The not so jolly Jolly Rancher lollipops

The Jolly Rancher lollipop is just the average lollipop.

Jolly rancher lollipops come in four different flavors: green apple, watermelon, cherry and pink lemonade.

On a chilly day in late October a hand dumps a fist full of candy into a pumpkin bowl – one sticks out with its bright red and flashing orange striped packaging.

The  Jolly Rancher lollipop was introduced in 1999 by Jolly Rancher. Customers are greeted with a bright colored packaging and framing orange stripes on the wrapper. The back of the wrapper details the allergy information and warns of the stick becoming a potential choking hazard. The wrapper is made of a strong material to provide a better grip when pulling the lollipop out.

The lollipops come in 4 flavors: green apple, watermelon, cherry and pink lemonade. On average, one lollipop is priced at 25 to 50 cents which is fair for a lollipop.

The Jolly Rancher lollipop is really just an average lollipop. When tasting the lollipop, there are hints of artificial flavoring along with a bit of sourness. The consistency of the candy is poor. After eating the lollipop for a while, the taste begins to fade and it becomes chewy, not hard.
