The Spaniard Enric Bernat got the idea of a candy on a stick from a mother as her child got sticky hands from melting sweets. Bernat thought that sweets were not designed for children and he invented Chupa Chups in 1958.
The name of this brand comes from the Spanish verb chupar that means to suck.
The Chupa Chups logo was designed by Salvador Dalí and many celebrities like Madonna, Mariah Carey, Giorgio Armani or Spice Girls made it popular.
