State Fair Sells Ants on a Stick

August 30, 2018

Obviously the food in Louisiana is better than anywhere else, but the people in Wisconsin have clearly given up.

Food on a stick is big at state fairs across the country, but the Wisonsin State Fair has decided to add some yuck-factor if you ask me. Actual ants on a pretzel stick that's rolled in marshmello fluff. People are paying for this???

The Wisconsin State Fair is happening right now and it is all about the food!! And it's all on a stick- hot dog on a stick, fried olives on a stick, cheese on a stick, sangria on a stick, ants on a stick, scorpions on a stick.. nope, I am not making any of that up. I had ants for the first time! The Exotic Meats stand puts marshmallow fluff on a pretzel stick and then rolls it around in a bag of bugs of your choice. I only had the ants, but I heard the scorpion was pretty good too. My husband was also really into the Milk House stand that had 50 cent cups of flavored milk. We tried them all- my favorite was the strawberry and his was the salted caramel. Check it out before it shuts down on the 12th! #travel #statefair #wisconsin #wisconsinstatefair #usatravel #summerfun #exoticeats #antsonastick #deepfriedolives #everythingonastick
