Every year the Calgary Stampede has some pretty crazy food offerings.....and it seems each year attempts to outdo the previous year. Nothing is off limits when it comes to deep frying, from pickles, to ice cream, dorito chips and even plain butter! It's a good thing that it takes a lot of energy to wander the midway all day or throw your full weight into all the "YAHOO'S" you will find yourself yelling during the rodeo, because these foods do not come light on the calorie side!
But heck, you only live once, so you may as well try them all and keep your taste buds satisfied until next year!
1. Deep Fried Butter
The old adage that calories don't count during Stampede is put to the test with this treat. Cubes of butter are wrapped tightly in homemade pie crust before being deep fried to perfection, or so the Stampede claims! It is likely one of those true guilty pleasures in life.
2. Banana Bacon Ear
