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.

1. Deep Fried Ravioli On A Stick

Well this was a pleasant surprise. Pasta you eat with your hands?! Off a stick!? Hello, life goals.

2. Banana Split Sticks

With summertime right around the corner, what better way to enjoy a banana split then on a stick? These are great for summertime parties and patio dinners, as you make them ahead of time and serve them up! It also makes for a healthy alternative to a classic banana split.

3. Pancake Pops

You’re gonna dip them in syrup anyways, might as well make them on a stick! Plus, the novelty of it all! #howtowinkidsover

4. Cookies On A Stick

I love this idea because they make them really fun to display, and even more fun to eat. I mean, cake pops are popular for a reason.

5. BLT Salad On A Stick

Ever eat a salad and try and get each fork full of all the best parts of the salad, only to struggle and end up with a big ol’ pile of plain lettuce at the bottom that you don’t want? Yeah, about that. Salad on a stick solves all your problems. Every bite is perfection.


6. Meatball Sub On A Stick

Perfect for game day, or just because. Dough woven between pre-made meatballs this is the perfect dip-worthy way to enjoy a meatball “sub”.

7. Spaghetti On A Stick

Brace yourselves, its spaghetti on a stick! It’s basically a pizza pocket, stuffed with spaghetti. A calzonetti, if you will.

8. Berry Pie On A Stick

Probably the most adorable thing ever, a miniature pie! Even better when these bite sized little babies are on a stick, too! Perfect summertime picnic packables.

9. Chicken Fajitas On A Stick

All the flavors of a chicken fajita nicely made up in kabob form. Not into dipping it? Simply grill first to cook, then take a fork and slide the chicken & veg right into a tortilla and eat it old school.


10. Rock Candy On A Stick

Classic. These oh-so-desired candies of your youth, are entirely in your power to make at home. At. Home.

11. Vodka Soaked Gummies On A Stick

Make sure these stay on the “adult” table, but these drunken gummies definitely deserve to land themselves on this list, because adulting is hard, and vodka soaked gummies makes it less hard.

12. Club Sandwich On A Stick

Perfect for parties, picnics and easy (but entertaining) lunchbox sandwiches. These little cuties are a skewer of joy.

13. Sprinkledoodles On A Stick

The more you can keep typically-wet-kid-fingers away from sprinkles that smear color all over your new cushions, the better. On a stick FTW!


14. Mashed Potatoes On A Stick

Fair food made right at home! You can customize these with add-ins like bacon or shredded cheese, or enjoy as-is, and dip as you like!

15. Mini Bunless Cheeseburgers On A Stick

The bun was only ever a carrier of all the goods inside anyways. Eliminate the bun and you’ll trim the calories when you stick-ify your burger ways.

16. Bacon On A Stick

YUP. Straight up bacon on a stick. Except this recipe makes them a candied smoked chipotle bacon, on a stick. Oh, heck yeah. 

17. Strawberry Shortcake On A Stick

Perfect as a summer appetizer, or dessert. Frankly, this is just a very sweet way to serve a strawberry shortcake, and easy too!


18. Maple Bacon Donuts On A Stick

Bacon and pre-made donut holes skewered up to make a kabob, then glazed with a homemade maple sugar glaze, makes these an unforgettable “on a stick” food.

19. French Toast On A Stick

Complete with fresh fruit between cubes of french toast, you’ve got the whole breakfast, on a kabob, ready for dipping.

20. Popcorn Balls On A Stick

The salty & sweet combo, oh boy is it ever something special. These naturally sweetened popcorn balls are the perfect combination of both, and then on a stick (obviously…I think we’ve all gathered that this was the point of this entire article by now). It only has TWO ingredients. Can you guess what they are?
