Iowa State Fair Announces 50 New Foods

The Iowa State Fair has released a list of 56 new foods available at this year's fair. That's 12 more than were introduced last year.

The fair is known for its fun, interesting, and delicious food. The fair announces new foods each year that range from sweet to salty, and strange to tasty.

The finalists for best new food are the Belly Up Burger, with ground pork topped with pulled pork, Canadian bacon, and coleslaw -- and Apple Egg Rolls, with apple filling, coated in cinnamon sugar and caramel dipping sauce.

You can vote for the third finalist from things like pickle poppers, the rube dog, brown sugar pork belly on a stick, and honey sriracha cheese sticks. You may cast your vote via the Iowa State Fair app through 10 a.m. Friday, July 20.

Fairgoers may then sample each of the top three finalists and cast your vote for the People's Choice Best New Food from Thursday, August 9 through Tuesday, August 14. The winner will be announced Wednesday, August 15 during the fair in Des Moines.

You may learn more about fair food at the Iowa State Fair website.
