Unique Foods

Dairy Queen offered a product called Crunch Coat (Krunch Koat?) for their cones for years. There was even a little machine on the counter that sprinkled them automatically and evenly. I have a friend who runs a DQ, I'll check with him to see what's up with it these days for you, LostKause.

Some people think that steaming them is okay.

It's not. Fry 'em in butter, and lots of it.


Agree!

We like to fry them in butter and onions.

My wifes family likes theirs with a sauce they make out of butter and condensed milk.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar Fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches at Libertyland. Those things were awesome! I have the Elvis Cookbook but haven't attempted to make them myself yet. ;)

The Plymouth Rock Cafe at HW is unique in the fact that it's the only park where you can get a "real" Thanksgiving dinner that tastes just like mom's! It's under $10 and the portions and selections are worth every penny and then some!

Knoebels has some pretty awesome and unusual stuff as well. I just discovered frozen sweet tea! I don't believe I have had the alligator bites yet.

The choices of dips for Patch Fries at Kennywood. I never tried gravy or BBQ sauce with fries until I visited the park.

The corn on the cobb at Stricker's. It's some of the best damn corn I have had, plus it's probably the only park where you have to husk it yourself, and drench it in melted butter (although this year it was whipped butter.)

I heard Stricker's corn is outstanding too.

Is it sweet corn?

The sandwiches themselves were OK, but eating Elvis's sandwiches in Elvis's park and riding Elvis's coaster in Elvis's city...we certainly were treated - like the King himself! :)

Watch out for the gator bites - they bite back! Seriously, the crabcakes at Phoenix junction aren't THAT great...but I still have 'em every trip, because they sure do bring back fond memories (pork roll sandwiches work too, LOL). Fond memories are what KG is all about. The food certainly helps set the stage. :)

Should mention - DW and SDC are right up there too with the unique food selections.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar X Ride Op,

Yes, it's VERY sweet corn! It's HEAVEN!

Bill,

I agree! Elvis would of been proud of us eating his favorite sandwich and riding his favorite coaster! ;) I am sure he was there (in spirit) with us at the Pres Con a few years back. :) I miss the Pippin!

I also forgot to mention Pronto Pups at Camden Park. Ok, so they are corn dogs smothered in mustard, but the name is cool. ;) Actually I think they sold them under the same name at Libertyland as well.

Dollywood's food is just awesome all around, especially the gyros. :)

I remember those huge turkey legs at Disney World. :P

Nothing better than sweet corn.

Penne pasta with vodka cream sauce @ DelGrosso's.

Chicken and waffles @ Knoebels. A few weeks ago, they were also offering mango soft-serve. And I love the Tastykake ice cream flavors they have at the Old Mill. I've never seen them offered in any store.

Jim, I tried the Monte Cristo a few weeks ago, and it was pretty good. They serve it on cinnamon bread instead of sourdough, and it was "sandwich" meat. Not as good as you'll get in a restaurant. But it was served hot, and with a bag of chips for only $4.25. Definitely a step up from typical park food.

Kennywood has an double header cone. It's a rectangle of icecream dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts with a cherry on top in a cake cone thats not round-more bathtub shaped, It helps keep all the toppins from dripping all over.

Freeman's Texas BBQ at Hersheypark. Best park food I've had outside Knoebels.

And at Knoebels there's too much to list but my staple is the pizza. I know it's "only pizza" but it's hard to find GOOD pizza at a park anymore. Also as someone else said Mrs. T's perogies.

Can't recall seeing good perogies anywhere else, but Hersheypark has Mrs. T's mini perogies, I had them once and they were horrible, they tasted like they were fried in water, just dry and no flavor.
