While traveling through the south this week, I ran across these peppermint sticks ( I like Bob's brand) . You know the kind, they are shorter and thicker than candy canes and kind of soft and melty. I had to buy them so that I could make my children one of my very very favorite Baltimore treats. These Lemon Sticks originated at the Baltimore Flowermart.
All you do is stick a peppermint stick (the soft kind) into a lemon. As you suck, the lemon juice eats holes through the peppermint sticks and it becomes a straw. You suck the lemon juice out through your peppermint straw as you squeeze the lemon and you get what tastes like ice cold lemonade....sooooo good!
Some of you may be thinking "ewww, weird", but try it. I know you will like it. After you have tried it, come back here and tell me how much you love them!
