I've likely asked this before, but does anyone know of a source (or even know what I'm talking about) for soft stick candy? Not peppermint.

My aunt use to send us this from Texas every christmas when I was a kid and we'd fight over them. It looked like chalk. Pale colors like green and yellow, no stripes, so full of air we'd use them as straws and drink liquid up through them. I think they came in a small plastic sack with a twist tie. The closest in texture to them might be a butter mint.

I want to try and find some for mom's birthday in May. I did find an online source I'm going to try (Helm's) but thought I'd mention it here first in case someone knows what I'm talking about. I can't be the only one who had these - they were awesome.
