me Chupa Chups revolutionized lollipops back in the 1990s. They
weren't the first people to give lollipops crazy flavours, but
they were the first big company to experiment with lollipop
flavours, and make uncommon flavours the norm. Most importantly
for me, they experimented with non-fruit flavoured lollipops.
It's easy to experiment with flavours, the real trick is to
make those flavours work as well. Chupa Chups did this, and
allowed you to sample something unique without having to buy
an expensive hand made lollipop.
So that happened
a long time ago, what can I say about Chupa Chups today. As
a flavour and quality go, my opinion hasn't really changed that
much at all. This chocolate vanilla flavoured lollipop was the
first flavour of Chupa Chups that really blew me away back then.
Today it's not as shocking a flavour, since more companies are
around doing similar things, however it still holds up in quality
of flavour. I guess you could look at it two ways, you could
say that Chupa Chups is just sticking with what works, or you
could say that they're lacking innovation. I'd say as a company
I think Chupa Chups is falling behind a little, but as far as
this flavour goes, I'm glad they haven't changed it.
This lollipop might
not blow away kids today. Many might think that it's just a
chocolate and vanilla lollipop, no big deal. However for older
folks this lollipop brings back memories, and the memories are
still there, and so is the flavour I loved.
