Another mainstay of the Penny Sweets selection were the vast array of different types of lollipops that were available to add to your little white paper bag. Lollies tended to be around the 3p price point, so you normally only chose one. we present here some of the options available, though I think all of these are still available today.
Standard boiled sweet lollies. The most simple and common place of lollies were the boiled sweet ones. A large globule of hard candy on the end of the stick, that you had no option but to lick and suck until it became small enough that you could place it between your back teeth and crunch it up. Not particularly good for the teeth, but nice to eat.
Bubble Gum lollies. These consisted of a dollop of chewing gum containing in a boiled sweet outer shell. You sucked the shell for a time until it became thin in enough to crack with your teeth, which then allowed you access to the chewing gum beneath. You would pull this off the stick to eat, but since there were still bits of boiled sweet in it for a while it was quite a crunchy experience.
