The ’90s brought us some great things like light-up sneakers, Tamagotchi’s, and Spice Girls. But more importantly, Chupa Chups started selling in 164 countries around the world. Chupa Chups currently sells more than 100 flavors worldwide! Have you tried them all? Probably not. And if you are a vegan or vegetarian, you might not want to try all the varieties either. Today`s question is: “Are Chupa Chups vegetarian?”
Where does the name Chupa Chups come from?
There was a jingle that translated something like, “Get something sweet to lick like a chup.” The phrase “chupa un chups” comes from Spanish (chupar = to suck). Everyone loved this one-shot so much that it gave the product its final name, “Chupa Chups.”

Originally made as a gift for FC Barcelona soccer player Hristo Stoichkov, this giant lollipop weighed an incredible 735 grams. It would take hours, maybe even days, to suck it. It’s still being produced today. Just in case you want to take up a challenge!
