We were walking through Wal-Mart yesterday. (I know! What a shocker!) Anyway, I saw these peppermint sticks. Not the shiny candy cane kind, but the soft, candy store ones.
The ones you make lemon sticks with!
So I picked them up and told Andrew we had to get some lemons. He had no idea what I was talking about. And no, he had never sucked a lemon through a peppermint stick. Was I feeling alright?
I was stunned.
Stunned, I say.
It wasn’t until we got home that I realized that this is a Baltimore tradition.
And a yummy (albeit sticky) one at that!
We all enjoyed our lemon sticks immensely.
