"Lollipop (Candyman)" is a song recorded by Danish dance-pop group Aqua. It was released as the fourth overall single from their debut album Aquarium, and as the follow-up to their most successful song "Barbie Girl" in Oceania, North America and several European nations. Although said to be one of the group's favorite songs, it failed to replicate the success of "Barbie Girl", "Doctor Jones" and "My Oh My" where it was released.

"Lollipop" featured a prominent role for René Dif, with vocals also from main vocalist Lene. The CD single was released in various forms, many containing only the short name of the track, and not the full name with the bracketised 'Candyman' at the end.

"Lollipop (Candyman)" was the group's second release in the United States, and became their second top forty hit and last song to chart there, peaking at No. 23. The US release featured "Good Morning Sunshine" as the second track on the CD single and cassette.

The character Candyman from Bountyland in the lyrics is later referenced in "Halloween", a song from Aqua's second album Aquarius.
