2) Sugar Daddy Pops & BB Bats

Sugar Daddy is a candy bar on a stick, which is basically a block of moderately hard caramel. It was invented in 1925 by James O. Welch and originally called the Papa Sucker. The name was changed to Sugar Daddy in 1932. Sugar Babies were introduced three years later in 1935. A chocolate-covered version, the Sugar Mama was produced from 1965 to the 1980s. Welch eventually sold the company to Nabisco in 1963 and eventually sold to the Tootsie Roll company in the 1990’s, who still produce the Sugar Daddy candy pops. Sugar Daddy’s have been a staple of candy stores and ice cream trucks for almost a century and will continue to satisfy sugar aficionados for a long time to come.
