Minnesota State Fair - 2016

Weeks ago, the Minnesota State Fair came and went again.  I put off posting because I've had other things on my mind.  But I love it, and go at least once every year.  I was a little concerned because 90% of the reason I go is the food, and this was my first year attending as a vegetarian.  My concerns turned out to be unfounded.  Most of the things I look forward to don't actually contain animals.

Cheese Curds
Of course.  The really good ones are at a place just called Cheese Curds, located on the east side of Underwood St. between Murphy Ave. & Lee Ave.  They even serve them with a marinara sauce.

Wine Country Mushrooms
These were new last year, and not back this year.  They were great though.  RIP

1919 Rootbear Float
They use great rootbeer, but cheap ice cream.  This is not new, but one of my yearly staples.  I think I'll just get the rootbeer next year, and save room for the unique stuff.  I guess my tastes are evolving.

Deep Fried Candybar
They take a Mars candybar, dip it in mini donut batter, deep fry it, and roll it in powdered sugar.  It's health food, if you think about it.  They do the same with Oreo cookies, but try to do both in an hour.  I dare you.  This is probably my favorite thing to eat at the state fair.

Sweet Martha's Cookies
No secret here.  They have three locations, and a line at all three.  I recommend getting a bucket to go to save room.

I had much more, of course.  Those were this year's highlights.  Then I got sick.  I guess I'm not as young as I used to be.
