About this item

- Four delicious flavor combinations including cherry Jolly Ranchers with grape filling
- Individually wrapped lollipops
Jolly Rancher® Filled Pops (.56 oz., 100 ct.) are an exciting new concept from the team who brought you Jolly Ranchers, the never-ending flavor hard candy. The iconic watermelon Jolly Rancher is the subject of myth, fairytale and folklore, and children around the world still go into a crazed fervor when the legendary watermelon smell hits their nostrils. The cherry Jolly Rancher inspires much of the same, though it also turns the entire body cherry-red unless consumed at least once per day. Jolly Ranchers have been known to create candy-worshipping zombies who will stop at nothing to get what they believe is their rightful possession, a Jolly Rancher candy.
Well, bad news for people afraid of candy zombies, but great news for zombies themselves and potentially zombie hunters as well: Jolly Rancher chews have been combined with Jolly Rancher hard candy to create Jolly Rancher Filled Pops.
What Are Jolly Rancher Filled Pops?
It's a hard candy shell, thick and satisfying for about 10 minutes, in a spherical lollipop shape surrounding a Jolly Rancher chewy center. This is not to be confused with Jolly Rancher gummies, which have a bouncier texture. The center of these pops is chewy like taffy, not buoyant like gummies.
What Are the Flavors of Jolly Rancher Filled Pops?
This pack contains four addictive flavor combinations: legendary watermelon hard shell and chewy sour green apple center, sweet grape shell and watermelon chew, sour green apple shell with inimitable cherry chew center and cherry hard shell with grape center.
When Were Jolly Ranchers Invented?
Jolly Ranchers were introduced over 65 years ago, in 1949 by Bill Harmsen. Mr. Harmsen sold ice cream at stores called Ranch Maid Ice Cream, but since his shop was in Denver, Colorado, he had a hard time selling ice cream in the frigid winter months. After all, who wants a cone of frozen liquid when frozen liquid is already surrounding you, landing on your hat and underneath your feet? His solution was to create a sweet hard candy with a friendly name, and Jolly Rancher was born.
