Push Pop (manufactured by Topps) is an American brand of fruit-flavored lollipops produced in Taiwan (and other Southeast Asian countries). It is a product of the Topps Company Inc. It debuted in 1986 and comes in many flavors.[1][2][3]

Overview[edit]

The product's gimmick is that the lollipop takes the form of a long cylinder that retracts into a capped plastic tube, and must be "pushed" out for consumption. Push Pop varieties include Original, spring-loaded Jumbo, Triple Power, Flip-N-Dip, push pop sliderz, and Push Pump Spray.[4]

In 2020, the Push Pop Gummy Roll was added to the line of Push Pop candies.[5] The gummy roll comes in a tape-like dispenser that allows the consumer to pull out a strand of the roll and tear it off to get their desired piece of sanded gummy candy.[6] This new Push pop candy comes in 4 different flavors: Strawberry, Watermelon, Blue Raspberry, and Berry Blast. Creating gummy candy was a bit of a departure for Push Pop, as the brand focuses on creating a fun experience for eating lollipops.[7][8] The Push Pop Gummy Roll was first announced in May 2019 at the Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago.[9]

It has proven to be a popular product with kids, winning the Candy Industry Kid’s Choice award for Best Novelty candy.[10]
