Chupa Chups is a Spanish confectionery company which was started in 1957. Enric Bernat had the idea of caramel on a stick because many children ate a lot of caramels and this caused their hands to get dirty. The company had much success.
Chupa Chups began with seven flavours. This number has grown since then.
