After taste

I didn’t like them because it tasted like it had an after taste and I didn’t like the flavors either.

Not the exact same as Pixy Stix, but I'm picky

As a product in itself, there is nothing wrong with Silly Stix, and it's extremely affordable. As a replacement for Pixy Stix however, unfortunately they do not meet the mark.

Pixy Stix have and always will be my all time favorite candy. I am not a chocolate person and there isnt a whole lot I like candy wise. I just really love powdered candies and lollies for the most part. But I'm hearing Pixy Stix are being discontinued and I have what I believe is likely to be my last bag ever. I found these and wanted to see if they truly did taste the same.

Visually, they are obviously extremely similar. However the big difference is the taste in that Silly Stix are not sour at all like Pixy Stix are. Silly Stix are much sweeter. I would say the grape is very similar to the powder in grape Baby Bottle Pops; likewise, the cherry flavor is similar to cherry FunDip. Both of these are perfectly fine flavors...that are meant to be combined with lollipops/candy sticks. It's a pretty overwhelming amount of sweetness and artificial flavor when you dump a bunch of it on your tongue. The orange flavor is very orange-y and sweet, and the tropical punch is fine, just very sweet and not sour at all. Pixy Stix have a level of sourness that isn't present with this candy

It should also be noted that Pixy Stix are made with dextrose, maltodextrin, and citric acid (among other flavors) and Silly Stix are made with dextrose, *sugar*, and citric acid (among other stuff). I would assume this is the main reason for the big flavor difference.

I understand they obviously can't just steal the exact recipe and sell it as their own, I'm just pointing out these differences for other people looking to replace their favorite pixy stix. I have both candies as of right now so I can tell the difference very easily. If you haven't had them in several years it might not matter as much to you as it does to me.

It seems a bit harsh to give it 3 stars I feel, since I appreciate what this place is trying to do, but I just wanted to be honest.

It was just what we wanted. Thank you!

Candy memories

Everyone has their own special memories involving candy we grew up eating. We are very excited to hear yours!

When my 2 sisters and I were young, back in the late 50’s, our Dad would take us to the neighborhood playground. When we were playing in the sandbox, Dad would toss coins into the sand when we weren’t looking. We really thought we were finding lost treasure!

This was back when this candy was called $100,000 bars, not 100 Grand bars. I remember going to my friend Cori's birthday party in elementary school, maybe third grade. At the party her mom told us that we were each going to get $100,000...

When I was a kid we always got Good and Plenty when we went to the movies. My sister would only eat the pink ones, even though I kept telling her they tasted the same as the white ones. Just seeing them today reminds me of my little sister and the sweet taste of black licorice.
