What To Eat at the CNE

From bug dogs to deep-fried Doritos

If you’ve ever been in the CNE’s food building you know how outrageous some of the Ex’s meals can be. This year’s no exception — whether eating bugs strikes your fancy or you just want as much deep-fried goodness as possible, you’ll be able to find it at this year’s CNE.

Among the food building’s offerings include “Sugar Mountain,” a massive dessert item offered by Cake Shack that has pretty much all of your favourite sweets in one spot.

“Sugar Mountain is made up of a brownie square, which is a double-chocolate walnut brownie,” describes Sugar Shack manager Krystal. “And then you get a scoop of no-bake cheesecake right on top of that, drizzled with a bunch of jolly rancher bits. We got a sugar cone that has a mountain peak to it, a little donut cloud which is basically white chocolate with sprinkles. And then we finish it off with cotton candy fog, blue and pink, [and] some powdered sugar snow.”

If a sugar overload isn’t enough for you, Eative has a “Dragon’s Breath Crepe,” perfect for those currently on the Game of Thrones binge. With Dragon’s Breath Crepe, a crepe is dipped in liquid nitrogen, giving it that smokey effect. When you eat it, the nitrogen comes out of your nose when you breath out, hence the “dragon’s breath.”
