Minnesota Wing King takes 1st place in Food Frenzy
On a beautiful first day of the North Dakota State Fair, 7 judges walked the Fairgrounds in search of the best new Fair food. The American Trust Center Food Frenzy competition highlights never-before-seen foods at the North Dakota State Fair, and competing vendors pit their delicacy against others across the Fairgrounds. The judges represented several media outlets, including KMOT-TV, KXMC-TV, The Northern Sentry, KWGO, and iHeart Media Minot, plus a few judges from American Trust Center. The competition was fierce, and the food delectable, but in the end, the scores were tallied and a winner was chosen.
Gaining the coveted blue ribbon and taking home first place was Minnesota Wing King, with their delicious Buffalo Chicken Gyro. In a close race for second place, The Original Minneapple Pie won over voters with their Ultimate Minneapple Pie. Third place was awarded to Quesadilla Junction for their Chicken & Bacon Ranch Quesadilla. The winners received huge ribbons, which are on display at their respective food booths. Make sure you try their award-winning recipies!
Be on the lookout for the People’s Choice ribbon, which will be awarded on Monday, July 23, to the food item that gets the most votes from you! The poll is open until 11:59pm on Sunday night and can be found on the North Dakota State Fair Facebook page. The State Fair continues through July 28.
