Find the Perfect Unique and/or Allergy Friendly Lollipop
The Lollipop Fairy, A Sweet Birthday Tradition children's book was written to share this simple sweet birthday tradition with others around the world. Often times, adults think there is a one specific way "The Lollipop Fairy" delivers her seeds or there has to be one specific lollipop that grows but that is not the case. Questions I’m often asked are, “Do Lollipop Seeds come with the book?”, “What types of lollipops grow from the magical lollipop seeds?", and "Where can I find allergy friend and/or all natural organic lollipops?” Hopefully, this article will help answer those questions and more!
Do Lollipop Seeds come with the book, The Lollipop Fairy, A Sweet Birthday Tradition?
The short answer is no. However, there is a very important reason why The Lollipop Fairy, A Sweet Birthday Tradition does not come with “magical lollipop seeds”. The beauty in the tradition is the simplicity and flexibility and having no rule on what constitutes a “lollipop seed” is part of that. The birthday child never really knows what the seeds will look like until they “magically” arrive. This is very helpful for those years when the “The Lollipop Fairy” is short on time and creativity.
What types of lollipops grow from the magical lollipop seeds?Where can I find allergy friend and/or all natural organic lollipops?
Each year, the lollipops can all match, be a variety of lollipop types, be a fake lollipop (with gift cards or gift placed close by for those with severe food allergies), or anything else “The Lollipop Fairy” chooses that year. Once again, this is another reason why this annual birthday tradition is so accessible and flexible. The tradition can be as simple or as elaborate as “The Lollipop Fairy” decides that year. Sometimes there’s just not enough time or resources to go all out but the magic in the experience is always there, and that’s all the birthday child truly cares about.
Fortunately, we live in a time where there are a variety of lollipops available to purchase. Candy manufacturers have come to the table and understand there are different dietary restrictions that sometimes require candy to be all natural, sugar-free, gluten-free, dye-free and/or more.
We all know where to find a standard lollipop but if you are looking for some unique options or restricted dietary needs options, please use this list below for reference. I can’t guarantee the dietary claims made by these manufacturers and recommend thoroughly researching the product before purchasing but all of these recommendations came directly from parents looking for alternatives. Please share your unique lollipop manufacturer recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org. . I’m always looking for new ideas to share with “The Lollipop Fairy”.
Have fun, and please tag me at @Lollipop_Fairy_Birthday with your your beautiful birthday memories!
