Foods to debut at Iowa State Fair

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Iowa State Fair's first official treat and five new foods on a stick will make their debut this year.

Proceeds from the new "Fair Squares" will benefit charity. The squares are four ounces of crispy rice cereal and marshmallow in plain or peanut butter flavor.

The kid-friendly "Octodog" will also be served for the first time this year. The Octodog is a cooked hot dog that splits apart and is served on a straw.

Twinkie logs, which are frozen Twinkies dipped in white chocolate and rolled in cashews, will make their debut as well.

Other new frozen concoctions include tiramisu, turtle mousse and strawberry-cream flavored bars.

The fair will be held from August 12-22 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines.
