As children, we all loved these colorful, sweet lollipops – with so many flavors to offer, who wouldn’t want one? But probably the most exciting part was to get to the end of it and use the stick to whistle. Although we had our fun with them, the hole at the bottom of the stick is not there for the purpose of our enjoyment.
In fact, it is there for safety purposes. The hole is there to prevent people from choking, as it makes it very hard for the hard candy to come off. Sorry to burst your whistle-filled bubble! Keeping it as a whistle is still a legit use for the stick, though.
