A Lolly Adventure
In the old Dayboro Butter Factory, there are a few fascinating shops and one is the Dayboro Lolly Lovers Shop, which offers a wonderful range of sweets for those looking for a sugar fix. Many of the lolly varieties have been on the market for many years, including Musk Sticks and boiled lollies, sherberts, Fantales, Minties, and Jaffas to name just a few.
Many people born back in the 1940's and 50's would remember many of them when they walk into the Lolly Shop – and perhaps recall that one might have a penny or two to spend on lollies on the way home from school.
Did you know that there is a recorded history of Australian lollies? Social Historian Toni Risson earned the Australia's first PhD in lollies a couple of years back. You can see her interviewed on the ABC here, and read another article about her study here.
Of course children love visiting the lolly shop, and many have difficulty choosing what they want.
