Many Sugar Daddies are from the “Baby Boomers” generation, so here’s an idea for a sweet gift from a caring Sugar Baby that will make him smile, and its also something you can both suck on!
Sugar Daddy is a classic old-time candy that will strike a chord with your baby-boomer Sugar Daddy, invented by Robert Welch in 1925 and originally called the “Papa Sucker.”
When the term Sugar Daddy became widely popular, the candy followed the trend and underwent a name change in 1932. The marketing strategy was to suggest a wealth of sweetness, something all you Sugar Babies can boast of!
Manufacturers also introduced the Sugar Baby in 1935, followed by a chocolate-covered version – Sugar Mamas in 1965. Sugar Baby is still available but the Sugar Mamas were discontinued in the 1980s.
Suagr Daddies were famously the sponsor of the “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match in 1973 between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs.
