Will you marry me?

Did anyone else propose/get proposed to using a Ring Pop?   I sure did!  This delicious candy ring introduced in 1977 and manufactured by Topps changed my childhood!



To paint the picture, this takes place way back in kindergarten.  I spilt glue on some dumb broad and she pulled me into the closet.  She said to me that if I don't marry her then she would tell on me.  What a bitch! But I obliged.  And there was no other way to do it then bust out the ring pop.  Needless to say I switched schools that year and I never saw her again.  Wife (I think Jessica from Dame School), if your reading this, I miss you dearly.  Love, Husband.

But back to the pop.  It seems like as of late these candy rings are back on the rise.  Nick Cannon renewed his vows to Mariah Carey using one.  Fergie even sports on in her "Fergalicious" videos!  (check ~1:42 on her left hand)



This candy had a little downtime in the late 90s and early 2000s but its back and as tasty as ever!
