State Fair Snack Canned By Environmental Extremist
The iconic Minnesota State Fair will be down one food offering this summer, after an environmental extremist started a petition to ban a delicious donut snack.
A moment of silence, College Republicans…
The Wingwalker Donut Flight snack was removed from the State Fair’s official new foods list after environmental extremist Jason Holtz learned how the donuts are served and started a change.org petition to stop it, reports Fox 9.
The donut flight was created by a vendor called The Hangar, and is comprised of donut holes served along side three syringes. Each syringe is loaded with a different flavor of filing to be drizzled atop the pastries. It is these plastic syringes which Holtz took issue with, according to Fox 9. It seems that like California’s straws, the donut flight’s syringes are made of a deadly toxin known as “plastic.”
Holtz explains that he has a history of going to odd lengths to reduce fair waste: “Personally, I do what I can. I carry a bag and I bring my own utensils, cloth napkins, a bowl and a glass Mason jar with a lid and everyone will put stuff in it for you. It sounds extreme but this planet is drowning in plastic,” he says, according to the Pioneer Press.
The Hangar replaced the Wing Walker Donut Flight with the Tailspin, a dish created by combining French-fried onions, coleslaw, hash brown waffles, barbecue sauce, pulled pork, elote, Oaxaca cheese and spices, according to Pioneer Press. Here at MNCRs, this nonsensical list of high calorie ingredients reminds us what we love about the State Fair— with or without strange environmental initiatives!
