In many cultures, snacks and road-side food are served on a stick or a skewer.

Savory or Sweet

These snacks are usually chunks of vegetables or meat that are grilled, baked, or fried. Food on a stick can be savory or sweet and can be served hot or cold.

Meat on a Stick

Kebabs (kebap or kebob) are some of the most well-known snacks that are cooked and or served on sticks. Usually made of lamb meat, though pork, beef, and chicken can also be used to make the dish, kebabs are eaten around the world as a snack or as a main dish.

Easy to Handle

Another favorite food on a stick, typically found at fairs and food markets is a corn dog - a sausage that is dipped in a batter and fried.

Sweet snacks that are often served on a stick include caramel apples, ice pops, and cotton candy.

How to Celebrate?

  • Throw an everything-on-a-stick-party and serve your guests food and drinks (think popsicles) on a stick.
  • Rethink what you eat daily as dishes on a stick. What about making pancakes on a stick or pies on a stick?
  • Prefer to be healthy? Eat fruit on a stick.
