These are pretty expensive individually and rare at local stores, but if you buy them in bulks, it gets significantly cheaper.  There are 24 posh pops in a tray. It comes with 4 flavors: fruit mix, watermelon, strawberry and berry (the classic ones). These are perfect for kids birthday parties.

8. Pixy Stix

Who remembers the fizzy taste you get after eating these? When we were kids, we wondered what the heck was in these sticks that made them so addictive.

Pixy Stix comes in a pack of 85 candy powder filled straw that come in the 4 classic flavors: Maui punch, grapes, orange, and cherry.
