Lemon Sticks- a large chalky peppermint stick, 1/2 lemon- jam the stick in the center and suck the minty sour goodness until your hands are all sticky.
I think this kind of ghetto treat is a Baltimore original (anyone?) like Berger cookies. I remember spring fairs in elementary school when we used to look forward to these treats.
My cousin was visiting Harborplace and we found a lemonade stand that sold them. The staff at first were surprised that it was being ordered, but they dug up the peppermint (probably years old) and made them for us.

I remember those from Philly in the 70s as well, though it was a lemon stick, not peppermint.

ETA: origins of the treat and the Philly variant here.
