The 5 Weirdest New State Fair Foods I Will Probably Try
We’re just a couple months away from the Great Minnesota Get-Together, and if you’re like me, you’re excited to stuff your face with deliciously deep-fried grub that would make any nutritionist go into convulsions. I try heading up to the Minnesota State Fair at least once a year, so needless to say I was looking forward to today, when they just announced the new food options for this year.
I think my favorite part about State Fair food is the overall weirdness – you can tell that the chefs like going outside the box. There are certain items that they almost dare you to try.
There are 31 new food items in total, but after a thorough examination, these are the 5 Weirdest New State Fair Foods that me and my clogged arteries are probably going to try - whether I like it or not.
What: Cream cheese dip with crab meat, green onions, fresh red pepper and water chestnuts, served with whole wheat flatbread crackers.
Where: The Hideaway Speakeasy
Why: I’m going to feel so fancy when I eat this fine delicacy while wearing a pinstripe suit in 90-degree weather.
What: Sliced bananas and sautéed bacon over tater tots, topped with peanut sauce.
Where: Snack House
Why: I can almost guarantee that my entire body will rebel against me the moment I finish this. Hopefully the lines at the bathroom aren’t long.
What: Flour tortilla filled with pepperoni, Italian sausage, risotto, mozzarella and marinara, coated with garlic butter, parmesan and Italian spices, baked and served with a side of marinara.
Where: Green Mill
Why: I will try anything that has either “pizza” or “rito” in its name.
Triple Truffle Trotters
What: Sliced peppers and bacon with black diamond truffle oil mayo on top of waffle fries.
Where: The Blue Barn
Why: This sounds like that one food where it’s pretty good for the first few bites until you realize that you’re only 10% done with it. If you eat this on a Saturday, expect your Sunday to be weird.
Cheesy Nacho Corn on the Cob
What: Roasted corn on the cob lightly coated with crushed Dorito corn chips and nacho cheese.
Where: Texas Steak Out
Why: You guys, corn is a vegetable, so this is basically a healthy and organic option – I tell myself as my man boobs grow one cup larger. I am going to annihilate this.
