18 Weirdest And Unique Foods On A Stick At The Minnesota State Fair
Did you know today is National Something on a Stick Day?
If you’re asking me it seems weird that it’s in March and not in the summer when all the state and county fairs are going on, but I digress.
With that, it got me thinking “what was all at the State Fair that just happened to be on a stick?”
I took to the internet and while I found the classics and things you would think to put on a stick, there are defiantly some weird ones. Yet we all love to enjoy them.
Aside from Pronto Pups, Cotton Candy, and Walleye on a stick what else can be found at the state fair on a stick? I found the whole list from the 2022 State Fair thanks to discoverthecities.com, and boy are there a lot.
Here are all the weird and interesting foods you can get on a stick at the Minnesota State Fair:
