Great Product Ideas – Pops and Poppers
Who doesn’t love a classic lollipop? In Australia, we have a thing for Chupa Chups .. so much so that many Aussies think Chupa Chups are Australian! In fact, they were created by a Spanish man in 1958 and are now owned by a Dutch-Italian company. He originally called it ‘GOL’ referring to the mouth as a football net and the lollipop as a football (goal). It wasn’t catchy enough so he enlisted an advertising agency who came up with Chups. Did you know the iconic Chupa Chup logo was designed by Salvador Dali? Some of the slogans used over the years are :
“It’s round and long-lasting”
“Stop smoking, start sucking”
and in Australia in the 70′s: “What a sweet half hour”
and now : “Life Less Serious”
The chupa chup was inspired as a way to keep kids’ fingers from getting sticky when eating sweets.
The same thinking has borne some great new ‘pop’ style ideas lately, like:
