Old-school, wooden popsicle sticks in South Brooklyn?

Looking for popsicle sticks (and, ideally, molds) in or around Carroll Gardens, but will also travel to other parts of Brooklyn or Manhattan for them.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Michael's should have them (they package them as "craft sticks" ). Just as easy to order from Amazon.

    1. like ferret said. educational supply and craft supply places should carry them. Im out of date on this stuff, but I have bought in Brooklyn before.

        You could try this place on Livingston although I'm not sure if they're "food quality". (It's a nice store, I just don't know if there's a difference, although it being a school supply store I'd imagine it's expected that everything will end up in a kid's mouth.)

      2. There is a difference between basic craft sticks and food grade sticks for use in making popsicles. Amazon does indeed have food grade sticks (along with a big selection of molds in a wide price range) in fairly large quantities, but sadly the shipping is more than the item.

        Perhaps check at the Cook's Companion on Atlantic; since there's been an uptick in interest in homemade popsicle making this season, they probably carry molds and may carry the sticks or be able to source them for you.

        If Winn's Discount is still on Court at Degraw, which I believe it is, check in there. When I lived in CG, Winn's stocked just about everything under the sun.

          Winn is def still there and I second the rec. they do stock just about everything under the sun.

          cook's companion is a good high-end choice, in case you need your sticks from humanely logged trees and your molds free of the more noxious plasitcs : )
