With the Great Minnesota Get-Together less than 24 hours away, food is likely the first thing on fairgoers' minds.

From Chocolate Chili Ice Cream to Wine Glazed Deep Fried Meatloaf, there are 47 new food menu items to choose from at the Minnesota State Fair.

More heavy sandwiches for meat-lovers debut this year like the Big Andy, a quarter-pound burger topped with Philly steak, onions, peppers and cheese, found at Andy's Grille or the Three Little Pigs Torta--pork, ham and bacon on a toasted French bread roll--will be served at Manny's Tortas.

For those craving something sweet, sample a Candied Bacon Cannoli, Cocoa Cheese Bites, Fried Pickles 'n' Chocolate or a Funnel Cake Sundae.

Or for those looking to try something a little more unusual, try comet corn. The "futuristic" carmel corn made with liquid nitrogen is crispy, crunchy, sweet and salty.

St. Paul staple Mancini's Al Fresco is setting up shop at the fair this year, serving Cicchetti Cones, steak sandwiches, pig wings and garlic toast.
