Lemons with peppermint sticks [moved from What's My Craving board]

Melusina54 | | Jul 21, 2007 12:41 PM

As a kid, one of my fondest memories was going to the Annapolis Fine Arts Festival every year and getting a whole lemon with the top cut off and a short, fat, peppermint stick stuck inside of it. The peppermint sticks were slightly hollow or "straw-like" and one would suck the lemon juice through the peppermint stick...it was a sticky, delicious mess! Does anyone know where I could find peppermint sticks like these so I could make this bit of nostalgia at home?

Im looking for an on-line source, but currently live in Raleigh and travel to the Annapolis/Baltimore/Washington area and have family in Hilton Head and Portland (ME) areas that would also be willing to help me procure these elusive peppermint sticks! Thanks.
