Will Miss #312 - food on sticks

Back home, certain types of food are sold on sticks. Mainly, corn dogs, cotton candy, and lollipops. When it comes to "real food",  you're more likely to get a bowl with a plastic utensil. In Japan, if it can be threaded on a stick, the Japanese will find a way. Fruit, vegetables, seafood, and any type of meat you can think of are skewered and served up for one-handed consumption.This method also creates far less material waste.

This is far handier when you're walking around and want to have a nosh than messing around with a plastic container and a flimsy plastic fork, and I'll miss it.
