Corn Ice Cream, Chocolate Jalapenos Among New Fair Food

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota State Fair is more than two months away, but we’re already getting a glimpse of some of the new foods coming to this year’s fair. And surprise — many of them come on a stick!

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Blue Moon Dine-In Theater is whipping up sweet-corn ice cream. They said there are two cobs-worth of corn in each quart of the vanilla-based ice cream.

A new on-a-stick specialty will be served at Andrew’s Watermelon Stand. They are spicing things up this year with chocolate-covered jalapenos.

For the lovers of all things deep fried and sweet, Sonny’s Spiral Chips and Tornado Potatoes will be deep-frying chocolate chip cookie dough.

Some of the other creations include a breakfast lollipop from Axel’s. It’s a deep-fried sausage patty on a stick and served with maple syrup.

Fair goers will also find a  Grilled Yankee Apple Pie and chocolate sandwich covered with powdered sugar too.

The Great Minnesota Get-Together starts on August 25 and runs through Labor Day.

    Ooh I can’t wait for the sweet corn ice cream. Sounds good.

    I will definitely try the deep fried cookie dough for sure.

    The jalapeno doesn’t really sound good – does the chocolate take away the spice?

    First of all I am not a fatty and not all the people that go to the fair are , and who the heck cares if there are people there that are over weight. You must have your own issues of your own to make that comment . Yes the sweet corn sounds yummy! Also I think Chocolate does take away some of the spice. Yumo! I can but can not wait for the fair. I can wait because that would mean summer almost over already. But I can not wait for the yummy food and etc. I love going to the fair.

    I think the last time I attended the state fair I was in 9th grade and my HS band had to play a concert there. It was so hot and humid that I swore I’d never go again. 20 years later I still haven’t attended.

    @ Sarah in outstate MN. What do you want? A medal, or a chest to pin it on. Honestly, do you really think anyone CARES if you haven’t gone in 20 years? Geez.
