Poll: Do Certain Foods Taste Better on a Stick?

Do You Think Food Tastes Better When It's on a Stick?

After discovering my new favorite outdoor dinner fare, pork and mango skewers, and falling in love with Party's killer prosciutto, melon, and mozzarella brochettes, the two of us came to a consensus: certain foods simply taste better when they're served on a stick. Like nibbling on anything mini, there's something about the novelty of eating surf and turf, caprese salad, or pizza on a skewer that never seems to get old. I like to hope that the kebab trend will always stick around. What do you think? Does food taste better when it's on a stick?

Well, if it's just food prepared normally and then put on a stick...meh. It's different from food that has evolved to be cooked on a stick. How else can you suspend kebab meat directly over a fire without anything in a grill or a pan or whatever?

I'm not going to lie - actually eating food off of a skewer always makes me nervous!! I have this bizarre paranoia about sticking myself through the roof of my mouth ... blegh. I love the flavor of foods cooked on a spit or rotisserie style, but I like to pull it OFF the kebab and eat it, not bite it off the stick. I'm strange, I know.

Keep in mind that there are preparations for which skewered food is necessary to improve the flavor of the food or to cook the food properly. Rotisserie comes to mind. Same with s'mores. I don't think there's "novelty" to cooking a kebab on a kebab skewer any more than there's "novelty" in using a saute pan to saute. So the chocolate-dipped cheesecake on a stick is unnecessary in my book, but a skewered chicken satay *does* taste better because that's how the food is supposed to be made. To continue the analogy above, I would no more expect a good vegetable stir fry to come on a stick than expect a good pitta gyros to come out of a skillet.

No, it doesn't taste any better. It's the same food, only on a stick. I'm not going to shell out more money for food just because it's on a freaking stick, sorry.

I love going to fairs and trying to find and eat all I can on a stick. I was disappointed last time I went and I couldn't even find pizza on a stick, that was a fav of mine.

Indifferent should be a choice.

Yep! I love food on a stick. Plus I found things taste better in the right place/situation. Examples being fried weirdness on a stick at fairs and carnivals (would probably never touch it during my normal life, but if I'm at a fair then I'm craving bad!) and "drunk" foods you would never probably eat sober (chilli-cheese dogs, White Castle...the list goes on).
