Back by popular demand again in 2017, our Bacon Ice Cream
…candied & cooked bacon, in a delicious maple base. Our team of researchers has been on the hunt to find the perfect combination of sweet, savory and salty. After stumbling on the idea of combining our favorite foods, bacon and ice cream, we have spent months perfecting the recipe. Our deliciously smooth ice cream, with a touch of maple flavor, is perfectly blended with cooked and candied bacon and served in a waffle bowl. You can find bacon ice cream at the Rainbow Ice Cream stands located near the entrance to the Midway, on the west side of Kiddie Land, at the intersection of Dan Patch and Underwood and underneath the Grandstand Ramp.
