The remains of a deep friend cinnamon sugar pretzel, demolished by my assistant reviewers in the newsroom.One of my many jobs as Chief Wichita River Festival Reporter for the last 13 years (that’s not my official title, by the way, but it’s accurate) has been to sample and write about delicacies from the food court.
The job has been… greasy. And fattening. But also fun and educational. Through my reviewing, I’ve discovered some of my favorite River Festival treats, including deep fried pickle spears.
So far this year, I’ve reviewed the deep fried mozzarella stick, the nacholupa and one of the most obscene things I’ve ever purchased — a breaded, deep-fried footlong bratwurst. Today, I ventured back over to the sweaty food court to retrieve tomorrow’s subject, a deep fried cinnamon sugar pretzel (pictured above.) I asked my newsroom buddies to help me taste it, and, well, that’s all that’s left.
I’d love to have your help reviewing River Festival fare. If you had something you liked this weekend (or even something you didn’t like) share your review with me. Maybe I’ll even publish it in the paper. Follow the link to my mozzarella stick or nacholupa review above and copy the format. Don’t worry if you can’t remember the price. I have a guide at my desk and I can figure it out.
