Special to Sweet as Cotton Candy, Amanda Hernandez
Amanda Hernandez and her family participated in the Fun Biz food tasting at Cheyenne Frontier Days yesterday. Here are her story and photos.
Thank you Fun Biz for the opportunity to do a tasting yesterday 🤗 I’m absolutely into unique foods and treats. Especially when Cheyenne Frontier Days finally returns 😎🥰 It was sorely missed last year.
I shared a portion of everything, and it was amazing 🤩
The corn dog is a carnival must, but your play on corn dogs featuring a hot dog wrapped in a spiral cut potato was fun. The pickle chips are definitely how to get your salt fix, but it seemed to have a subtle kick to it as well 😍 The Shrimp Po’boy with Fruity Pebbles was my favorite and so not what I was expecting 🥰 Creamy, spicy, crunchy and the shrimp were perfect! A totally unexpected meal for carnival food 😍😎
The pulled pork and brisket sandwiches are very well done. The turkey leg was delicious. The kabobs were tasty and very large portions. And none of the meat was over done or dry.
Second favorite was the Donut Chicken Sandwich 😋 It was moist. It was seasoned. And the added sweetness of the donuts complimented the chicken so well. It’s like chicken and waffles, but better 🤩
And of course there was desert 😏 Funnel cake is a classic. And with so many options for toppings, there’s something for everyone. But now that people deep fry twinkies, they deep fry everything!! So bring on the Twinkie and the Oreo and the Snickers! Oreos are my favorite, and that held true here 🥰 Each one are a nice treat, but add in the fried factor, and you get a melt in your mouth experience. Warm+melted=yum 😝
Definitely can’t eat like this all the time. But when I do, I hope it’s as creative and delicious as today was.
Thank you again Alex for the Funbiz tasting experience 🥰 And thank you Karen for inviting us to participate.
