Eat with your Eyes: Blue Rock Candy

Blue Rock Candy

Rock candy sticks are usually sold as a fancy way to add sugar to your beverage. But they make a perfectly acceptable, if a bit sharp and chunky, lollipop.

  1. I’ve never heard of using rock candy as a drink stirrer before; that’s very clever.  We’ve always just treated it as a sucker, and just thinking about it has me feeling nostalgic for some now.  :D

  2. Never was a big fan of rock candy, but they really are beautiful with all the different colors they come in.  I would probably use them as decoration rather than to eat.

  4. They do have flavored rock candy. I know the local candy stores where I live have big buckets full of them in flavors like cotton candy, cherry, grape, root beer, apple, and some others. And I’ve never heard of it for a drink stirrer either. We used to make them at Girl Scout camp.
