If you've tried to get your kids interested in history, but can't get them excited about it, then surely you haven't tried these historical lollipops called Head Pops.
I think they rock, as they look pretty great and are a lot more effective than some of the uber-crappy "shaped" lollipops where you can't even guess if the item it was based on is an animal, mineral or vegetable. In a strange way, I feel the flavours match the characters too. Sadly, they only come in boxes of 24, which means you will have a lot of the bad boys to eat.
Marie Antoinette tastes of cherry, Freud of Water Mellon and Lincoln of Orange.
