Here's what we thought of the food we tried this year over the span of two days:

Omelette: A staple. Best way to start the day from the Wisconsin Products Pavilion.

Sprecher Grape Sorbet: Good flavor and a great cooling-off treat.

Pizza Fries: Not so great. The biggest disappointment of 2013. Just a marinara sauce with some pepperoni and sausage thrown in. Didn't mesh well.

Beer-Battered Brat Bites on a Stick: The brats and the batter were cooked to perfection. Juicy and flavorful, though the beer batter flavor needed to be punched up.

Fudge Cake: An everyyear treat. Two layers of chocolate cake with ice cream between and topped with fudge and whipped cream.

Garbage Fries: So, so good. Basically nacho toppings piled on fries, and just as delicious.

Deep Fried Pepper Jack Mac and Cheese with Bacon on a Stick: We didn't get too much heat, but the flavor was spot on and the batter very good to hold it together.

Sil's Cinnamon Sugar Donuts with Vanilla Frosting Dipping Sauce: Amazing, and a great sugary treat.

Cheesy Mexican Tortilla Fries: Good, but essentially nachos but with fried flour tortillas instead of corn chips.
