Sweet Corn

One of my earliest memories of the State Fair is this Roasted Sweet Corn stand run by the New Berlin Lions Club. Stand in line, buy your ticket at the cage, trade that for an ear of delicious corn dipped in melted butter. Add some salt and nibble your way to food nirvana. Over the 11 days of the fair, they use 100,000 ears of corn, 2,000 pounds of butter, and what must be a million napkins. For $3 per ear, it's one of the best food deals at the fair.
