What's missing at the Keystone Centre?

The 138th MB Summer Fair should be starting this week. Today we honour the foods that make the fair fantastic!

This is usually a pretty exciting week in Brandon.  The Keystone Centre grounds transform from concrete and trees to our Manitoba Summer Fair.  The rides are assembled and the smell of fair food starts to waft thru the air.  This would have been the 138th Manitoba Summer Fair, last year over 100,000 people went thru the gates.  Due to COVID-19 concerns, the fair this year has been cancelled.

My top 2 reasons for going to the fair are the rides and the food!  And although I can't recreate a ride, I can sure try my best to celebrate our fair food favourites.

Last year Ranker asked what our favourite fair foods were.  Here's the top 10:

10. Turkey Leg
9. Frito Pie
8. Deep Fried Mashed Potatoe
7. Fried Pickles
6. Fried Mac and Cheese
5. Deep Fried Cookie Dough
4. Fried Cheese Curds
3. Corn Dog
2. Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich
1. Funnel Cake

Who's missing from the top 10 that you expected to see?  Is there one fair food that you wish you could have this year?
