Year of the pickle: here’s what’s on the menu at the 2019 CNE

Have a penchant for pickles? Let’s hope so.

They feature heavily on the menu at this year’s Canadian National Exhibition.

“We have pickle lemonade, we have pickle pizza … Pickle may be the theme this year,” said Zis Parras, the CNE’s product development director.

The fair, which kicks off on Friday, is famous for its creative food offerings.

Here’s a look at some other treats you can dive into.

Rainbow grilled cheese, anyone?

Pancho’s is bringing the unicorn food trend to a classic grilled cheese sandwich.

Spaghetti ice cream

Beyond Guacamole Burger

The year’s offerings wouldn’t be complete without a plant-based burger. This one is called the Beyond Guacamole Burger.

“It’s the highlight of our summer,” said Scott Dennis of CoCo’s Concessions, the vendor behind the meatless burger. “The CNE’s one of our best shows we do.”
