A truly disturbing, artery-clogging concoction sold recently at the Scottish Country Fair at Macalester College, in St. Paul, Minnesota. It consists basically of a hard boiled egg on a stick, wrapped in sausage, covered in breading, and deep-fried. A Scottish Egg on a Stick is roughly the same size and shape of a caramel apple. Sold along with the Egg on a Stick were meatballs on a stick, which were to me far less troubling. Food on a stick is a Minnesota carnival food tradition, which can be found in full bloom at the Minnesota State fair, featuring some 28 different glorious foods on a stick.

Not being an omnivore, I declined the opportunity to try this amazing Scottisotan delicacy, instead opting for the cheese curds.
