FADS Fun Sticks (a.k.a formerly known as FAGS) are a blast from our past and a Milk Bar staple. The word FAGS is also an Australian slang word for cigarettes and maybe a somewhat inappropriate word to use these days? But these musky flavoured candy sticks were a part of our childhood and on our list of candy to buy with our $1 budget. They were connected to cigarettes when smoking was not perceived to be bad (shock, horror!) yet-alone promoted to young kids. The original white candies were most certainly modelled after cigarettes (shock, horror again!) with a red tip to resemble a lit end and we would sit back in our bean bags and pretend to innocently smoke. We never turned out to be smokers in real life but enjoyed the iconic candy treat none-the-less.
