Do you know why there is a hole at the top of a lollipop stick? You might be thinking that when the kid finishes his/her lollipop, it could be turned into a whistle. But that’s not the reason. The reason is when the manufacturers pour the hot candy into the mold, then some of it flows into the hole and hardens. This allows the candy to get fixed on the stick and not to fall.
