Oddly enough, Pixie Sticks where never very high on my list of candies to try. I had poor memory’s of kids on the playground daring each other to snort them and being glad I had an excuse not to give into the taunting. Why would anyone put sugar voluntarily up their nose? It sounded painful and uncomfortable and kind of stupid. I can’t even recall if any of the kids actually did it, or if everyone had chickened out and just eaten them but I never really wanted them very badly after that day.
Now of course I have an even better reason to be uninterested. Those are disgusting. A month or two ago my sister decided to eat a packet of Koolaid right from the little package, and this is what I pictured it tasted like. Then again, I don’t like strong sour flavors at the best of times. Why would I work so hard to open up that impossible little sleeve when there is no reward?
