Where does 🍭 Lollipop emoji come from?


The classic lollipop is often a simple and straightforward way to imply sweetness, whether on the taste buds or in mood or tone. For people involved in making candy or baking desserts, the lollipop emoji fits the bill because it’s instantly recognizable, it’s colorful and eye catching, and it conveys childhood and nostalgia, memories and “sweetness” of all kinds.

Another word for a lollipop is a sucker due to the way we enjoy the sugary treat. It may not be a surprise to know that the emoji is also sometimes used to convey a sexual message, perhaps evoking oral sex or other innuendos.

The lollipop emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.

Who uses 🍭 Lollipop emoji?

The lollipop emoji is used by those with a sweet tooth, filling various social-media feeds with mouth watering pictures of desserts and candy of all kind.

It’s also used to convey the idea of something that is good and positive, or exciting and excellent.

It definitely leads a double life though. In a sexy, flirtatious post, it can imply an interest in oral sex. It can sometimes imply a child-like naivety combined with an overt sexuality. It may be used with other emoji that are representational of sexual messaging—like the eggplant, cucumber, bagel, or doughnut.
