Being at the State Fair, watching the Vikings play while fireworks are going off with a basket of cheese curds in your hand. ;)
My Favorite State Fair Sweets by Zemrad
Sweet Martha's Cookies
A bucket of melt-in-your-mouth chocolate love. They're especially good with a cool cup of milk.
Tom Thumb's Donuts
Hot cinnamon-sugar goodness. When the dining halls are full at 8 am, a sack of these lovelies makes the perfect morning snack.
Limeade at the Midway
The best way to cool off after waiting in the sun for the rides all afternoon.
Honey Ice Cream
Visit the Ag-Hort building to say hi to some hardworking honeybees and taste the fruits of their labor.
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!!
