Like most fairs, the Canadian National Exhibition (or CNE for short) has its share of wacky food. This year, one vendor plans to sell a spaghetti and meatball hamburger. It willll have one patty made of deep-fried chopped spaghetti and cheese, along with a second made from a meatball mixture. Take a look at some of the other unusual treats that you can get now and have been offered in the past at fairs across North America.
It’s PB & J with a twist. This kabob at the Calgary Stampede is made from pieces of deep-fried peanut butter sandwich, as well as fried peanut butter cups.
This frozen popsicle served up at Edmonton’s K-Days festival is chock-full of mini-donuts.
At the Red River Ex in Winnipeg, one vendor wraps bacon around a corn cob, grills it, and then dips the entire thing in melted butter.
Found at Vancouver’s Pacific National Exhibition, this burger features a beef patty, cheese, and bacon served between two glazed donuts.
At the Kansas State Fair, this frozen treat is made from sour pickle juice.
In spite of its name, there’s no octopus in this snack. Found at the Iowa State Fair, an octo-dog is a hot dog that’s sliced so that it curls up like an octopus as it’s cooked.
