DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa State Fair has announced new food items that will be available this summer.
The Des Moines Register says fair organizers asked concessionaires to submit contest items that will cost $3 or less. The entries have been judged and finalists selected.
Fairgoers will be able to vote for their favorites. The winner will be announced during the Aug. 7-17 fair.
Among the finalists is the Brownie Blitz, which includes cream cheese, brownie bits, whipped cream, chocolate syrup and coconut. Caprese salad on a stick is another finalist. It's a skewer of cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, mozzarella cheese and balsamic vinaigrette.
Also on the list are Zombie Cones. The flavors include sour cherry, orange, lime and bubble gum, and the cones are topped with gummy eyeballs or sour worms.
