Ice cream pop sticks Fri, 05/2/08 3:45 PM (permalink)
Last week I had some ice cream pops in Santa Fe NM from a Mexican place (people from Mexico) south of town. Helado, I guess. They were pretty good, vanilla pop, dipped in chocolate, rolled in colored sprinkles.

As I was finishing it, the "center" was different: the wooden pop-stick was darker wood than I was used to and it ended in squared rather than rounded corhers. It somehow "tasted" better, although maybe it was the power of suggestion.

I guess the wood was from Mexico. (?) Does anyone know, or know of variations in the US? I usually "hate" the stick part in the US pops.....

    Most tongue depressors are made from white birchwood. I think the same wood is used for ice cream sticks and spoons. I think it all comes from our neighbors in China.

      Well these sticks were not from China or at least not from white birchwood. They were dark brown, grained and hard. But good. Does anyone know what I mean here?
