I truly love the Minnesota State Fair! I love the entertainment, the animals, and of course the food. Today, a friend and myself were on a mission to try as many new fair foods as we could...and throughout the remaining 11 days of the fair. And not for the typical nutritional bashing from nutritionists and health experts, but rather to savor and appreciate the yummy concoctions only found once a year. You see, even though we are both registered dietitians, we actually enjoy food and practice eating all foods in moderation. So, with that, here's what we tried today:
1) Sno ribbons
2) pretzel curds
3) Walleye Mac and cheese
4) Prime rib tacos
5) Lobster on a stick
6) Minnesota meatloaf on a stick
8) Frozen Grain Belt BLU
THE WINNER: a tie between meatloaf on a stick and frozen BLU. With that said, all were very tasty, and shareable portions.
Stay tuned for more
