The Origins and Rise of Blow Pops
Blow Pops, though not the first creation of the Charms Company, became their crowning jewel. Introduced in the early '70s as "Triple Threat," they were renamed Charms Blow Pops by 1973, marking over six decades since Charms' inception. With a limited product range, Charms still emerged as the world's foremost producer of hard candy and lollipops, primarily riding on the success of the Blow Pop.
The name "Blow Pop" etched its mark not just in candy history but also in popular culture. It inspired names for bands and found mention in tracks by iconic artists like Gucci Mane. Furthermore, their widespread popularity made them a staple for fundraising drives.

In 1988, a significant move reshaped the candy landscape—the Tootsie Roll Company acquired Charms Company. This merger brought together the legendary Blow Pop and the equally beloved Tootsie Pop. Together, they reinforced the Tootsie Roll Company's status as the leading lollipop producer worldwide.
For those who adore a blend of colors and flavors, the Whirly Pops offer a feast for the senses. But for many, amidst the vast candy universe, the nostalgic charm of the Blow Pop remains unparalleled.
