Look out for this donut ice cream sandwich at the fair
A new food stand at the Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo will knock you out with its twist on two fair classics — ice cream and fried food.
“Doozies” has what it calls a donut ice cream sandwich — ice cream patties squeezed between two halves of a glazed donut.
Owners Tracy Pennington and Robyn Barness, both from Kennewick, are former restaurant owners and current foodies. They think donuts are the up-and-coming trendy dessert item.
They’ve got creations like the Zombie — Sour Patch ice cream topped with rainbow Nerds and green marshmallow cream.
Or the Baconator, which is caramel ice cream topped with bacon crumbles and a caramel drizzle.
They go for $8 each.
The fair has plenty of returners, too.
Piggly’s has its lobster fries, one-and-a-half-pound turkey legs and fried oysters between their barbecue stand and their seafood stand.
The Pasco-Kennewick Rotary Club has the classic elephant ears at their booth for $6.
