Saf-T-Pops were developed in the early 1940s by Carl W. Spohr of Chicago and Robert F. Bracke of Arlington Heights, Illinois.

Curtiss Candy Company acquired the rights to Saf-T-Pops in the late 1940s. Curtiss also created the Baby Ruth and Butterfinger candy bars.

The idea for Saf-T-Pops, safety lollipops for toddlers with a flexible fiber loop handle, was trademarked April 7, 1942. Spangler Candy Company bought the machinery and trade name in 1978 from Curtiss Candy Company in Chicago and began production in 1979.

Considerable adjustment was needed to make room for the Saf-T-Pop equipment at the Bryan plant. Work on space for eight new forming and wrapping lines and the related cooking equipment spilled over the summer shutdown and the first shipments weren't ready until September. But by late Fall, Saf-T-Pops had officially joined with Dum Dums, making a dynamic pair of the best known lollipops in the nation.
