From Egyptians eating honey on sticks to today’s modern-day confections, this subject of this episode is kicking off a series that will hopefully lead us into Halloween with a sweet twist.
Just to warn you, there are some ear worms in this episode, so take my advice and if you happen to get a song stuck in your head, as I have since researching it, sing a Queen song. That always helps me.
I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Lollipops.
