Can you guess the fair's 2015 New Food winner? Hint: there's bacon

Posted: Updated:

And the winner is... The Ultimate Bacon Brisket Bomb.

The new treat won the New Food Contest at the Iowa State Fair this year.

The bacon-wrapped, food-on-a-stick beat Corn in a Cup and the Toasted Coconut Caramel Cluster, getting 117 votes in all.

Fair officials say the champion treat is just $7 and features 8 oz. of fresh brisket trimmings infused with a light jalapeno cheese, blended with seasonings, and then wrapped in bacon. It is then smoked and lightly sauced in a homemade Sweet Chili BBQ Sauce. It is located at The Rib Shack in Walnut Square behind Anne & Bill Riley Stage.

15 new foods made their way to the fair this year, with 12 of them entered into the New Food Contest.

The state fair runs through Aug. 23. For more information, click here.
