Each year the Big E introduces a new food that has created a lot of buzz. In the last few years we have seen a few good ones that stuck around. The Craz-E-Burger in 2009, Fried peanut butter and jelly beans in 2010, Fried Kool-Aid in 2011 and the Fried lasagna that took the spotlight last year. They have all joined the ranks of the Chocolate-covered bacon strip, Cream puffs, Loaded baked potatoes and Turkey legs that are now Big E favorites. Although some of the fair's menu is not what your doctor ordered, it's the once-a-year indulgences that we enjoy.
There was a great picture gallery by Sarah Grant published in the Hartford Courant last week about eating your way around the Big E. If you’re heading out to the Big E and want to have an idea of what’s available to eat, check here
