Chicken waffles on a stick coming to the CNE this year

For many who flock to the CNE year after year, the outrageous food proves to be the biggest draw. From cronut burgers to cocoa-infused fried chicken, the Ex has historically been chock-full of culinary monstrosities that shock even the most adventurous of eaters.

While the CNE will soon reveal its entire food lineup, we already learned that cake poutine will be one of the star attractions. Now we've gotten word of the newest deep-fried addition to the CNE's menu: chicken waffles on a stick.

Carnivals are typically filled with food on sticks. There's the obvious cotton candy, ice cream bars and corndogs, but recent years have brought us pop tarts, pizza and the perennial favourite, dill pickles.

How does one shove a stick into a plate of chicken and waffles? A CNE representative describes this newfangled treat as, "fried chicken blanketed in a fluffy waffle, on a stick. Topped with maple syrup." Think of it as a corndog, but swap the hotdog with fried chicken and replace the cornbread coating with waffle batter.

This sweet and savoury confection will set you back $8 and you'll be able to buy it at a booth near the press building.
