Skeleton Cookie from the Mardi Gras Tribute Store

First up was the Skeleton Cookie from the Mardi Gras Tribute Store. This wasn’t just any cookie; it was a work of art! Shaped like a festive skeleton, it was as fun to look at as it was to eat. The sweet icing and soft, chewy texture made it a perfect start to our culinary journey.

Chicken and Andouille Jambalaya from the New Orleans Booth

Next, we headed to the New Orleans Booth for some authentic Chicken and Andouille Jambalaya. This dish was a flavorful mix of rice, andouille sausage, blackened chicken, peppers, and tomatoes. Each bite was packed with a spicy kick that warmed us up and had us feeling like we were right in the heart of New Orleans.

Sun and Moon Cake from the Mardi Gras Tribute Store

After the jambalaya, we were ready for something sweet, so we went back to the Mardi Gras Tribute Store for the Sun and Moon Cake. This cake was out of this world, with banana and caramel flavors, topped with chocolate planets. It was a deliciously sweet treat that looked as incredible as it tasted, with its space-themed design.

Roman Suppli from the Italy Booth

Our last stop took us to Italy for some Roman Suppli. These aren’t your average snacks; they’re risotto fritters filled with mozzarella and provolone cheese, fried to golden perfection, and served with vodka sauce and roasted red pepper aioli. The creamy cheese inside with the crispy outside, all dipped in that tangy sauce, was the perfect way to wrap up our day of delicious discoveries.
