Where to buy Popsicle Sticks?

I want to know where I can buy food safe popsicle sticks?  I read that some "craft sticks" found in craft stores are not food safe.   Some have a coating and some don't.  To be safe I want the ones that are specifically for food.

Some bulk food supply stores like Sysco or GFS also sell to the public. You might try using "food grade popsicle sticks" as a keyword search on the internet.

You can usually get them at craft stores. I know Michael's sells them. It says right on the box if they are food safe or not. I just bought two big boxes last week and they say they are food safe.

This!

I would recommend avoiding craft sticks and just head over to the candy making section. Stuff there should be clearly labeled food safe.

Try searching for "coffee stir sticks" and not just popsicle sticks. We get ours for work at Costco or another similar store in boxes of 1000.

Assuming you mean an ice-lolly stick, Lakeland do them, and since they're intended for cooking, not craft, they'll be food safe.

Thanks for this but they only take payment from UK bank cards.

May be a long shot, but when I worked at an ice cream factory we had a few random people that called looking for them and we would sell them a box. I know it's a small chance you have an ice cream factory nearby ... but worth a shot LOL

Once upon a time there were ice cream factories here. Some are out of business . One outsourced the ice cream making part to other companies.

How about wooden tongue depressors from a medical supply?

Best price is at http://coldmolds.com/ and they're a high quality, food grade stick.

Thanks Steve! This is exactly what I'm looking for. They have more than one type, which is a bonus. I went to some places others recommended and only found cake pop sticks. Which is not the same thing.
