On A Stick

The running joke about food at the fair is that it is always "On A Stick." Pronto Pups, AKA Corn Dogs, were introduced there long before I was born, but only in recent years has the idea of putting otherwise normal foods on a wooden skewer taken off. "Pork-Chop-On-A-Stick" is a big hit. "Walleye-On-A-Stick" is actually pretty tasty, with the depths of decadence defined by the breaded, deep-fat fried "Snickers-On-A-Stick" and, if you can believe it, the breaded, deep-fried "Twinkie-On-A-Stick". YUM!

Actually, I did try a "Mocha-On-A-Stick" which was probably the ultimate in a Fudgsicle variation. With a caffeinated kick! My other Fair Food Favorite is a simple Cream Puff: fresh whipped cream on a equally fresh pastry. The real deal, and impossible to eat on a stick.

And then there's this:

MMMMMM! A frosty Mug-O-Maggots.

The frothy bit in the middle looks a lot like squidward!

I've actually had fried twinkie; it's one "food" that's best left on the plate (or stick)...

Sharon- wow! The resemblance is uncanny!

Comica- Walleye, as in Walleyed Pike, the most delicate tasting freshwater fish. Fry in a light batter with some lemon peel, almond crumbs, a hint of cayenne pepper, with a sprinkle of sea salt. Double Yum!
