Lollipop Hidden Message

Did a brief search online, didn't find anything like this
  [vote for,

Most lollipop sticks are made of tightly-rolled paper, which, with a little finesse and patience, can be unrolled into a sheet of paper and rolled right back up. So it occurred to me that if one could remove the stick from a still-intact lollipop, one could write covert messages on the inner surface of the stick paper, roll it back up into stick form, and re-insert it into the lollipop. Ought to pass through just about any form of security checks.

Potential uses and users are left to the imagination of my readers.

...whatever a tootsie pop is. Though I'm guessing this message is not secret. [DrCurry, Dec 26 2012]


       Nice idea (in the link). Not as easy to DIY, however.

       yes, it's one of those whose annotations disappeared over the years, along with the heroes that made them :)

       We shall never forget the Halfbakery heroes who laid down their lines on the page that our bellies may rumble with laughter.

       Great idea, I think. Merry Christmas 21. May you have 21 more...!

       I grew up with lollipops that had secret messages on the lollipop stick. Though you appear to be talking about candy lollipops, not ice ones.
DrCurry, Dec 26 2012

       Oh yes, I remember those. I'm talking about tootsie pops and similar candies.

       but the land of chocolate can be extrapolated to prediculations about internet futures about a land of free ideas that would never be commodified, and that commodification is not halfbaked, because it is completeness of idea, with security check points.
