The Minnesota State Fair is my favorite food event of the year! Normally I go multiple times, but with my wedding in a couple months we were forced to try to jam pack everything into one power 4 hour visit this year, which meant that I had to forgo a few normal fair food staples to make room for more new foods.

I usually can’t decide what I love more about the Minnesota State Fair; people watching or the food.
With the last weekend of the fair starting today, I wanted to make sure you had my list of fair favorites and new must trys!
