Here’s the next installment in the Food on a Stick journey, from Charlotte:
Being an adventurous sort, I’ll try almost any food once. We went to the Crawdad Festival in Harrison, Arkansas in May this year with some of our car club friends. We were walking around the festival grounds when I spotted a booth selling “Cheeseburger on a Stick”. Well of course I had to try it.
Now I’m thinking a regular cheeseburger on a bun that they somehow managed to get to stay on a stick. Nope, not at all! It turned out to be a hamburger log with cheese flecks through it, dipped in corn dog batter, and deep fried. Can’t say it is my new favorite food but it was worth a try.
I also had a caramel apple dipped in peanuts on a stick but that was an old time favorite from my youth when the big outing of the summer was an all day & well into the night visit to the Missouri State Fair.
Not to be outdone, David stuck one of his crawfish on a stick, but couldn’t eat it that way.
We are going to Germany in Sept this year and I’m looking forward to trying a Stecherlfisch or as we would call it a fish on a stick. Usually served with a pretzel and a big beer. Yum-yum.
