It's that time of year again! The Minnesota State Fair just announced its new foods for 2015, and they're nuts.

2. Mac & Cheese Cupcake

Minnesota State Fair

Now THIS is what I think when I think "Fair food": unholy, insane-looking, delightful. A macaroni and cheese cupcake in breadcrumb crust, frosted with Cheez Whiz. Kill me, I'm not worthy.

3. Grandma Deb's Snicker Bar Salad

Minnesota State Fair

A version of the Minnesota classic, this Snickers salad consists of Snickers, Granny Smith apples, vanilla pudding, whipped cream, and caramel sauce. Like a more edible candied apple.

4. Sriracha Balls

Minnesota State Fair

Chicken- or cream-cheese-based balls stuffed with tomatoes, egg, and corn and then breaded in panko, deep-fried, and rolled in Sriracha sauce.

5. Chilled Bread Pudding

Minnesota State Fair

Bread pudding (in four flavors, including gluten-free) in the form of a sundae, served with a dunking sauce and choice of condiments.

7. Burger Dog

Minnesota State Fair

Described as a "ground blend of hamburger, hot dog, bacon, and a splash of jalapeño," the burger dog is the perfect food item for people who love hot dogs, but want even more animal miscellany mixed into them.

9. Cannoli

Minnesota State Fair

It's not the cannoli's first time ever at the fair (hello, Ole's Cannoli), but instead, its triumphant return. (If from a different vendor: Mancini's Al Fresco.)

14. Kimchi 'n' Curry Poutine

Minnesota State Fair

A variation on poutine (a classic among our neighbors to the north), this is braised pork and potatoes covered in curry gravy, cheddar cheese, kimchi, and a poached egg.

17. Wine-Fried Kalettes

Minnesota State Fair

It was only a matter of time before we brought kale to the Fair, dipped it in wine, and fried the shit out of it. Bless you, Minnesota.
