New Foods: Pina- A lot- Tas and State Fair Edible Cola

10_12 New foods 1
Pina- A lot-Tas is a filled with juicy slices of fresh pineapples that are soaked in a sweet rum before being dipped in a blend of panko and coconut flakes. The slices are then artfully deep fried, topped with whipped cream and a juicy maraschino cherry and then drizzled with a delightful cherry syrup. This fun spin on the pina-colada will take your taste buds on a tropical holiday and leave them watering for more at the Ranchero Norteno.
State Fair Edible Cola is a healthier and delicious soft drink reminiscent of the telltale flavors of the State Fair: cotton candy & candy apple. These organically sweetened sodas are sure to please even more as they are served in, for the first time ever at a State Fair, flavored edible cups. Imagine a disposable cup that you can actually eat instead of throwing it away! After gulping down a refreshing soft drink, enjoy the edible cup and relax over at Trio on the Green.
