CNE - 2014 - Food at the Ex

I'm all set to go take in the Ex this year (Aug 15-Sept 1) even though it means summer is sadly coming to an end.

Their brochure highlights some new midway treats:
- bacon wrapped corn on the cob
- banana dipped in chocolate, rolled in funnel cake batter & deep fried

The Food Building has some new items this year:
- cocoa infused chicken (i.e. chocolate chicken)
- cheeseburger flavoured nachos
- deep fried churros (not sure how this is new unless it is double fried!)
- gourmet popsicles
- banana split maple toast & cheesecake milkshakes.

The Food trucks will also be returning from Aug 22-Aug 24.

If you go, please post your likes and dislikes!

        A friend said the chocolate chicken was really good. More of a mole than what it sounds.

        Going to go on the last weekend.

        1. Fidel Gastro's pad thai fries were pretty good. The price of $10 was pretty steep but not unexpected for CNE pricing. Didn't try anything else though.

          1. Glad you posted this bluefirefly, we're going next weekend and I'll be sure to post here. I thought I might try the peanut butter sriracha rolls after reading about them in the HuffPost:

              Thanks. Unfortunately, I didn't try anything super crazy that is worth reporting though my cousin ordered one of those colossal deep fried onions. Still looking forward to hearing what others liked and didn't!
