One thing you can count on for sure; Pixy Stix will never go out of style. This is a candy adults craved as kids, and they continue to be loved by each new generation. It is crazy that such a simple concept created such a huge craze, but there is just nothing else like them.
The powdered candy boasts bold, sweet and tart flavors, including cherry, grape, orange, and blue raspberry. All you do is tear open the end, and pour the sweet powder in your mouth to dissolve on your tongue. Interestingly, Pixy Stix was first marketed as a drink mix in the 1930s.
When it was discovered that kids were eating the flavored powder rather than turning it into a drink, it became packaged and marketed as candy. Since each of these Pixy Stix is individually wrapped, they are perfect for any occasion.
