Head north to enjoy these new fair foods

Nothing beats the Iowa State Fair in my opinoin, but you have to give them credit for trying.  The Minnesota State Fair begins next month too with a number of ‘fresh’ offerings including Fried Meatloaf!

Not everything listed may be on a stick, but you can bet it’s been fried in some manner.  Enjoy…

Bacon Cannoli 
It actually sounds good…as does anything with bacon. 
Grilled, Glazed Doughnut
Grilled lightly…with strawberry-mint dipping sauce how seasonal. 

Wine-Glazed Deep-Fried Meatloaf 
Sorry Mom, but I had to try this….mmmmmmmmmmm..
Fried Pickles ‘n’ Chocolate
If you think fried pickles are an aquired taste, then you might have something to say about fried pickles with chocolate.  Don’t knock it until you try it.  After all, you’re at the FAIR.

Cocoa Cheese Bites 
Don’t get this one.  Two flavors that should not be together.
English-Toffee Fudge Puppy
Considering the business is called Granny’s Kitchen Fudge Puppies and there’s a real granny running the show.  Why not?
