2018 Fairly Unbalanced New Foods and Beverages List:

However, the novelty and innovation makes for intrigue as vendors battle each other for just a portion of the Fairgoers’ funds in a crowded field. This list covers all this year’s newest offerings, including descriptions, locations and availability; prices will be made available once the Fair begins on August 23rd.
