Deep fried delights are a staple at The Big E, and each year fairgoers come from all over to drop the diet for a day or two and indulge in fairtime favorites. To kick off the Fair with new delicious delicacies, the media was invited to have a taste, and all of our guests were very pleased.
If you love The Big E’s Craz-E Burger as much as we do, you won’t be able to resist the Craz-E Breakfast Sandwich. Like our famous burger, our new addition to the breakfast menu replaces bread with a glazed donut. But instead of a burger, fairgoers will enjoy the combination of egg and cheese and choice of sausage or bacon. One of our special guests described the sandwich with bacon as “ridiculously good.” Find the Craz-E Breakfast Sandwich at the Big EZ Café.
If breakfast food isn’t your cup of tea, The Big E is introducing new desserts. Described by one of our guests as the “most delicious ice cream alternative imaginable,” the new Baconana is an ice-cold, frozen banana covered in chocolate and sprinkled with real bacon. Your taste buds will be zapped with a salty surprise at the end of each bite, perfecting the perfect balance of salty and sweet. Find this new fruity favorite at the Veggie Patch on Commonwealth Ave.
The Big E’s tradition of deep frying unusual foods like Kool-Aid and jelly beans continues with the introduction of their new Deep Fried Strawberry Shortcake. These vendors are experts at what they do, and while you might expect the shortcake to dissolve the second you bite into it, these chefs have perfected the recipe by covering the berry-filled dough with a won ton wrapper. The shortcake comes prepared with powdered sugar and chocolate sauce or strawberries and whipped cream. Visit the Coffee Break to try this new fair addition.
The Fair will also feature other savory treats guaranteed to satisfy any palate. The Moolicious Pie Shack will feature Peach, Blueberry, Apple, Pumpkin, Pumpkin Turtle and Pecan pies, which will be served a la mode. Also available are Moo-Nuts, a delectable donut stuffed with soft serve ice cream and a variety of toppings.
Don’t forget about classic BBQ style lunches. The Ultimate BBQ has a new lunchtime addition with its Three Pigs in a Bun. Pork-lovers will want to try this 6-inch grinder roll filled with grilled pork sausage, bacon and pulled pork. The Big E is your last chance of the season to enjoy corn on the cob. Choose a flavored butter at Meester Mike’s Corn on New England Avenue.
The New England Craft Beer Pub is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy an ice cold beer made in local breweries across New England. Pair your favorite local brew with classic and upscale pub food such as our lobster mac and cheese and Reuben sandwich.
Each year The Big E celebrates its love for food with fairgoers from all over New England. We can’t wait to see what you think about our new additions. We know you won’t be disappointed.
