CHARLESTON, SC – April 14, 2011 – Founders Mark Lenhart and Mandy Von See are pleased to announce that Team Candy Suckers, the first and only CLC (Collegiate Licensing Company) molded university and college mascot lollipops is now licensed by the LRG (License Resource Group) in addition to the CLC. The product received immediate approval for production by Appalachian State University, Wake Forest University and North Carolina State University.

Currently, Team Candy Suckers manufactures for 11 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and Southeastern Conference (SEC) teams as well as The Citadel of the Southern Conference.

To date, the line of spirited suckers includes: the South Carolina Gamecock Sucker, Citadel Bulldog Bone Sucker, Clemson Tiger Paw Sucker, Tennessee Smokey Top Sucker, Florida Gator Chomp Sucker, Arkansas Pig Sooie Sucker, Georgia Bulldog Bone Sucker, Auburn War Eagle Sucker, Kentucky Big Blue Sucker, LSU Tiger Sucker, TCU Horned Frog Sucker, and South Carolina Cocky Pop.

“The thought of one day seeing these lollipops in the hands of students at every major university is exciting to Team Candy Suckers.” says Von See. “We’ve received a great deal of interest from the both the students and the universities represented by the LRG. With this approval we are steadily seeing our goals for 2011 become a reality.”


All suckers are produced in the USA at family‐owned and operated candy company. Team Candy Suckers can be purchased online and at select retailers and concession stands. A portion of profits from the sucker sales are donated back to the colleges and universities they represent.
