Unique taste of oranges and peppermint

In a rare move, I rarely spend money this way, I bought 22 lbs of oranges to be shipped here to ICELAND (okay, it's not iceland but the high today will be 0 and the low -6).
To enjoy all that juicy juice, we re-enacted the girl scout routine learned when I was 13. Cut an x in the orange, break off the peppermint stick at the curve. Stick the peppermint stick into the orange, mush the orange and suck up the juice through the peppermint straw. The hole in the straw gets bigger the more you pull juice through the peppermint straw.
Was I the only girl scout around or did any of you enjoy oranges and peppermint sticks this way?
TIA ~Bliss

WHAT???? Ok, when I first saw this thread, I thought of the fresh peppermint and oranges and it sounds really refreshing. I had no idea you were talking about an actual peppermint stick. How do you get the hole in the stick started? And I went to Girl Scouts, but I must of slept through this lesson!!!

I don't know if it has a name?!
The peppermint sticks have a miniscule tiny natural hole through the middle. You have to suck really hard to get it started, then it gets easier as time goes on.

I have never noticed a hole in candy canes. I will have to look closer next time I have one.
