Chupa Chups Birthday Party

Gotta love Chupa Chups. They are an internationally renowned symbol of lollipops. Two things that always bothered me though:

Why is it pronounced Chuh-pah-chuh-ps here and Chew-pah-chew-ps elsewhere in the world? Wikipedia offers me no explanation.

Also, who is this rogue Chupa Chups seller I see in the city? Why not sell anything else?

This Saturday, AC/DC Lane will host the 50th Birthday Party of the Chupa Chup. There will be images, bands, and of course some candy to suck on.

Chupa Chups Lane
ACDC Lane
Saturday, 2PM-9PM

    Having spent 25 years in the South East Asia region I can guarantee you the folks there pronounce it as Chuh-pah-chuh-ps too.
