If you’ve never been to the Calgary Stampede, then you are missing out. Not be cause of the Chuckwagons or the rodeos, or rides that fall apart while people are on them.

No, for me, Stampede is about the food.

A lot of people think Stampede is all about the mini-donuts, but this year’s line-up food (yes, they send out a press release about food,) is really impressively yummy.

Some of the culinary highlights include:

Doughnut Burger – Glazed donut, hamburger and fixings, Glazed Donut.
Colossal Onion –One large onion which is cut to resemble a flower, breaded and deep fried.
Deep Fried Pop Tart- This one is self-explanatory.
Pork chop-on-a-stick– Ditto
10 different flavors of Poutine – BBQ chicken, Mexican, Italian, Greek, as a start.

The Calgary Stampede runs July 8-17, 2011.

  1. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  2. I think that everything wrote made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome post title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, however what if you added something to maybe grab people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.|
