So, yeah, I know they're not a baked product.  I've just started making them.  They are a wee bit trickier than I thought a first.  I now know to watch the sugar content (i seriously considered buying a brix meter for a few minutes) and to soak the sticks for a good 20 minutes.  Packaging is a bit of a pain, but manageable.  I'm using a 6"  gussetted cello bag and a twist tie.  

Any advice?

Aren't they like mexican popsicles with fruit in them? So what is your recipe for the ones that you are making? I have never tried to make them before.

I've never heard that name before. I've made popsicles before in those cheap plastic thingies,but we usually just buy the all-fruit popsicles from the store.

They're everywhere here, but they come in from Mexico or they're made here.  There's a Mexican food place within a half mile of anywhere so there are umpteen thousand folks making them who really know how.
