Lemons and Peppermint Sticks – Recipe for Fun!

  • Get a lemon & cut a conical hole in the top
  • Get a FAT peppermint stick (sometimes hard to find — these are JoyBrite for 99 cents, 10 inches long, 3/4 inch diameter — found at Walgreens)
  • Trim the ends of the peppermint stick and then cut into 3 or 4 pieces.  These will be your straws.  You can see little holes in the peppermint stick — this is important!
  • Put candy cane into lemon and start sucking!  The flow may be slow at first, but bigger holes will develop.  If nothing happens, trim the end a little more.  Have fun!

  1. Hi,
    It was so nice locating your directions for the peppermint straws w/ lemons. I’ve often mentioned these from my childhood to my husband. And I was able to show him. They good aren’t they!
    Thanks

  2. I loved eating the “lemon sticks” as a child. In Baltimore they were plentiful and sold at local festivals or fairs. Thanks for the fond memories.
