Minnesoata State Fair Food
- paz Aug 24, 2000 10:30 AM
Has anyone visited the Minnesota State Fair so far and found anything new and adventurous on a stick? Does anyone have time-honored favorites they would recommend?
My favorite idea is pickles-on-a-stick. Most cringeworthy (to my taste) is pork-chop-on-a-stick. Fried cheese curds, if you like such fatbombs, are much better when not cooked on a stick. Corndogs, however, rule (and are different from Pronto Pups, which, I think, have much less corn, but are also okay).
My favorite State Fair food last year: Plain, sweet strawberries with lots of fresh whipped cream. They just taste better when bought from a blue-haired old lady at a little stand and eaten in the sunshine next to a large, shiny tractor.
One of the rather interesting things I found at the fair yesterday is called a scotch egg. (I think it was down by the cattle or horse barns??) A scotch egg is a hardboiled egg wrapped with sausage, breaded, and fried. I didn't try it myself, but my brother in law said they were great. Reminded him of breakfast. Another would be alligator on a stick. Not brave enough to try that. Hope this helps!
