Food on a stick is at least 37 percent more fun than food that's NOT on a stick. Here are some of our favorite impaled market finds, skewered restaurant picks, and HG recipes. These keep us singing, "I've got the world on a stick..."

  On a Stick, At the Market!

So Delicious Coconut Milk No Sugar Added Fudge Bar Minis
PER SERVING (1 bar): 80 calories, 6g fat, 55mg sodium, 14g carbs, 8g fiber, 1g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Remember that scoopable chocolate-coconut frozen dessert we recently buzzed about? These pops are the handheld versions. We love that this find doesn't require us to portion it out ourselves (which is always dangerous). We REALLY love the fact that each pop has a mere 80 calories... and is naturally sweetened... and has 8g fiber. OK, so we love a lot about these bars!

  MorningStar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs

PER SERVING (1 corn dog): 150 calories, 2.5g fat, 470mg sodium, 26g carbs, 3g fiber, 8g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

They were gone, but now they're back. In case you've never tried these meatless corn dogs, we have this message for you: DO IT NOW. They're seriously delicious and great for anyone with a junk-food itch to scratch. Plus they have WAY less fat than most other corn-battered dogs on sticks. Craving corn dogs for breakfast? Check out this pick!

  Jamba Yogurt & Sorbet Bars, Coconut Pineapple Passion Smashin'

PER SERVING (1 bar): 90 calories, 2g fat, 20mg sodium, 18g carbs, 3g fiber, 12g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

This freezy find is our summer crush from last year, and now that the temps are getting higher, we can't help thinking about it all over again. That creamy yogurt... that yummy fruit swirl... Oh heck, true love lasts forever, so we're gonna be coming back for it as long as it's around!

  Restaurant Picks on Sticks!

Applebee's Grilled Shrimp & Island Rice
PER SERVING (one order, as served): 370 calories, 4.5g fat, 1,990mg sodium, 56g carbs, 5g fiber, sugars n.a., 29g protein -- PointsPlus® value 9*

There's something about grilled, island-inspired recipes that seems so right during the warm summer months. But ones that pack in a lot of calories and fat grams are a bad idea, especially when entering a season of skimpy clothing. Luckily, this meal has you covered with less than 400 calories and loads of flavor. NICE. (Fair warning: Sodium counters should skip it.)

  Romano's Macaroni Grill Grilled Chicken Spiedini

PER SERVING (one order with sides): 390 calories, total fat n.a., 1.5g saturated fat, 970mg sodium, 31g carbs, fiber n.a., sugars n.a., protein n.a.

We've had less need to pick on Macaroni Grill (formerly a common subject of "shocker" emails) ever since its massive menu revamp. This skewered meat dish doesn't feature ordinary sticks -- it has rosemary sticks! Oooooh... The full line of spiedini has 320 - 660 calories (the highest numbers are for the salmon). This chicken version is our top pick. Mmmmmm...


Make mini skewers! Load up a few toothpicks with chunks of Mini Babybel Light cheese, strawberries, and apples -- great as an easy party appetizer OR a super snack that's ready in seconds!
