Carrying a Big Stick

Subtitle: 
Ferrari Color comes to the rescue when the 'World's Largest Lollipop' needs the world's largest wrapper.

From Popsicles to shish kababs, it seems there’s no denying that food tastes better on a stick. But perhaps no other fare rivals the delicious yet simple treat that is the lollipop. For the last 80 years, See’s Candies, which originated in Los Angeles and now sells its famous homemade chocolates in more than 200 stores around the world, has been cooking up gourmet lollipops in flavors like chocolate, vanilla, café latte, and more. So popular are the classic treats that See’s sells more than a million pounds of its gourmet lollipops every year.
