Are you an adventurous eater? If cotton candy and hot dogs are a little too tame for your palate, you will have a chance to treat yourself to something crazy and new at the 2018 Fair at the PNE in Vancouver.

This Saturday, August 18, 2018 The Fair at the PNE officially opens for another great year of rides, games, and -most importantly- food. This year will be a prime opportunity for foodies of all adventure levels. Below are just 5 crazy examples of some of the exciting (and wacky) food that will be available for purchase.

Starting from appetizing and moving right on to daring, the food at the PNE is definitely creative. There truly is something for everyone:

1. Wat a Melon

Perfect for a hot, sunny day, this dessert is an ideal treat for watermelon-lovers. For this inventive snack, you’ve got delicious, thirst-quenching watermelon flavoured ice cream, served between two slices of watermelon.

Available from the aptly named, “Drink a Fruit From the Fruit” vendor (#30 on the map), this is probably one of the more healthy options available at the PNE. Not a fan of watermelon? There’s also Charcoal Pineapple available – Black ice cream on top of a pineapple. Yum!

2. Kit Kat Fries

Potato fries are so 5 years ago. Now, it’s all about how crazy you can get with the deep fryer! This year, for those with a sweet tooth, Steve O’s Public House offers KitKat fries, dipped in a signature batter and deep fried to a soft, fluffy, and chocolatey perfection.

If you want even more crazy things to try, Steve O’s Public House (#23 on the map) also sells deep fried oreo churros, cookie dough, and for those looking for a healthier option… deep fried tequila flavored shots.

3. Garlic Vanilla Milkshake Burger

Huh? The title really says it all… Not sure what else you can expect with this burger that is “sweet, savory and delicious”. You’ll have to be the judge of that for yourself. The Garlic Vanilla Milkshake Burger is part of our new burger line-up presented by Gourmet Burgers (#2 on the map).

If a milkshake burger is a little too out there for you, there is also a must-try 3 sliders tasting option that includes kangaroo, alligator and ostrich (to name a few).

4. Smoking Charcoal Soft Serve

Charcoal is all the rage right now, and boasts a variety of proposed benefits, ranging from lowering cholesterol to whitening teeth and curing hangovers.

What other reason do you need to try the new charcoal soft serve cone? It’s good for you! The location of this soft serve isn’t revealed on the PNE Blog, so you’ll have to ask customer service to track it down. Adds to the mystery of the luxurious, grayish black cone!

5. Cricket Caramel Apple

Finally–saving the best for last–the Cricket Caramel Apple is sure to make a lasting memory, whether it’s a good or bad one will be based on your own personal preferences!

Sweet and salty with a crunch, the cricket caramel apples is rolled in salty, oven-roasted Entomo Farm crickets. They are the protein of the future, it might be time to get used to eating bugs!
