1) A trip to the Minnesota Get-Together without a pronto pup? Sucka foo. 2) Don't knock the pork chop on a stick until you've tested it.

And they missed the best food on a stick at the Minnesota Fair - the Fried Twinkie on a Stick.

And I thought that pronto pups were only summer in Grand Haven, Michigan food. It seems they have migrated across the lake.

we saw people walking around blindly whilst gobbling the pups - shoving the entire stake into their mouths, asking to be pushed over to their deaths, death by pronto pup stake. it was enough to keep us away.

I go on a crash diet 3-4 works prior to the Minnesota State Fair. For more than a decade, a friend and I have engaged in multi-day food wars in a united effort to take the art of fair eating where it has never gone before. My record day this year (not even close to my personal best, back when I was young and spry) is outlined below:

Beer ($5)
Deep Fried Cheese Curds ($3)
Pronto Pop ($3)
Beer ($5)
Roasted Corn ($2)
Pork Chop on a Stick ($5)
Beer ($5)
French Fry Bucket ($4.75)

Alligator on a Stick ($3.25)
Beer ($5)
Turkey Jerky ($3)
