Earlier this week I attended the media preview for the upcoming Boysenberry Festival at Knott's Berry Farm and got all the yummy details to share with you! As you can see, the Boysenberry Festival begins this weekend on March 28th and runs through April 12th.
You ready? Okay, I'm warning you now, the pictures are pretty drool worthy.
I am going to start off with my favorites. This right here is the
Fish and Chips Sandwich with Boysenberry Tartar Sauce
. The fish was perfect, crispy and moist, the kettle cooked chips added a really nice texture and the Boysenberry Tartar sauce added a perfect amount of tart and sweet to the sandwich.
These Fried Cheese Curds with fries and Boysenberry Ketchup are AMAZING! Honestly, I had never had fried cheese curds before and didn't know what to expect, but OMG! They were kinda like the most moist cheese sticks, but better.
So one of the best things that Knott's Berry Farm has ever done was create their Boysenberry BBQ sauce (which you can now purchase by the bottle). The Chicken Wings and Ribs are so good and messy all drenched in the sauce. Yum! Literally finger-licking-face-wiping good!
There are also a ton of Boysenberry delights to keep an eye out for while at Knott's Berry Farm. The Boysenberry candies are so good, you have to try the big Boysenberry Chocolate bar, taffy, licorice, and gummy bears. Yes, I said Boysenberry gummy bears! Oh and don't forget to try the Boysenberry Honey, BBQ sauce and Jams they are such a treat. Of course, you can't forget the classic Boysenberry punch and Icee and the drink I am dying to try is the Boysenberry Latte, I have to try it next time I'm at Knott's.
Okay, let me get started on the desserts. Right here, you are looking at the Boysenberry Flautas. I think it is a fried crepe stuffed with Boysenberry, dusted with powdered sugar. Sounds good right? Okay, now get ready for the new best thing ever.
Meet The Fun Bun! The Fun Bun is probably one of the best park foods ever, a cinnamon roll, dipped and fried in funnel cake batter and topped with Boysenberry Cream Cheese. Yes, it is just a delicious as it sounds and when you cut into it for the first time, the amazing aroma that greets you is like nothing else. It is definitely something to share with the family, I mean unless you can handle massive desserts all by yourself, then go for it. The Fun Bun is so amazing, it even has it's own Twitter handle, go follow it
So, hurry up and get out there, because the Knott's Boysenberry Festival is short lived but all of the delicious Boysenberry foods are so so worth it.
