Black & White Swirl Pops
I got them for my black and white wedding. They are super cute but the wrapper has writing on them (co. Name and other info). I wish I would have known that and got the ones with the sticker so that I could have covered that with a sticker. They also came a little melted... but they will still work!

I purchased these as a table accent for my daughter's wedding -- they were the little extra that was needed. All attendees thought they were perfect and the children loved them.

Suckers were old and chewy
I bought these for my husbands birthday party theme that was black, white and gold. They looked good however they were old and chewy and I ended up throwing them all away. Wish they paid more attention to candy that may be left on the shelves too long when especially such as the candy I purchased (black swirl suckers) most likely don't get bought as much as other colors might and they went bad.

Great visual purchase
I used these lollipops as zebra pops for my wild animal themed party, with a leopard print ribbon tied to them. They were a cute addition to the goodie bags, but they did not taste like cherry, as the description stated. A faint vanilla flavor might be a better description-but the kids enjoyed them, and that's what's important!

We bought these for a party and the kids loved them. You really can't beat the price and they arrived in good condition.

Perfect if you aren't expecting them to be perfect
I purchased these as a thank you gift with purchase for my business. The pops appeared to be packed well but 3 were broken. They were also dark brown/dark purple, not black. They taste like plastic initially and then a subtle cherry flavor when chewed. They will work fine for what I needed them for but if you need a perfect black and white pop I wouldn't recommend this.

These did the trick¿¿¿visually.
I bought these lollipops to style a tabletop for an editorial photo shoot. They looked very much like I what I was expecting in terms of color and size. However, it should be noted that while I ordered all black and white pops, about 20% of the pops in the batch were actually dark brown. If you need a specific number of pops (of a specific color) for an event, please be aware of this, and order extra. An alternative would be for Oriental Trading Company to simply send all pops of the same color. The size is nice. About 2 inches in diameter and the quality and thickness of the pops is good. Please disregard the commenter who said that these were the size of Dum Dums. There is no truth to that assessment. Finally, I tried one of the leftover pops from the shoot last night, and I wanted to take a moment to comment on the flavor. They had a (very) subtle flavor of sugar¿¿¿no real flavor payoff that makes it worth the calories. The reviewers who said these tasted "fruity" must have been tasting an entirely different variety of pop. Please note that these should be purchased for decoration only; if you expect your guest to enjoy these as a treat after your event they may be disappointed. There is not much to them. But kids will love them. One final note: The colors did not bleed or stain even after licking, so that speaks to the product's high quality.

For goodie bags
I got these to go in the treat bags for my son's t-ball team... the black and white matches the team colors, so they are perfect. Not sure, how they taste, but they look great!

Black and white lollipops
I ordered the lollipops for my wedding. I was so disappointed when they arrived. They were to small. I expected them to be small but not that so small that I couldn't even do what I had I planned with them. I wanted to make lollipop arrangements. The sticks were to short and not really sure what I can do with them now. Also they would not take them back cause they are food. Just remember they are about the size of a dum-dum sucker.
