Nutella CNE

Nutella fries and spring rolls coming to Toronto

For many Torontonians, food at the CNE is a bigger draw as any of the rides. For most of us, the exhibition is a venture in questionable calorie intake, and this year, there are many worthy new culprits to join the esteemed list of past foods, which include deep fried bacon hot dogs and doughnut cheeseburgers. Take, for example, Spread, a new member of the Food Building's roster. This stall takes Nutella, everyone's favourite hazelnut spread (which, I'm not ashamed to admit, even tastes phenomenal straight out of the jar) and morphs it into fries and spring rolls, among other treats.

Aside from that particular standout, you'll also find several new snack options, from Ku Khan, which serves grilled Mongolian snacks, to the promisingly-named Philthy Phil Philadelphia, which, obviously, serves Philly cheese steaks. Returning vendors range from Bacon Nation to Wild Child Kitchen to Far East Taco. And, of course, there will be food trucks There are plenty of sweets on offer too, of course, ensuring no one is left out of the binge fest that is the Canadian National Exhibition.

This year, the CNE will run from Aug. 16 until Sept. 2.
