Visitors to the Calgary Stampede will have 32 new food options to tempt their palates this year as they roam the grounds.

Midway operations manager James Radke says food vendors have turned it up a notch for 2014, creating what he calls "some of the craziest and tastiest foods we've ever had."

Among the new menu options are bacon-wrapped corn on the cob, deep-fried donut bacon cheeseburgers, crocodile sliders and pizza topped with seasoned scorpions.

And for dessert, how about chocolate dipped cookie dough on a stick or deep fried peanut butter cups.

The award for Best New Food on the Midway will be unveiled at Sneak-a-Peek day on July 3.

The Calgary Stampede runs July 4–13.
