As a nostalgic candy store in the Dallas area we try to keep up with the stuff that you can't necessarily find anywhere else.
The Chick-O-Stick is a candy produced by Atkinson Candy Company, and has been in manufacture since the Great Depression. Atkinson is right here in Texas so you can happily chew your Chick-O-Stick and support the local Texas economy too! Chick-O-Sticks are a peanut butter and toasted coconut candy. For those that are watching their figures, they don't contain any Trans Fat!
Chick-O-Stick is a nostalgic orange stick candy of varying length and thickness, dusted with ground coconut. The interior of the stick is honeycombed with peanut butter and the orange hardened syrup/sugar mixture that also forms the shell. These are often referred to as chicken legs. The original Chick-O-Stick packaging had a chicken wearing a cowboy hat on it.
Chick-O-Stick got its name when inter-company messages referred to the candy as "resembling fried chicken". The company founder one day and it just stuck.
