Foodie’s Choice Awards Winners
Sandia Pop


This year, the Alameda County Fair introduced the Foodie’s Choice Awards–a fun food competition voted on by YOU, the foodies! From June 14-June 30, foodies voted for their winners in the categories of “Crazy New Item” and “Red, White, & Blue” by scanning a QR on the food booth and taking a brief survey.

With so many outstanding contenders like bacon wrapped pizza on a stick, teriyaki super fries, and a red, white, and blue cake slice, it was hard to know which tantalizing item would end up on top.

Well, the foodies have spoken and the results are in! Here are the Top Winners of the Foodie’s Choice Awards!
