Welcome back to itslilgirlkeem!
Summer in Edmonton is always eventful, because there are festivals back to back! This blog will be about Klondike Days a.k.a. Kdays for short!
As a foodie, I obviously wanted to try as much food as I could at Kdays, but everyone knows that carnival food is NOT CHEAP. AT ALL. I wanted to try everything, but I had to be practical and just tried a few.
- Hawaiian Shaved Ice
This is a new food vendor at Kdays! It specializes in Hawaiian shaved ice and tropical drinks as well. I tried the “Over the rainbow” flavour and the whipped cream are the clouds! Inside the shaved ice is vanilla ice cream as well. I thought it would taste like a typical shaved ice, but the ice cream and whipped cream made it way better. Innovation at its finest! Haha.
2. The infamous turkey leg
What is a carnival without a turkey leg???? This is my first time trying a turkey leg! It was marinated with BBQ sauce and was super juicy and meaty, but quite overpriced in my opinion. Overall, I enjoyed it, but not sure if it’s worth $20 just for just one turkey leg. These carnivals really know how to take our money!!!!!
3. Them Hawt Dawgs
There a few hotdog joints here in Edmonton that are delicious! I personally love It’ Dog and Fat Franks, but there are so much more that I have yet to try. This is a food truck called Fhat Dawgs, and I tried their “Japadog”. It is a Japanese inspired hot dog with soy sauce, caramelized onions, mayo and seaweed. Sounds pretty simple, but tastes amazing. Another new favourite for me!
4. Coffee for dessert? Uh yes please.
So this is the Ogopogo concession and it’s been at K-days for a while now, but I didn’t notice it until this year! It’s fresh brewed French roast coffee infused into vanilla cake batter and paired with a topping of your choice, icing sugar and a smooth espresso glaze! I copied and pasted that description right from the K-days website. I don’t think that’s plagiarism cause I put it in my own words. LOL.
I choose the white mocha topping, because it sounded really good. It turned out to be super sweet, but still tasted amazing. I couldn’t finish it all myself cause it was way to sweet for one person. It was $10 with the iced cappuccino, but $8 just for the ogopogo! So it’s not too bad, although it’s still on the pricier side of things.
5. Watch me whip
I am not a huge fan of pineapple… unless it’s on pizza. I heard good things about pineapple whip, so I decided to give it a shot. Pretty worth if for $6! It was soft and not too sweet. It’s like eating clouds. I don’t know how to describe the whip, but it’s a nice soft that melts in your mouth. Haha.
6. I donut regret this
SO TELL ME WHAT IS A CARNIVAL WITHOUT MINI DONUTS? NUT A CARNIVAL LOL!
I ended the night with a bucket of mini donuts. Yep. That’s how you do it. Probably got cavities from all the sweets a tried, but it was all worth it!
I guess that concludes this food blog. I tried a few other things from K-days, but forgot to take pictures. These are the main food that I really enjoyed so I had to write about them. Hope you enjoyed reading! ❤
