peppermint lemon sticks

While researching small town summer fairs (we plan to visit one this year), I came across a description for these peppermint lemon sticks. Have you ever had one? They are amazing! To make them you simply cut off the top 1/3 of a lemon and insert a peppermint stick. As you suck, the stick hallows out and it produces the most refreshing summer combination of tangy and sweet. They are our new poolside treat and would be amazing served at any summer party.

If you don’t happen to have a stash of peppermint sticks left over from the holidays (what???) you can buy a box of them here.

PS. A hearty hooray for rolled up jean short season…

    Wow! That’s a childhood treat I remember. My family, friends, & I will still lemon & peppermint especially when we have a cold. If you like that one, try it with pickles. You can use peppermint or any flavored hard candy.

    I love these! They have always been a part of spring time festivals in Baltimore. I often wondered if they were kind of a local thing because many of my friends who have moved here have never heard of them before. Yummmm! :)
