As the summer winds down the Iowa State Fair is kicking off. This year the fair runs from August 10th-20th. The best part of the fair is seeing what the wares the food entrepreneurs bring. A fan favorite is food on a stick. In the spirit of the fair this week lets review my top ten foods on a stick from past Iowa State fairs.

1. Turkey Leg Drumstick


2. Griddle Stick (Turkey sausage wrapped in a pancake)

3. Chocolate Covered Cookies & Cream on a Stick

4. Cheddar Bacon Cheese On a Stick

6. Loaded Taters On a Stick

7. Apple Pie On a Stick


8. Rib Shack Cowboy 

9. Deep-Fried Brownie On a Stick
