What you have there are Macrolous Strike Zone Hot Sticks....
Supposedly the diff. colored part had denser wood so they dont chip easy (LOAD OF CRAP)... Regular hot sticks, which are infinitely more common, are just cheapass sticks covered in plastic wrap and with some nylon tips shoved on. A girl in my school band uses them, religiously. She loses a tip at EVERY pep band, but continues to buy them.. and continues to bitch when they break...

those are just novelty sticks.. i wouldn't expect them to be quality at all. just wondering though.. would they leave blue marks all over your kit like black sticks would? either way.. they are pretty fruity looking to me.

there are some pretty bitchin' glow sticks actually.

but umm, i dunno. i have some sticks from Hard Rock Cafe which are exactly like that (but red and sexylike) and they play just fine.

I have exactly the same ones chippy, except they are black and gold. I didn't bother opening them, just for display. Never will be as good as Vater or VFirths really.
