Unwrapped Dum Dums

Dum Dums are sphere-shaped lollipops named by I. C. Bahr, a sales manager at the Akron Candy Company in Bellevue, Ohio, in 1924.[1] In 1953, the Dum Dum Pop was purchased by the Spangler Candy Company[2] and moved manufacturing to Bryan, Ohio.[citation needed]

Flavors[edit]

Dum Dums are made in sixteen flavors with new flavors rotating into the mix every so often.[3] The Mystery Flavor continuously changes and according to Spangler Candy Company, the mystery flavor is not limited to the current Dum Dums flavor mix. The flavor is created when production switches from one flavor to another. Instead of cleaning out the machinery, two different flavors are merged, meaning a mystery flavor can be a different combination every time.[4]
