Here are 7 PNE foods worth trying.
Fair Sized Meatball
It may sound basic, but really, what is better than a giant Italian meatball the size of your face? It doesn’t hurt that this one-pound wonder is stuffed with heaps melted mozzarella cheese.
Cricket Caramel Apple
How could we not put the crickets on our list? Close your eyes and pretend they are peanuts…with legs. Protein and a satisfying sweet treat, best of both worlds people.
Sounds weird, tastes good. Collabs like this don’t always work, but the garlic ice cream soaks into the fresh beefy patty surprisingly nicely.
Deep Fried Burger
There’s nothing we’d rather eat after a terrifying roller coaster ride than this thing, the ultimate comfort food. This creation offers patrons a cheeseburger with all the fixings wrapped in a ‘bun’ and deep-fried giving us major Jamaican patty vibes.
Kit Kat Fries
Undoubtedly our favourite addition to the PNE food lineup this year. This deep-fried creation doesn’t just turn to ooey gooey chocolate mush, the Kit Kat holds its integrity and you still get the candy bar’s signature crunch.
Smoking Charcoal Ice Cream
Great for the ‘Gram and great for you too, charcoal ice cream is refreshing and also cleanses your body and soul (we think).
Boozy adult slushies? We’re in. This offering comes in several flavours including Pina Colada, Margarita, and Frosé to name a few.
