Ring Pop is a brand of fruit flavored lollipops manufactured by Topps. They are in the form of a wearable plastic ring with a large hard candy "jewel" and come in an assortment of flavors. They were invented by Frank Richards in 1979.
Frank Richards, who was a Product Engineer for Topps in Duryea, Pennsylvania wanted to help curtail his daughter's habit of thumb sucking. He designed Ring Pops when he saw a market for providing an alternative.
Special Ring Pops are made for some holidays. Easter Ring Pops use the traditional plastic ring but replace the gem-shaped hard candy with chicks or bunnies.
