And the winner is ... Dairy Goodness Bar reveals its State Fair special

Good news for fans of s'mores.
Publish date:

The people have spoken, and they are demanding s'more.

The popular Dairy Goodness Bar, located in the Dairy Building, has revealed its special flavor for this year's Minnesota State Fair.

Called "That's S'more Like It," it comprises Golden Grahams cereal, teeny marshmallows and chocolate syrup blended into vanilla ice cream or malt. 

It won a public vote ahead of two alternatives, the morning-themed "It's Breakfast, Dontcha Know?" that had flavors of mini-pancakes, bacon bits and maple syrup, and a spicy "Sweet Heat," which had flavors including mandarin oranges and jalapeño cheddar kettle chips.

Midwest Dairy's Minnesota State Fair project manager Alyssa Olson says the s'mores flavor will "take you away to weekends at the cabin, where the days start with sunshine and with s'mores by the campfire."

Previous Dairy Goodness Bar special flavors have included Salted Caramel Puff and "Pie 'n the Sky," which had spiced "airplane" cookies and lemon curd, topped with dark chocolate drizzle.
