By Sunny Tsai SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) —The New York State Fair has just announced the 39 competitors for its food truck competition this summer. Twelve new trucks will also be competing at the end of the fair this September.
Owner of Skippy’s Soft Serve truck Gina Husted will be returning for another year of the competition. But this year, she will be introducing a new entree to the public.
“I try to do something that everyone will like and enjoy, like something different,” said Husted about deciding what recipe to create for the competition.
Each participating food truck is allowed to sell one entree for $3 to the attendees. The attendees will then vote for their favorite one, and the food trucks with the most votes win different awards.
This year, Gina Husted will also be one of the newcomers at the competition.
“The Baked Potato Express is something new we’re doing this year. We were just at the Taste of Syracuse, we’re new into the food truck rodeo this year,” Husted said.
Introducing her new food truck, she will be serving mac and cheese baked potatoes at the fair.
The Food Truck competition will take place September 1-2 at the end of the New York State Fair this year.
