My Top Five New Food Items at the Wisconsin State Fair
The Wisconsin State Fair is admittingly tough for me this year. I have my wedding in a little over a month, and when State Fair starts, we will be in the 20-day range. Now of course, we’re all trying to keep ourselves relatively skinny and fit here to the best of our ability. I didn’t need State Fiar coming around and introducing all their new food items. I feel obliged to check it out and try some of these things. There are multiple ones that sound good, but here were my choices for the five things that I would eat if going to the fair this August. Here’s the full list of new foods.
1. Country Fried Steak on a Stick – I’m not a big ‘On a stick’ guy truly. That’s not typically my thing. But I do love country fried steak any chance that I can get it. Enter in the option for a country-fried steak on a stick with gravy dipping sauce, I’m all in. If you go to a diner and don’t get the biscuits and gravy or country-fried steak, I don’t want to know you.
2. Crueller Crusted Chicken Sandwich – This is very State Fair right. Take something sweet and turn it into something savory as well. It’s a new take on a fried chicken sandwich with honey chipotle mustard, lettuce and tomato. Not a bad combination. Here’s why this plays too. It’s not overdone. They don’t add bacon or cheese. Sometimes overdoing it can lead to you feeling like a glutton.
3. Deep Fried Wisconsin Fish Fry – Do you trust eating fish at the State Fair? I would be a little heistant. Maybe this is an end of the day sort of meal and if I need to dump out in the cow’s pasture, so be it. It is basically all of the elements of a fish fry stuffed into one piece of fish. It’s very interesting and unique hence why it’s worth the try. People who don’t eat fish fry’s outside of Lent should have their Wisconsinite card taken away.
4. Prime Rib Jerky on a stick – Not sure if you know this about me but I’m a big jerky guy. It is my number one gas trip snack and there isn’t a close second. Prime Rib dried out feels like a waste of prime rib, but still, it’s worth a try.
5. Irish Coffee Sundae – I needed to add a dessert option in, and I feel this is the best one. I’m not a huge Irish whiskey guy which is what the ice cream is, but the other components such as salted coffee caramel, coffee peanuts make it worth it.
