2016 Fair Food


Every year I anxiously await the day all the new foods are announced for the upcoming fair season. Well…today is the day! To my surprise, only TWO were on a stick! Although I was disappointed in the lack of excitement in that area, I was also a little bummed about the new options.



In my opinion, Spam is a little over-hyped and there are two new Spam items on the menu.

The Blue Moon Dine-In Theater always does a good job with their food and they are offering up Cheesy French Onion Monkey Bread . In my wold, Monkey Bread is cinnamon and sugar, but I am hoping that’t not the case. This one will make my “must get” list.

I am also excited about the Rustic Beef Pastry from French Meadow Bakery and Cafe. These guys have great food and I am hopeful this one won’t disappoint.

Having tasted food from almost every vendor that is on the new foods list, I am not overly optimistic that many of them will be in my “tops list”.

You know how when you go out to eat you can tell if food has been made in bulk and just reheated, or if it was made with quality ingredients? A handful of the vendors displaying new foods seem to fit into the first category and even though the titles look enticing, I won’t be going out of my way to try them.

That said…we all know I am a sucker for new things and ALWAYS willing to give vendors another chance to redeem themselves. I cannot wait for August!

Did you notice RC BBQ has replaced Famous Dave’s? I obviously haven’t tried their food yet but you know I will.
