America’s Best Fair Food is on Strates showing up halfway
Winston-Salem, North Carolina (September 19, 2022) –It might not be the best halfway food, but “Pickle Pizza” will be one of the most unique foods set to debut at the Carolina Classic Fair. Pickle Pizza joins other classic and innovative Carnival treats in this year’s mid-season cooking lineup. The Carolina Classic Fair takes place in Winston-Salem from September 30 to October 9.
“It’s no surprise that Carolina Classic Fair customers love to eat! It’s one of the top reasons people attend this annual fall tradition,” said Marty Peñasz, director of marketing for Strates Shows, along with Funnel Cakes, Fried Oreos, and Foot Long. Corn Dog and Frosted Flakes Chicken, you should be eating pickle pizza in 2022.”
Pickle Pizza is a signature item designed by middle-of-the-road franchisees Doug and Laurie Dells…and yes “Deals” is really their last name! The pie is made with hand-crushed dough, special dill flavored sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese and dill seasoning. Thin layers of bright green pickles on top. Fairgo goers describe the taste as refreshing, sweet, and salty in one bite.
“What sets the Strates food halfway apart from the food is the quality of the ingredients used and the freshness of the end product that is presented to visitors to the show,” said Benyas. “Most of the menu items are made to order in front of the customer. In addition, due to the volume of products sold, new batches are always being produced.”
In addition to Pickle Pizza, this year’s fare bill ranges from time-honoured Carnival favorites to limited editions and new fried treats only found at the fair.
Dills has another popular ingredient – the taste of “breakfast” anytime halfway in the “Chicken On A Stick” franchise behind the runway. Dip the chicken fingers in the mixture, then wrap them in Frosted Flakes and put them in the pan. As Tony the Tiger says, “They’re awesome!”
