Fruit-flavor stick candy? Thu, 11/8/07 11:03 AM (permalink)
My brother was racking his brain trying to recall assorted fruit flavor candy sticks, sold in a bunch, smaller than standard candy canes, and less solid, easier to break up. Ring a bell to anyone? He thinks a large concern like Russell Stover made them. Like thirty or more years ago.

    I have found them in specialty stores and in malls where they have old fashioned candy stores.

      I've seen candy-cane size/consistency sticks in old-time candy stores in apothecary jars, where they still have horehound as a flavor, but that's definitely not it. My brother said the density was close to those puffy mint balls - I sure don't remember them though, and I was all about the candy back then...

        I was poking around the net for the soft candy sticks you were asking about and found this link...scroll down the candy page to near bottom and you will see assorted soft candy sticks.
        Hope this helps.

          No fruit-flavored candy sticks on this site, but you will find a soft mint stick. I believe they are made by the Piedmont Candy Company:

            I don't know about soft ones, but Cracker Barrel carries the hard candy sticks in all different flavors... they look like the straight part of a candy cane.

              Maybe Reception Stick Candy .. they are found in stores like Ross Marshall's TJMaxx these days

                They were called Russell Stover Straws and are no longer made.
