Pap on the outside… sauce on the inside! Introducing an old South African favourite, in a totally new way to eat them. This is Papstix!


Heidelberg, South Africa (11 August 2020) – Whenever I think about my grandmother, I remember her Sunday lunches made with love and complete with something roasted for hours, potatoes, groenboontjies, pumpkin and pap en sous.

I would always go back for another round of pap en sous and could even eat it as an entire meal on its own.

It’s not often that I get the opportunity to taste a good old South African pap en sous nowadays, but a little company in Heidelberg caught my attention as they have recreated the delicious and homely dish… and turned it into something even more amazing called Papstix!

Papostix has created a patented, ready-to-eat, roll of maize meal with a tasty relish centre; the first convenience food made specifically with local food culture in mind. And they are delicious hot or cold.

A ready-to-eat meal-on-the-go consisting of a roll of pap with a delicious sauce in the middle – a new take on the traditional pap-en-sous! They come in 3 flavours: carrot chakalaka, tomato & onion, and chilli beef soya.

And the best part is – they only cost R11 each from the distribution business in the Western Cape! Where on earth can you get a satisfying meal for this price nowadays?!

The Papstix head office and factory is based in Heidelberg, however, the only area where they currently have an official distributor supplying the public at the moment is the Western Cape. You can visit the website by clicking here.

Distribution networks are still in the process of being set up in all the other provinces but at this stage, only bulk purchases of more than 2,500 stix can be purchased from the factory directly.
