Checking out tasty treats at The Big E


Every year, The Big E is the pinnacle of fair food in New England.

On Wednesday, News 8’s Suzie Hunter traveled to the event to find out just how they’re going to top last year’s foods.

Bud & Burger Pub has created 10 gourmet sliders, including one with pb&j.

“It’s sweet, it’s savory…Who doesn’t like peanut butter, you know?” Mick Corduff of Bud & Burger Pub said.

Wurst Haus is serving up sweet and savory too.

“This is the Messy Magnus. Apple fritter sandwich with pulled pork and Kansas City barbecue sauce,” Zachary Shuman with Wurst Haus explained. “It’s gonna make a mess.”

Sharable taco bites are also debuting this year.

V-One Vodka is serving their take on a trendy drink: The frozen martini. It’s a rosé slushie with vodka and white cranberry juice.

“Now on a summer day like this when it’s 90 plus, it’s very refreshing,” Paul Kozub said.

The Big E kicks off Sept. 14 in West Springfield, Mass.
