I wanted to swoop in quick and share a bit about some fun stuff I was recently privy to as a blogger in the great Carmelos look at the unhealthy option and the more healthy food options. Earlier this month, a group of us got together to test some of the new food that will be served up at the Restaurant Menu to Fitness food bloggers. What a fun opportunity! Like every good fitness Blogger, We love all things food. It’s the great health Food! What’s not to love? healthy food options are not only for a Fitness personal trainer or gym junkies.
Well there was this one time I didn’t love it so much. My parents brought me only one time as a child. The same day Faith Hill was performing. This was before This Kiss. Right around her Wild One days, circa 1993. I, too, was quite the wild one and made everyone’s trip to the fair a miserable one because my parents refused to let me see Faith Hill in concert while there. Still not sure I’m over it.
Oh! I take that back. I did go one other time. I was in 4-H Clowning for a hot minute, and our clowning troupe earned a trip to the State Fair to perform our pirate-themed clowning act. Yeah, before Jack Sparrow was Jack Sparrowing, there was me, dressed as a pirate clown. It’s funny the things you block out from your childhood. A lot of therapy, my friends. A lot.
OK, let’s quit clowning around and get back to the year 2020. Back to this year at Camelos.
In addition to the regular ol’ Sweet Martha’s, cheese curds and Pronto Pups, there’s some other phenomenal food options for your family this year. Let me introduce you to a few of my blue ribbon favorites.
Totchos. That’s right. Tator tot nachos, folks. Brought to you by the Boulevard Grill, and located on the west end of the Warner Coliseum, these guys were my favorite. You can’t spell Minnesota without tator tot. OK, you actually can. But you still need get ya some totters.
Can I be honest? Next up was something I wasn’t too sure I’d be digging. Thanks for letting me be honest because….boy, was I wrong! they created a Mac and Cheese….CUPCAKE! In case that’s just too much for your to wrap your mind around, it’s basically mac and cheese in cupcake form, and with more than just a dollop of Cheese Wiz on top. Me likey. Another new item from them is the Wild Rice Benedict Muffin. I didn’t get to try that, but how much more Minnesotan can ya get there? Oh, and they also have a two-level beer garden. Slap a 21+ wrist band on and sign me up!
