State Fair veteran's guide to: THE ESSENTIAL FOUR by Zander
Although it seems to be the fad to sell cheese curds now in restaurants and at other festivals, there's only one place and that's the Minnesota State Fair to get the real deal! Best on the grounds? The Original Deep Fried Cheese Curds (yellow booth on the street).
DEEP FRIED CANDY BAR
Can you really go wrong with this fairly recent new addition? My personal preference: deep fried milky way. It tastes almost like a pancake with powdered sugar, milk chocolate, and caramel. One word: delicious.
THE GIANT SLIDE
This state fair classic is there year after year and brings back memories from being a kid. Always a thrill. Fun to go with family, friends, you name it!
SWEET MARTHA'S COOKIES
Did you think I would leave out Sweet Martha's? Although a bit pricey, these cookies are a staple at the fair. Tip: get them while they're hot. There's a great debate whether they still taste as good at home in the bucket (I happen to think they still do). Of course I couldn't stop without some honorable mentions, after all it is hard to stop at four: pronto pups, mini donuts, crepes, fine arts building, Luigi fries, ye old mill, honey ice cream, scarecrow contest, grandstand, roasted corn, deep fried pickles, fresh french fries, scones, deep fried twinkies, pizza on a stick, orange treat, amateur talent contest, space tower, mac and cheese on a stick, footlong hot dog, and many many more!!
State Fair Must Have Food by Karen
Deep Fried Cheese Curds
We love the Cheese Curds and normally check out quite a few different booths each year.
Sweet Martha's Chocolate Chip Cookies
We have to get 2 buckets of these each year (there are 6 of us) so we eat a bunch there and take the rest home.
French Fries - In Bucket
Hubby and kids just adore these.
Our Autistic son just loves these and they are an early stop in the day to keep him happy.
