Eating food without utensils is one of the more simpler joys in life. You can dip, dunk, and destroy your kabobed foods, and maybe have pretend lightsaber fights with them when it’s on a stick. These days, it goes a whole lot further than just a basic (but still fantastic) corndog. While food on a stick is typical for street food and carnivals, it’s also a great party food since its easy to serve and fun to display. Food on a stick is especially popular during the warmer summer months with barbeque season and picnic season in full swing. Whatever the event or mood you’re in, there’s a food on a stick just for you. Here’s 20 of the best we could find, that you can make right at home.
