On Fridays, I highlight products that I think are sweet, in every sense of the meaning–sometimes literally, but not always!
Last week I listed my top food favorites of the 2013 Minnesota State Fair. I am, though I kind of hate the word, a “foodie.” I pretty much attend the Fair exclusively for the eating that is involved.
But there’s so much more that I didn’t share! Different places, faces, views and experiences that I left out before…so here’s some of the sweet stuff that you didn’t see last week.
The people. I mentioned that there were so, so many people. The part I didn’t mention? There were 236,197 of them (1,731,000+ total).
If you’re into people-watching, this is your place.
The place to get the Fudge Puppies…
The mouthwatering menu at Granny’s Kitchen…
The fudge-puppy-creating in action…
And the inside of the final product.
And their friends. (Caption this!)
The friendly goats.
The Minnesota turkeys before…
The reasons why Turkey-to-Go is so popular:
The Blue Moon Dine-In Theatre…
Where you can get the famous-slash-infamous sweet corn ice cream, as well as allllllll of this:
The unassuming little stand where my favorite treat of the day (The deep-fried Reese’s peanut butter cup) came from:
The deep-fried Reese’s: before.
French Meadow Bakery & Cafe, home of The Dough-sant…
Warm dough-sants getting prepped and sprinkled with powdered sugar…
A brief (and slightly blurry–sorry!) look at the inside of a dough-sant.
The unbeatable view of the crowd and glimpse of the Minneapolis skyline from the Space Tower.
The horse with a blue eye (but just one. The other was brown).
And the Grandstand, which offered free admission to a talent show that night, complete with a fireworks display to finish off the night.
Just in case the deep-fried chocolate and peanut butter wasn’t your thing.
Disclaimer: I was not compensated in any way for this review. I am a proud Minnesotan, relatively new fair-goer and shameless foodie who enjoyed all of the above-mentioned experiences and therefore truthfully recommends them.
