John is more than my friend, he is also my husband and business partner. And he loves eating food that is fried, impaled with a stick or served in a paper tray. John finds himself near such culinary delicacies because of his job. He creates sculptures with balloons, which is an over-simplification of the magic he does with a non-traditional, transient medium. Check it out here.
I asked John what his favorite Food On A Stick is and he said it’s a corndog. The irony is that John has been vegetarian for about a year now and has had a corndog only once since making that change, which were made at home. I suspect his hunt for a vegetarian corndog will take us far from Kansas City.
We reminisced this morning about the many Foods On A Stick we have tried over the past 15 years. John pointed out the most disgusting he has sampled was the chocolate covered pickle on a stick at the Tulsa State Fair. I did not think it was disgusting and suggested we trek to the far side of the fairground the next day so we could get another one. That didn’t happen. Our tastes in food definitely varies but we both enjoyed the donut hole kabobs we spotted in Reno earlier this year at a fair convention. Now if they would just deep fry those…
John plans to seek out food on a stick in the Midwest and South over the next 4 months, throwing in a few impromptu trips to use up his frequent flyer miles in the search for Food On A Stick. Stay tuned!
