Chupa Chups is a Spanish confectionery company. In 1957, Enric Bernat had the idea of caramel on a stick because the children ate a lot of caramels and this caused their hands to get dirty. The company had much success. Chupa Chups was sold outside of Spain in the 1970s. It now does business in over 150 countries. These include Russia, Japan, Germany, Mexico, Australia and the United States.
Chupa Chups began with seven flavours. This number has grown since then.
