Japanese-American Pocky® Sticks
These can be eaten plain, but most prefer them coated with a flavored coating. To coat with plain nuts, fruits, or other toppings: Dip room temperature sticks in simple syrup (sugar dissolved in water), then quickly roll in topping(s). Yogurt coatings and other coatings may be used too. To coat with chocolate: dip sticks in tempered chocolate and let stand until set. You can sprinkle on toppings before the chocolate hardens.
