What Does a Million Dollar Lollipop Look Like?
It’s National Lollipop Day (July 20), so there’s no better time to share a little-known “attraction” on the Strip: The million dollar lollipop at Sugar Factory inside Paris Las Vegas.
The glittery, million dollar pop was unveiled at Sugar Factory’s grand opening at Paris Vegas by socialite and TV personality Kim Kardashian on Mar. 4, 2011.
It’s a Perfect Princess Cut-designed necklace, covered with 125 carats of flawless, white diamonds and 200 grams of 18-carat white gold. Note: Grams are like ounces, but more “foreigny.”
The one-of-a-kind “Couture Pop” (the name for a pop and its fashionable case) is available for purchase for a cool million bucks. Oh, come on, you have that on you, right?
The Million Dollar Couture Pop is on display every day of the week in a guarded, glass case, and was crafted by a team of experts including: Joshua Pianko, Ido Izkovich from The Perfect Princess Cut Diamonds company and Mario Leiva.
Of course, Sugar Factory has myriad other lollipop options for significantly less than a million clams. Our favorite is the Vegas Couture Pop. What else?
Another reason to love Sugar Factory pops? They’re assembled by a local nonprofit, Opportunity Village. Read more about this amazing partnership.
For the record, there’s also a Sugar Factory location inside The Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, right across from the popular Earl of Sandwich restaurant.
On the off chance a million dollar pop isn’t up your alley, we reluctantly offer up a novelty item this Las Vegas blog deeply resents: Sin City sucker pops. See below.
If you must, read more about these tasty Vegas collectibles available in just about every souvenir shop on the Strip.
Whether you call them lollipops, pops, lollies, suckers or dum-dums, we hope you have a great National Lollipop Day! Because in Vegas, we’re big fans of lickers. See what we did there?
