I am so glad Minnesota has seasons. Because even though it’s August already (I’m still mad at June and July for coming and going in such haste), there’s stuff to look forward to. Vikings games, apple orchards, and, even sooner than those, The State Fair.
If you’re planning to go, save yourself the trouble of costly food mistakes…here are my recommendations (and things to skip) from last year.
I realize not everyone is on the same page with me regarding Sweet Martha’s (obviously, since they are the top-grossing vendor at the fair), but you would truly be better off buying a package of refrigerated Toll House dough and baking them at home. They are NOTHING SPECIAL. If you are looking for a baked good to go with your all-you-can-drink milk, get something from French Meadow Bakery’s stand. You will not be sorry!
New foods I’m hoping to try this year: Caramel Apple Puppy (from the Fudge Puppy stand) and O’Gara’s Sweet Potato Tots.
If you want to see what eats are at the fair this year, here’s a link to the Food Finder.
