What's cooking up at the Kansas State Fair?

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (KWCH) There's always something interesting to eat at the Kansas State Fair.

Earlier this week, we told you about a new fair food - the Mac Attack. It's a quarter pound cheeseburger between deep-fried, beer-battered macaroni and cheese buns - and don't forget the vegetables.

Another option we keep getting a lot of questions about is the "Cow Patty".

That's right. It's a special offer from Jackson Meats at its Barnyard Fry Shack.

The delicacy includes fries, smoked pork, cheese sauce and sour cream.

"We really didn't know what to expect this year with this being a new product, not something brand new to the fair, but we're pleased," said Jeni Ryan, with Jackson Meats.

Not new to the fair, common eats like Pronto Pups and Sno Cones.

Long-time fairgoers can take a trip down memory lane at the "Museum of Fair Foods and Competitive Fair Food Contests".

You'll find pictures and memorabilia from various vendors that have been at the fair over the years.

As you look at some of the items, you'll remember how things were in years past, like what the old dairy bar looked like.

Ninety-five percent of the items in the museum are loaned.

"People like to come in here and reminisce and see. I remember all these things, so I would encourage people to keep these things because as we try and collect items for the museum, so many things have been thrown away," says Charlotte Summers, the museum's curator.

The museum has been running at the fair for four years now.
