Chupa Chups is a Spanish confectionery company which was started in 1957. Enric Bernat had the idea of caramel on a stick because many children ate a lot of caramels and this caused their hands to get dirty. The company had much success.
Chupa Chups began with seven flavours. This number has grown since then.
In July 2006, the company as a whole was acquired by the Italian group Perfetti Van Melle.
