MN State Fair To-Go Boxes are Back with a Second “Blue Ribbon” Option
State Fair To Go is back this year and offering a second option for your own at-home experience.
Following last year's announcement from Minnesota State Fair organizers that the 2020 Great Minnesota Get Together would be cancelled due to COVID-19, a new business stepped forward to provide fair enthusiasts their own at-home experience. State Fair To Go offered an organized kit of food and treats from some favorite State Fair vendors shipped directly to buyer's homes. Kits included food from Ellsworth Cheese Curds, State Fair Mini Donuts, Sweet Martha's Cookies, Rosie's Fries, Axdahl's Fresh Corn on the Cob and Elliot's Up North Corn Dogs and cost $59.95 to feed up to five people. All items in the State Fair To Go kit came from Minnesota farms and small businesses.
Well, the State Fair may be a go for this year, but State Fair To Go is back as well with not one but two kit options. The Signature Box is nearly identical to last year's box, though does feed several more at 6-10. The box includes:
Sweet Martha's Chocolate Chip Cookies (2 dozen)

Pronto Pup - Make Your Own Pronto Pups (10)
Pronto Pup Company's signature mix, 10 hot dogs and skewers
