Chocolate, Sour Apple, and Bubble Gum Dum Dum Pops

A Dum Dum Pop (or Dum Dum) is a sphere-shaped lollipop named by I.C. Bahr, a Sales Manager at the Akron Candy Company in Bellevue, Ohio, in 1924.[1] In 1953 the Dum Dum Pop was purchased by the Spangler Candy Company and moved manufacturing to Bryan, Ohio.[citation needed]

The founder of Dum Dums was John Phillips.[citation needed]

Dum Dums are made from sugar and corn syrup that is cooked before coloring and flavoring are added. After pressing, the stick is then added.

Flavors

Dum Dums are made in sixteen flavors with new flavors rotating into the mix each year.[citation needed] The "Mystery Flavor" pops are any random combination of two flavors into one lollipop during batch manufacturing change-overs. It continuously changes and according to Spangler Candy Company, the mystery flavor is not limited to the current Dum Dums flavor mix. In 2010, a contest was held to name the new flavor blueberry and a girl named Savannah from Lansing, MI won. The flavor is now Savannah Blueberry.[2]
