WEST ALLIS — The 2018 Wisconsin State Fair starts Thursday, Aug. 2, and officials with the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association are alerting cranberry lovers to a brand new food item that will be featured at the fair.
In partnership with O&H Danish Bakery, WSCGA will offer the” Cran-noli” at its booth in the Wisconsin Products Pavilion.
According to a news release from the WSCGA, the tasty treat features a chewy granola cranberry cookie outer shell wrapped like a cannoli around a fruity cranberry cream filling — dipped in dark chocolate.
