Sure, people say they go to the Iowa State Fair for the music, exhibits and big boars, but food is probably the biggest draw. Here’s a look at some of the new items you’ll be able to try this year.

Don’t worry, some of them are available on sticks. The following are all $3 and guests will be able to vote for their favorites during the fair.

Caprese salad on a stick, a skewer of cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, mozzarella cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Available at all Salad Bowl locations.

Smoked brisket and bacon mac N cheese, topped with chunks of smoked brisket and apple wood smoked bacon and tossed in a three cheese sauce. Available at The Rib Shack.

The Three Buck Bowl, two crispy potato skins filled with scrambled eggs, fresh salsa and shredded cheddar cheese. Available at Steer N Stein on the Grand Concourse.

Funnel cake sticks, made with vanilla, chocolate or strawberry funnel cake batter, served on a stick and topped with icing. Available at Arnold’s Concessions on Rock Island Ave.

Other $3 options include Zombie Cones (sour cherry, blueberry, grape, orange, lime or bubble gum flavors and topped with a gummy eyeball or sour worm), jumbo toasted marshmallows on a stick available in vanilla bean, caramel, chocolate or maple bacon varieties and a red velvet flurry ice cream treat.
