Lindas Lollies Gourmet Lollipops were born by accident literally. In 1984, Linda Harkavy, the future founder of Lindas Lollies, was driving along the back roads of South Carolina when she had a terrible accident and sustained serious injuries. But fortune came out of misfortune: In need of a job that she could manage during her recovery, Linda happened upon a woman who ran a stovetop lollipops business out of her own kitchen. As Linda recalls, She was ready to retire and I was looking for a business I could manage on my own schedule. And so Linda set to work on an idea that was a lollipop revolution: 50 different exotic and delectable flavors, many of them never before seen in a lollipop. And thus the very first gourmet lollipops were born.
Lindas Today People loved Lindas Lollies and her little company grew. And after 30 years of building and sustaining a business through grit, tenacity and creativity, Linda was ready to retire. Yolo Candy, a company founded by three industry executives and long time fans of Lindas products, purchased Lindas Lollies in 2012. In the spirit of Lindas commitment to excellence and innovation, Yolos goal was to re-establish Lindas Lollies as the pre-eminent lollipop brand in the world.
