fishing pole pretzels

do you have an animal you don't like?
spiders? 
alligators?
sloths?

as for me, i hate worms.
any kind of worm.
they give me the heebie jeebies.

i can handle any kind of blood and guts and dismemberment (and i'm only saying that cuz i'm a nurse) but show me a worm and that's the end of me.

especially maggots.
OMG even typing that word sends me straight to anxietyville.
heck i can't even handle gummy worms.

so why all this wormy talk?
well, it's cuz a ton of people use worms in the summer months.
for fishing.
cuz apparently fishes love worms.

yick! gag! hurl!

ok that's enough gross talk.
let's get on to the good stuff shall we?
like this:
it's an edible fishing pole 
(if you don't count the attached string at least).
and the best part about it is there are NO worms involved.

i am in the middle of making a fishing/camping/hunting party for a stepdad's 60th bday of a very good friend of mine.
he loves all that outdoorsy stuff so i had to make a fishing pole treat for the party.

here's how to do it.
i used a clean roll of string taken straight outta the package.
if you are freaked out about using string, maybe you can try dental floss for the fishing line.
i've seen people use licorice before but 
licorice and pretzels=weird taste to me.
string and pretzels=yummy (?!?!?!)

those mega m&m's are on steroids i just know it.
ok so hey i heard some of those fishes got away from the sharks a week or so ago but uh oh! looks like they were caught instead...

let's stick them in a glass to display them shall we?
and warn everyone to 
REMOVE the string when they munch on them.
cuz if they eat the string they will get upset with you and then you'll have to worm your way out of it.
yick! gag! hurl!

  1. LOL! These are darling! I'm stashing the idea in my grandma camp folder for next summer. The kids will love teasing the cats with them, then popping them into their mouth covered in fur and crawling with germs from "litter box toes!" Bad news: that's actually happened before! Good news: they're all still alive! Some things you just can't get there quickly enough to intercept!
