New foods for Iowa State Fair unveiled

By Staff | Jul 9, 2010

DES MOINES (AP) – Organizers of the Iowa State Fair say this year’s fair edition will feature a number of new food items – including something called a “Twinkie log.”

As demonstrated at a preview Tuesday, the “Twinkie log” consists of a frozen Twinkie dipped in white chocolate and rolled in crushed cashews.

There also will be “Fair Squares” made of crisped rice cereal and marshmallow. They’ll be available for $2 in either peanut butter or plain flavors.

Other new fair foods will include turtle mousse bars, strawberry cream bars and chocolate covered tiramasu.

The 2010 fair runs from Aug. 12 to Aug. 22.
