It really baffles my mind how anybody could come up with any new choices of food to serve at the Minnesota State Fair, but apparently there will be a whopping 31 different ones to try out this year.

When I lived in the Twin Cities we would go the State Fair every year with one goal in mind and that was food. I usually would take in a show or too, but since I am not into rides we would hit all the favorite food spots.

If I was going to the state fair, these are my top 5 foods I would try out:

  1. Bacon Up Pup- This makes my mouth water.. A Belgian Waffle made with bacon batter, dipped in chocolate, drizzled with maple syrup topped with whipped cream and it is on a stick!  *Granny's Kitchen Fudge Puppies*
  2. Cheesy Nacho Corn on the Cob- This sounds so gross, but so good at the same time. It is made up of Roasted Corn on the Cob, smothered in crushed Dorito chips and Nacho cheese. *Texas Steak Out*
  3. Double Dose of Pork Belly- Get your pork on with this oneGround Pork Belly burger topped with crisp, smoked pork belly . pepper jack cheese, coleslaw,and pickled onions served on a toasted bun. *RC's BBQ*
  4. Fall Guy Breakfast Panini-Oh yeah, make it two. Capicola and scrambled eggs, topped with white cheddar cheese on ciabatta bread. *The Hideaway Speakeasy*
  5. Honey Puffs- Really how could anyone resist this one? Deep fried dough balls. tossed in sweet syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. *Dino's Gyros*
