Once upon a time, somebody somewhere discovered that jabbing a hot dog with a skewer, coating it with batter, and then deep-frying it would be a delicious alternative to a bun. As history has shown, that genius individual was certainly correct.

Corn dogs just paved the way for what lay ahead in the future. Now, at every fair across the country, it is possible to get food items of every shape and variety clinging to an easy-to-carry stick. However, no longer must we wait for summer to enjoy all that food-on-a-stick can goodness. Now, all that deliciousness can be no farther away than the kitchen countertop.

The Nostalgia Electrics SOS-600 Snacks on a Stick Maker brings home carnival flavors in one easy-to-use appliance. The gadget measures about 10 inches square with a height of about 4 inches. The clamshell contrivance features six cavities complete with a channeled groove to allow room for the all-important stick. Home carnies are supplied with bamboo sticks along with some starter recipes to get the good times rolling. Depending upon the recipe, a half-dozen scrumptious treats will be ready to eat in as few as 5 to 8 minutes -- all without needing to navigate the fairgrounds.
