Homemade Pixie Sticks - freeze dried fruit, sugar, and paper straws. Much better than the traditional pixie sticks.

Pixy Stix. Pixy Stix contents were originally sold as a drink mix in the 1940s but the manufacturer learned that kids were eating the sweet and sour powder right out of the package instead of mixing it with water. In the 1950s the tasty powder was repackaged as Pixy Stix.

fun b-day idea! Each color balloon could represent the month of the year. Give the balloon & pixie stick to the child for their bday gift. At the end of the year - you will have none. Great use for a vase that is collecting dust.

Called Pixy Stix, I remember these as being called Lik-M-Aid.  Kind of like powdered 'sweet tarts' in a little straw.  You bit off the end and poured the powder onto your tongue (which became brightly colored depending on your flavor!).  You had to be careful eating these because if you ate them too quickly you might inhale the powder and choke! Probably why they make 'SweeTarts' now, in chewable form.
