Does anyone know where I can find chocolate filled candy straws (must be 4-4 1/2" tall... I need them in pastel colors to use as cake decorations for a cake due on Sunday. The only ones I have found are the tiny ones. I am really needing your help!

Hi lindy01!

I never got the notice of your reply until I was checking some of my forums looking for something else... to answer your question, candy straws are candy sticks with closed pinched ends... sometimes filled with chocolate, lemon filling, or just totally the whole sugar stick without filling. Think of a peppermint stick, but very skinny. They make a great presentation when placed vertically around a cake. You can tie a fancy ribbon around it and your cakes look fantastic! I used to get them at a particular store here in my hometown, but they went out of business. Now, I am still seeking a source for 4" - 4 1/2 " candy sticks.

Again, sorry for the delay.

I know exactly what you are writing about, but I haven't seen them in many, many years.

Both Figi's and Vermont Country Store carry them, but from the pictures I saw, they are not the size you are looking for.

If I spot them in a bigger size I will let you know.
