There’s something that as women, we’re very good at keeping secret. When people think about an (almost) all-female workplace, they probably assume we’re very ‘lady-like’. Eating cucumber sandwiches and sipping on herbal teas, while, of course, all having our period and not being able to find our workplace because we’re so bad with directions.
What most people don’t realise is the extent to which we love need to snack. The brain needs sugar, people. Who can seriously claim to watch The Bachelor or get through the struggle of Friday afternoon without goddamn lollies?
But, there’s an issue. We can’t always agree on the right lollies. And there’s nothing worse than preparing yourself for a sugar fix to find a sub-par treat sitting in front of you. So I thought I’d settle it once and for all – what’s Mamamia’s favourite Allen’s lolly?
There was tension. There were arguments. But ultimately, we have a clear winner.
Random. So random. But a number of staff indicated that teeth are their favourite lolly.
Their reasoning? Part novelty, part nostalgia and part taste.

4. Killer pythons.
Snakes are far too small. Here at Mamamia, we’re into the pythons.
According to one colleague, they double as a delicious treat and decorative neck piece.
Ah yes, of course they do.
