Topsfield Fair Eats

I'm heading to the fair this weekend (yay, farm animals!) and thought I'd check to see if there were any notable additions to the food options this year. Naturally a dino-sized turkey leg is on the agenda, as is a (shared) dog-bowl of fresh-fried potato chips. Ah, fair food! Last year I never found the fresh cider donut place -- not sure if it wasn't there or if we just walked around in circles. Is it there this year? Because that's *definitely* on the menu if it is.

I generally skip most of the food stalls scattered amongst the other vendors (the pizza, sausage and pepper, etc.) - they all look like standard (bad) fair food -- am I missing anything good?

I always try some of the church vendors, hoping to find some secret cache of country-cooking greatness, but it hasn't happened yet -- anything special to look for?

Depending on my appetite for gooey butter and brown sugar atop SWEET apples, I may hit the apple crisp folks, although I'm not sure it's worth the lines.

Anyway, I'd love to hear about anything great that folks have found this year. Thanks in advance.
