Valleyfair is OPEN for the 2022 season and it’s going to be a fun season!
My family and I visited Valleyfair on opening weekend and enjoyed a special preview of some new foods they’re offering this summer.
We had a GREAT day sampling new foods and enjoying the rides, entertainment, games and more.
Their new foods include:
🍔 Juicy Lucy
-a Minnesota burger classic with cheese in the middle
Find this at the Northwoods Grill.
🍓 Strawberry Brownie on a Stick
-ooey gooey yummy sweet
🎂 Birthday Cake Popcorn
-sweet and crunchy
🥔 Country Boil on a Stick
-a hearty row of shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob
🍪 Deep Fried Oreos
-I had 3! They were amazing! Just the right balance of fried and sweet…
All were so good…especially the deep fried oreos 🙂
There are also new drinks including “Pixie Potion” and “Carnivale Cocktail” plus a “Blood Bag” alcoholic beverage. Watch for these during their Halloween event!
Watch my Instagram video showing all these foods!!!!
