We don’t really go to the fair for the fried-food-on-a-stick like most Minnesotans, so finding Famous Dave’s with their trusted menu items near the grandstand was a real treat. Instead of corn bread muffins, they serve squares of corn bread, and the menu is smaller than usual, but it’s still the same great Famous Dave’s food.
The other treat at the fair Famous Dave’s is perhaps the strangest-sounding but best-tasting fair food I’ve encountered: Pig Lickers, which are pieces of bacon covered with chocolate. It’s a strange yet sensational combination of salty and sweet, and it’s good bacon dipped in really good chocolate.
I couldn’t polish off the whole order by myself, so I shared with some deserving-looking FFA students at the next table.
If you go to the Minnesota State Fair, Pig Lickers at Famous Dave’s should definitely be on your to-taste list.
