super Blow Pop
Blow Pops were invented by Thomas Tate Tidwell and were later adopted by the famous candy brand The Charms Candy Company in Bloomfield, New Jersey. After the launch with The Charms Candy Company, Blow Pops became sensational among the masses and became the company’s best-selling product of the time.
After Tootsie Roll Industries bought The Charms Candy Company in 1988, they added Blow Pops to their product line and became the world’s largest manufacturer of lollipops in the world.
Blow Pop was originally called Tropical Charms as they were packed in a single packaging as square-shaped candies. These candies were one of the first wrapped individually in cellophane wrapping.
The popularity of hard-shell candies, earlier iterations of Blow Pop, began in World War II when the U.S. Army included Charms’ candies in soldiers’ rations. The soldiers enjoyed them as a supplemental form of energy during their war efforts. Since World War II, the tradition of including these Charm candies, including Super Blow Pops, has continued. Although the original Blow Pops were much different, the idea of a bubble-gum inside a hard candy shell is what attracted most to try these out.
The patent for “Method for making candy with gum inside” was filed by Thomas T. Tidwell in 1966, and after the patent was issued in 1969, Triple T began marketing the product as the Triple Treat. In 1973, the idea for the candy was sold to Charms, who marketed the product as Blow Pops. They are available in primary flavors like watermelon, cherry, grape, strawberry, and sour apple.
Blow Pop Flavors
Every Blow Pop’s retro wrapping carries one of thirteen sweet and sour lollipop flavors. If you are a fan of classic flavors like Watermelon, Cherry, Strawberry, Grape, you can choose your favorite flavor of candy and bubble-gum duo, which are available commonly. However, if you want to try something experimental and out-of-the-box, they are also available in unique and eccentric flavors like Candy Corn, Caramel Apple, and Sour Apple.
For Blow Pop’s contemporary flavor range fans, the company has made flavors like Cherry Limeade, Grape Pineapple, Banana Apple, Peach Watermelon, and Strawberry Strawberry-Lemonade also available in the larger version of Super Blow Pop.
