The Register's Brian Taylor Carlson breaks down all of this year's new fair foods and tells you which ones to try! Des Moines Register


As Iowans flock to the State Fair this August, many have at the top of their list the opportunity to try the new, off-the-wall concessions that can't be found anywhere else.

This year's best new menu items include a pot roast wrap and a barbecue/fried bread concoction, and the new food list features items called "Chicken Bacon Ranch Poutine" and "Mexi-Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake Chimi."

But at the Register, we don't think those foods are quite weird enough.

We've built the fair food generator below to concoct some truly odd combinations. Most of these dishes don't exist — yet — but you never know what could show up on next year's menu.
