Chalupny Is Sweet


Almost no one calls Lori Chalupny Lori. She is known affectionately by her nickname Chalupa (as in Don't Drop the...), or on the soccer field (because it's even shorter to say) Chupa or Chups. So that's why it was amazing to find some candy here in Portugal named, wait for it...Chupa Chups. Lori, we mean Chalupa, is holding the chocolate ones above, but the company apparently also makes fruit chews and lollipops, and probably a bunch of other stuff we haven't seen. Does anyone else see a prime opportunity for an endorsement deal here?

Yep, in Europe (I'm french), we've got lots of Chupa Chups. Their main products are lollipops, and they're quite good :D.

those things have been around for years. my 8th grade teacher used to give them to us all of the time (and i'm 24 so that was a while ago).

Is the candy as good as Chalupa?

Lori, I'm rooting for you to score next game against Denmark! I'm so glad Pia is focusing on the team's confidence in dribbling and holding the the ball.

I'd be happy even if we don't bring home the goal this oly (god forbid) as long as we play entertaining soccer!
