the Calgary Stampede - food from heaven or from hell?Thursday, July 30, 2015
A thickly spread peanut butter and jelly sandwich stuffed with Reese's peanut butter cups, deep fried and served with a side of whipped cream, vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce.
Are you salivating?
2015 Calgary Stampede in Canada just a few weeks ago.
Most of the time I just wanted to buy everything for the amazing photo opportunities (well maybe that's a lie), but hubby kept me down to earth and instead we ordered with some restraint, in reality only sampling a small section of the deep-fried goodness there was on offer...
(Disclaimer - I may have tried everything in this list, but I definitely didn't finish everything!)
Makin' Maple Bacon fudge! This was a sugar and salt dream combo, that had real chewy bacon bits in every bite...
Red velvet chicken strips - fried chicken tenders that had been dipped in red velvet cake batter and then re-fried. These were surprisingly good!
Good ole' North American BBQ. This was mighty popular with the crowds...
And in case you're still hungry... a foot long hot dog! Don't worry, we opted for mini hot dogs instead.
Giant turkey legs as big as my head (seriously).
Dulce mini donut pop! Mini cinnamon donuts in a ice-cream popsicle :)
The one and only Colossal Onion... deep fried and served with a creamy salsa.
Considering everything we ate, I'm amazed that we didn't return from Canada double our normal sizes. (Travel tip - always pack your running shoes.) My belly may have grown a bit, but thankfully that's due to a different reason.
So, who's hungry??
