$25.2 Million Eating at the MN State Fair
This year, people spent $25.2 million at the 300 MN State Fair food vendors! Where does a person even start with 300 choices?! Anthony and I have a list of favorite vendors that we visit each year. And then we add new places to the list.
The first stop was the Big Fat Bacon stand (photo above). Thick pieces of bacon are grilled and served on a stick.
Next up was our favorite non-dessert stand. The grilled corn-on-the-cob. The corn is grilled, dunked in butter and sprinkled with salt. How could it not taste good?
Next up was a chocolate mousse churro from French Meadow Bakery.
Anthony enjoys the churro.
Would it be a visit to a state fair without a deep fried candy bar?
Me getting ready to bite into the gooey sweetness of a deep fried Snickers.
Our favorite dessert stand. Nitro Ice Cream. It's truly the best ice cream I've tasted. It's flash frozen, dense and very creamy.
