When did the first lollipops appear?

The first lollipops appeared a very long time ago. Historians believe that the first analogues of lollipops were still among the ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Arabs. To get nut and fruit sweets, they dipped candied fruits in honey. It served as a natural preservative. After that, the delicacy was planted on small sticks. Such sweets do not get your hands dirty. In Europe, lollipops appeared in the 17th century. At first they were actively used by doctors. Sticks were also inserted into healing lollipops for convenience. The English word for the treat is lollipop, meaning "sweet tongue". Americans claim that lollipops were invented in the US during the Civil War. Hard candies were put on ordinary pencils and given to children. For many years, lollipops were considered a kind of tasty souvenir. Mass production of lollipops began only in the 20th century. The real revolution was the invention of caramels. The first serial production of "caramel sticks" occurred in 1908. George Smith, the owner of the famous Bradley Smith confectionery, is considered the author of modern lollipops. In 1931 he successfully registered the trademark "Lollipop»


When did the doypack first appear and who invented it?

Doypack (Fr. Doypack) or pouch (English pouch) is a special type of flexible sealed packaging, which is a plastic bag with a bottom, which allows the package to stand upright when filled. The principal feature of the doypack is a multi-seam (from 1 to 5) construction with a flexible bottom. This type of packaging got its name from the name of the creator Louis Doyen (fr. Louis Doyen) from the abbreviated DOYen PACKaging (“Doypack”) The design was invented in 1963 by Louis Doyen (fr. Louis Doyen), the head of the French company Thimonnier, which owns the rights to the Doypack trademark. In those years, European manufacturers were unable to appreciate the innovation, so the doypack, as a brand, remained assigned to the Thimonnier company, but it did not renew the patent for the manufacture of packaging that was not quite familiar at that time. Thus, the doypack manufacturing technology has become publicly available. Japanese packaging manufacturers have developed and improved doy-pack technology. In addition to purely polymer doypacks, the production of foil doypacks with combined layers began, which had a positive effect on the strength of new doypacks and product shelf life. Doypacks soon became popular, first in Japan and shortly thereafter around the world.
