Camel on a Stick and So Forth

Ten vendors from Midtown Global Market will be among the thronging multitudes hawking food and more at this year’s Minnesota State Fair. Highlights: Jamal Hashi‘s camel on a stick and the potentially more palatable mango on a stick*, Italian soda and garlic cheese bread from Jakeeno’s, a Manny’s Tortas booth, and the Fair debut of Cafe Finspang.

*I’ve had camel. Tasted like camel-flavored chewing gum. Would hesitate before trying it again.

    I have also had camel, and did not find it to be much like chewing gum at all. I’d compare it to goat. Maybe there was a preparation issue when you had it?
