the good parts version
3 reasons:1. Labor. Someone has to put the food on thew stick.2. Food on a stick is usually deep fried. So you're looking at cooking oil and heating the cooking oil.3. Anything deep fried and put on a stick is way more delicious than the original, so you've got to pay a premium for that as well.:)
4. Caramel.5. Nuts.6. Chocolate.(speaking of apples, not hotdogs):)
I believe they charge more because its more of a novelty, but mainly just because they can.Apples, hot dogs whatever.Remember the high cost of wood.
I had a deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich (on a stick) at the fair on the weekend. Ya! It was $5.50! WTF? It wasn't that good either.
Maybe it's the portability factor that really skews the usual supply & demand ratio for snack foods? You know: if you want to be able to eat this hot dog Anytime, Anywhere, you're going to have to PAY dearly for that luxury. And oh, what a luxury it is! And, as previously mentioned, remember the cost of wood.
