I've used both, but didn't care much for the paper because the butter from the cookie soaked into the paper and discolored it slightly - made it look greasy.
Lately, I've been using bamboo skewers for my smaller cookies, and wooden chopsticks for the larger ones. We have a wonderful store here in town where I can get 100 pairs of chopsticks for about $2.00, so only a penny each, which is a better price than anything else I can find. I don't like the regular popsicle sticks only because they're not as long as I'd like them to be.
The other thing I like about the chopsticks is that the end I put in the cookie is round and small diameter, but they are tapered, so the other end is thicker and oval shaped, so the sticks are held securely in the foam and can't "spin".
