Pixy Sticks

When Pixy Sticks were invented by Sunline Inc. in St. Louis, MO 1940’s, they were sold as a drink mix. The manufacturer learned that kids were eating the candy out of the package in the 1950’s and rebranded Pixy Sticks as a powdered candy. The Pixy Sticks are a sweet and sour colored powdered candy that comes in a wrapper that resembles a straw.
