Chick-O-Stick, Chicken Leg, Chicken Bones, its all the same. A candy that we can barely keep in stock that has been manufactured since the Great Depression.
Chick-O-Stick is an orange candy in the shape of a tube or stick that is dusted with coconut. The stick itself is honeycombed with peanut butter and a hardened syrup/sugar mixture that forms a delicious dry/brittle candy.
Chic-O-Sticks original wrapper had a cartoon chicken wearing a cowboy hat and a badge in the shape of the manufacturer (Atkisons) logo. It was thought that the chicken on the label created confusion as to whether or not it was truly a candy or a chicken flavored cracker.
I have heard customers say that its taste is very close to a buttefinger without the chocolate and much flakier. I'd have to say my favorite thing about the Chick-O-Stick is that they are made here in Texas!
