The Dairy Goodness Bar at the Minnesota State Fair has named three finalists for the 2018 Flavor of the Fair, and these malts/sundaes are the definition of #BoldNorth.
Here's a look at the three finalists.
It's Breakfast, Dontcha Know?
A breakfast malt (or vanilla sundae) that tastes like mini-pancakes, bacon bits and maple syrup. Each spoonful tastes different, so you might get some bacon in one bite followed by syrup or pancakes in the next.
This one is pretty wild, with the flavors of mandarin oranges and jalapeño cheddar kettle chips. It's crunchy and has a spicy kick from the jalapeño. The malt or vanilla ice cream helps mellow out the spice.
That's S'more Like It
Golden Grahams cereal, teeny marshmallows and chocolate syrup blended into vanilla ice cream or malt.
Voting runs through April 24, and you can cast your selection right here.
As of 2:30 p.m. Monday, the s'more option was in the lead.
The 2017 winner was called "Pie 'n the Sky," featuring spiced "airplane" cookies and lemon curd, topped with dark chocolate drizzle.
The Dairy Goodness Bar is in the Dairy Building, selling malts and ice cream for no more than $5 or $6. They also run the All-You-Can-Drink Milk Stand, which in 2016 served up more than 25,000 gallons of milk.
