Have you had a lemon stick? Rob and I both remember the treat from fairs when we were children: a lemon, either cored or cut in half, with a peppermint stick used to slurp the juice. He had the idea to try to find the special peppermint sticks so we could make them at home and introduce them to the girls, and after some searching found some that arrived by UPS just a few days later. Score! We shared them with my sister’s family and they were a big hit.
The taste really took me back since my Mom ran the lemon stick booth at my elementary school’s spring fair. I remember gorging on lemon sticks until my lips burned!
