"Oh the candy stick striped like a colorful barber’s pole was a luscious delight of my infantile soul,” so goes the old song. Around since the mid-nineteenth century, old-fashioned candy sticks are a true American original.
Candy sticks, sometimes called stick candy or barber poles, are made with a simple recipe, like so many other time-tested classics. We have the original peppermint sticks and a host of other fun and delicious flavors, such as lemon, butterscotch, cinnamon, watermelon, sour apple, cotton candy, root beer, tutti fruitti, and more.
If your commitment to old fashioned candy sticks runs deep, then you should certainly check out our Candy Stick Jar and Starter Kit that comes with dozens and dozens of our best-selling flavors plus 12 jars to put them in and a handsome wooden display rack. We have a smaller version with 6 jars if that suits you (or your countertop) better.
Old fashioned candy sticks may be time-tested, but they are fragile nevertheless. Please consider purchasing a protective thermo case upon check-out. As always, please let us know if you have any questions at all. And we are so excited that you have some treats coming your way!
