It's the most wonderful day of the year — the day the Calgary Stampede announces their lineup of midway foods expected to debut at this year's festival.
Calgarians wait in anticipation each spring to see what type of deep-fried goodness they'll be able to cram down their gullet come July, and this year's 32 new items do not disappoint.
From the delicious, to the disgusting, to the truly bizarre, there's something to suit every taste. The important thing to remember is that it's carnival food, it's supposed to be terrible for you and it's best consumed after a few beers, when your conscience has been silenced buy the alcohol.

Among the items we're excited to try are the red velvet cupcakes (yum), deep fried Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (OMG, yum) and the Polish Poutine (yum to the millionth degree.)
Foods we'll probably avoid are the deep fried donut bacon burger (why?), the bacon-wrapped pork belly (we're trying to get through Stampede without a heart attack, thanks), and scorpion pizza (seriously?)
Which food are you most looking forward to trying? Are there any that look really repulsive to you? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
