EPIC: Minnesota State Fair Has Deep-Fried Breakfast On-a-Stick and Jello Salad


It’s that time of year again. Rusty roller coasters form under the blazing summer sun. Enormous SpongeBob plush dolls hang above rigged Ball & Basket! games. Everything from Twinkies to last night’s leftovers get deep-fried and sold for a Hamilton.

Yes, the food. Fairs are prime breeding grounds for “insane” eats that cater to our thrill-seeking arteries. The Minnesota State Fair has mastered this arena — slinging the usual funnel cakes and turkey legs alongside new, er, groundbreaking offerings.

Check ’em out:

Breakfast on a Stick


A pancake sandwich with American and Swiss cheese, a sausage patty, egg and Canadian bacon that gets dipped in sweet batter then deep-fried on a stick.



Beer Gelato


Creamy gelato blended with craft beer


Blue Cheese & Corn Fritz


Deep-fried corn fritters filled with blue cheese and served with chimichurri dipping.


Chicken in the Waffle


Crispy chicken smothered in sausage gravy and stuffed in a waffle cone.


Deep-Fried Lobster On-A-Stick
