Weird park food names

Monday, January 26, 2004 3:09 PM
What park food items have you encountered that has an unusual name. I will start this discussion with the Puyallup Fairs' "Krusty Pups".I guess these were corn dogs ,but with a name like that,I wasn't going to try one.

When I first went to Cedar Point in 2000, I thought that Eliphant Ears was a weird name for fried dough, but I think it may be common out west, im not really sure.

Okay...I'll bite. (ha!)

In our Kringle's Kafe, we have "Elf Burgers." Sick sense of humor, but I've always thought that was a funny name for a kid-size hamburger.

Other than that, our food names are pretty straight forward.

"Tentacles from Tentacle Stand 3 are a really good value!"

I bet funnel cake might sound weird if you don't know how they're made.

Elephant ears are common here in WV, I've been eating them all my life, along with funnel cakes, which are fun to watch them make.

I'm still weirded out by fried Twinkies and Oreos, though I've yet to expierence either(that will change this year).

All I know is that when I was little I thought that Elephant Ears were REALLY made out of an elephants ears!

My mom never knew why I would always start crying whenever we walked past one of those stands or someone eating one. She couldn't figure it out, then one day she asked me and I told her that I think those people are mean for eating those poor elephants ears because now they can't hear anything!

My mom busted out laughing at me and of course explained to me that they weren't real elephants ears. My 4 year old self felt much better, but still to this day I can't stand the thought of eating one! *** Edited 1/26/2004 8:32:47 PM UTC by Sarah Jackson***

Pronto Pups at Camden Park. And don't forget the Floating Burgers. Well, that is what I call 'em. :-D

kpjb's avatar Kennywood sold fried dough as "Frying Saucers" when Lost Kennywood first opened.

Also, we sell these things called "hamburgers" which actually have no ham in them at all.

Hamburgers... named after the city in Germany where they were popularized, which is Hamburg.

How about Funnel cakes? I mean, come on! haha.

I personally liked the "Mickey Mousse" desert that I had this summer.

(Yes, that is sarcastic if you didn't pick it up)

Nothing is as to-the-point as Cheese-on-a-stick. I really want to hear someone ask what that is.

The only thing that tops a funnel cake for me are Fried Bats. Nothing like funnel cake batter stuffed with an Oreo. More parks should have them.

A little off topic but still on topic if ya know what I mean. Ok, at sfmm there is a restraunt called the 'chicken plantation'. I always thought that that might be offensive to some people. What do other people think?
Monday, January 26, 2004 9:01 PM
Well, Plantation doesn't always mean there are slaves involved.


  1. An area under cultivation.
  2. A group of cultivated trees or plants.
  3. A large estate or farm on which crops are raised, often by resident workers.
  4. A newly established settlement; a colony

I find Gobblin Burgers at Holiday World a little weird.

I've never been able to figure out if it's "Oh, look at me! I'm gobblin' these burgers up!" or if it's "Mmmm... this burger made of gobblin is really tasty!"
