    Lollipop should be renamed “lousy pop”, “lame duck”, or “load of crap.”

    After jelly bean releasing there has been the release of kitkat , lollipop also
    So after lollipop I think it would be Marshmallow (Marshmellow)
    Nougat [Noodle (Nerds would be hilarious)]
    Oreo (or Oatmeal Cookie) Orange (Oreo would be better!)
    Peppermint (or Popsicle, but I’d prefer PayDay) (Pudding)
    Queen Cake [Quince (White men can’t jump / Jeopardy!)]
    Rocky Road (or Reese’s Pieces) [RockyRoad (uhoh, bad foreshadowing!)]
    Strawberry Shortcake (or Sorbet, or Somosa for a nod to India) (Sundae)
    Twinkee
    upside-down-cake
    Vanilla
    Waffle Cone (
    Xmas Cookies
