Snort that stick!
It seems that everyone I know has snorted a Pixy Stick at least once.
Isn't this like.. unhealthy? I mean.. come on. -Isequals 21:02, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
- I wouldn't do it myself, because yeah, it probably isn't too healthy, plus I don't like the idea of sucking solids up my nose. I had a friend in high school who snorted kool-aid, and another who (accidentally) snorted ground up altoids. That sucked. The crazy things people do when they're young.

--- Inhaling sugar or any other food into the lungs or sinuses is a quick way to get pneumonia or a sinus infection.

- I dont think it would do anything except make your lungs sticky... but go ahead
Smoking sugar would be a thoroughly unpleasant experience. Have you ever seen sugar burn? It turns black and stinky, releasing water vapor, carbon dioxide and a quantity of pure carbon. You may as well just inhale a bunch of coal dust.
They're not just a Willy Wonka brand candy. Sathers makes them, and I remember having them back in the early 70s when I was a kid, and Willy Wonka candy didn't exist then.
Actually, Sweetarts and Wonka are registered trademarks of Nestle. No one else can legally use the name as a brand. So, you are mistaken about there being any other candy currently being sold under this name. It's possible that another company may have used the name "Sweet and Tarts" or similar name decades ago. But they didn't use the Sweetarts name. --- —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:58, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
I remember them in the 60's I think they showed up around 1962 just after the minimum wage at the start of the year. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:45, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
Interesting history here, but it doesn't list when they changed to the form of 'stix', it only mentions that at one point they spun off into sweetarts. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:45, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
