You could dress up an altoids tin for easy traveling! Would be PERFECT for someone trying to quit smoking to carry with them. Great idea! Thanks for sharing.

Oh ya. And if you are stuck, at Cracker Barrel restaurants (sadly not in Canada Sad ) They have cool tiny wooden carriers just big enough for a few.

I don't know if anyone made these for presents or not but everyone I made them for loved them. It was kind of strange that the reception was so good. My father in-law opened and shared his with everyone and my dad said little and stuck one in his mouth immediately. His wife then joined in and said they were going in the car glove box so when they go out for dinner they will be there since they always are looking for some. (Retirees eat out a lot.)

So when Father's day comes around make Dad some...he will actually use this gift! Smiley

I made them for my nephew, but he didn't show up for the holiday gift exchange so my youngest son and I have REALLY been enjoying them. After every meal we must have a toothpick. I caught him yesterday with one in his mouth while playing his PS3 game. He says..."Mom this is like a lollipop without ruining my teeth." LOL!!!

Too funny! I think that is why old men like them too. Grown up lollipops! So glad you are enjoying them. What flavor did you make?

Lemon, tried adding some raspberry to it but it wasn't raspberry oil so it didn't take well. but there is a hint of it there. gonna try orange next.

I did the lemon too since my son loves anything sour. The best, imo,although not usually a taste I enjoy was the anise. I hate licorice but in toothpick form it is yummy. I did see orange..hmmm. I think these will be made regularly. Did you love that intense smell in the house?

The smell of lemon in the house was awesome, but on my hands was even better. LOL!!!
