Went by the Candy Palace Saturday and saw a sign in the window I had never seen before. Candy Sticks. I went inside and they were just starting. It is the same process as the candy canes. Only difference is the flavors. It was cherry and butterscotch. It took about an hour and half to make the sticks. The CM said that it was the first time since 1986 they had made these. Only 40 made per batch,2 times a day. Cost was about $10. The next date is July 2nd or 3rd they said. Also they told me about the new box of 6 mini cup cakes for $6.95. It has double chocolate, red velvet,vanilla coconut,carrot cake and 2 others. Just be sure to eat them right away, I waited a couple of hours and frosting came off the cup cakes
ADMIN NOTE: Update from Sue Kruse below
The candy sticks are big, they're the size of the candy canes that Disneyland makes at Christmas, they just aren't candy cane- shaped. They cost $9.95 for one but since they are over 11-inches long and roughly 1 1/4-inches in diameter & are handmade, the cost really isn't out of line. The orange-colored candy sticks are butterscotch flavored & the red, white, and blue striped candy sticks are cherry flavored. And ... they're pretty yummy.
