Yesterday the CNE sent us a press release of some of the new foods slated to be on this summer's menu. Among the offerings the nutella fries and spring rolls stood out, but after a bit more digging we were able to discover some additional outrageous foods that will be available this August that weren't mentioned in the initial release.
Here are five outrageous, gut-busting foods to try at the CNE this summer.
The bacon and peanut butter milkshake
Bacon Nation, the outfit that brought deep fried bacon covered hot dogs and other bacon surprises to the CNE last year is back in 2013 with this ultimate, fattening summer treat. And if a bacon drink isn't filling enough, Bacon Nation also promised to be selling something called The Canuck (aka The Pig Mac) which is a burger featuring a patty made with ground bacon.
The spice cream cone
Just because bacon never goes out of style, ice cream vendor Just Cone It will be aiming to top last year's dirty bacon cone with something they're calling a spice cream cone. Move over Ed's Real Scoop. This is the ice cream treat to end all ice cream treats. It starts with a specialty hot baked cone which is then smothered with nutella, filled with vanilla soft serve ice cream and topped with spicy chili flakes and loads of crispy bacon of course.
The Epic Burger
This burger promises to be so epic the details of it are still tightly under wraps even the staff at the CNE aren't in the know. What we do know is that the burger is the latest offering from the same outfit that brought us the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger back in 2011.
As we mentioned earlier today, nutella promises to be a big theme this year with at least two vendors prominently featuring everyone's favourite hazelnut spread. Along with the aforementioned nutella spring rolls and fries, expect nutella ravioli, deep fried nutella banana, nutella-strawberry grilled cheese and nutella wontons.
Pulled pork in things it shouldn't be in
Last but not least, pork fans should be pleased to know that bacon won't be the only swine food offering at the CNE this year. Pulled pork will be back in a big way thanks to return vendor Pull'd. Last year you might remember they served up the oh-so-indulgent red velvet pancakes layered with pulled pork. This year they're promising plenty of menu additions so stay tuned until August when they have the full reveal.
Which new food offering at the CNE are you most excited or repulsed about this year?
