Get your tummies ready to rumble: The Calgary Stampede has just revealed the 40 insane new foods you’re going to want to track down on the Midway this year.

From unicorn eats to plenty of pickles, this year’s eats are once again pushing the boundaries of flavour, texture, and colour. Look for Mexican-style corn on the cob slathered in Flamin’ Cheeto dust, Cotton Candy spun with maple walnut, deep fried Jell-o, poutine loaded with clam chowder, and oh so very much more. Lots of deep fried stuff, and lots (and lots) of spice.
