Ugly Sticks or Ugli Sticks (breadsticks)

"Prices range from $3.95 for ugly sticks (bread sticks)” was printed in the South Bend (IN) Tribune on October 3, 2005, in a review of Bob’s 19th Hole (South Bend, IN). “Visit Luisas.us & join Luisa’s Jittergram for a FREE order of our famous Ugli Sticks w.purchase of lunch or dinner! Your Ugli Sticks await!” was posted on Twitter by Luisas Pizzeria (Luisa’s Italian Pizzeria of Manchester, NH) on April 6, 2009.

Bob’s 19th Hole’s menu states that “Ugly Sticks” are “Warm bread sticks served with nacho cheese or marinara sauce ... 6.29.” Luisa’s Italian Pizzeria’s menu states that “Ugli Sticks” are “Homemade garlic breadsticks. Served with sauce.”

On the Ugly Toona Saloona (Columbus, OH) menu, “Ugly Sticks” are described as “Golden fried mozzarella sticks served with marinara sauce for dipping $4.99.”

It’s not known what establishment first served “Ugly Sticks,” or when they were first served. The appetizer name has been infrequently used.
