“Old-fashioned lollipops are a far cry from the hard little rounds machined onto a stick that Americans are accustomed to,” wrote a reporter from Oregon Live after visiting Lollipop Rooster’s charming downtown storefront. There, a second-generation candy maker molds imaginative confections using the same methods his father did in Ukraine beginning in the late 1970s. Out of glossy hard candies, he creates roosters, rabbits, squirrels, elephants, and a menagerie of holiday-themed figures, such as Santa Claus and the Fourth of July fairy. The intricately designed treats are also delicious, made in a variety of rich flavors. His shop ships confections to stores around the country and sells an assortment of imported chocolates and candies, as well.
