Miss This? Try This – Candy Lipstick

in Candy Blog

Back in the day, there was a delicious cherry candy called a Candy Lipstick. It was bright red, and promised to make your lips match!


Sometimes the color got a little out of hand… And on your hands. And face. And clothes. Part of the appeal, right? The novelty lasted for quite a while, until Candy Lipstick was eventually discontinued.


Although they won’t give you a makeover, Cherry Flipsticks are amazingly similar to the cosmetic candy! The name is eerily similar, and the packaging looks just like an old lipstick tube. Compare the two here:


Flipsticks, the less mess version of the old favorite.


And its old candy lipstick counterpart!


Close as can be, you can satisfy your Candy Lipstick craving with the yummy Cherry Flipstick. Enjoy!

@ Melissa which commented 8/23…I know exactly the candy you are talking about!!!! I wish I can find those again, those were the best memories of my childhood!!!


I can’t find these anywhere. I’ve searched and searched. Anybody have any luck??


Loved that candy reminded me of grease paints or clown makeup.


The lipstick candy I had growing up, was not a taffy. The candy was not hard nor soft. They were a bit chalkie in texture. These Flipsticks, look like a taffy texture. Am I mistakin? If so, I don’t know how they could be close to the lipstick candy, back in the day!


I would love to be able to buy this again and share them with my kids and grandkids
