Pixy Stix were invented by Sunline Inc. in St. Louis, Missouri. The concept for this powdered candy originated in 1942 and was derived from a penny drink mix sold similar too Kool-Aid. It was found that kids were eating the sweet and sour powder straight from the package, he modified the formula and branded it as Lik-M-Aid. In 1959 the product was packaged in color-striped straws and introduced as Pixy Stix. Several years later Lik-M-Aid was modified with a multi-compartment package containing two flavors and a candy stick used to dip the candy out of the package. Sunline, which later became The Sunmark Companies, was sold to Rowntree Mackintosh of the UK in 1986. Rowntree was in turn acquired by Nestlé. All of the Sunmark brands have now incorporated the Willy Wonka label. [credit wikipedia]
