Los Angeles Times - - ROAD TRIPS FUEL -

What: They are, in or­der: sweet and sour can­dies; straws loaded with sweet and sour candy that has been pul­ver­ized; and tiny, peb­ble-like sweets, all part of the Nes­tle em­pire. De­tails: SweeTarts and Pixy Stix are all about sugar and tart­ness. Nerds are for those of us who like our tiny, crunchy bits in boxes that of­fer two fla­vors pour­ing out of two spouts. Trivia: Pixy Stix were a key in­gre­di­ent (along with Cap ’n Crunch) in a sand­wich made by Ally Sheedy in “The Break­fast Club.” Prices: SweeTarts, about 99 cents to $1.30 for a 1.8-ounce roll; Pixy Stix, about $1 to $2.49 for a pack of sev­eral straws in as­sorted fla­vors; Nerds; about $1 to $2 for a 1.65-ounce box
