Warning: after eating a Winston’s Oreo in the heat I immediately needed to down about a liter of water, but this actually made me appreciate the flavor of the completely insane thing I just ate for a paycheque

There’s something nice and experientially self-contained about popping a little, single-bite sphere of sweetness into your mouth, and Taste of Edmonton is rife with these in our city of the beloved Talus Dome. I knew I had an easy ringer in here with the syrupy Khazana confectionery, but went wandering a bit to mix it up to find some perfect, dessert-island picks.

1. Latte Bittes with Espresso Caramel Sauce at Diavola Pizza (Booth 19, 2 tickets): My surprise favorite is this light little pair of caramel-soaked cinnamon cake balls, proving the lighter (shade, weight, etc.) the better on a scorching summer day. Bonus points for the tiny packaging — handy when you’re carrying around a few dishes at once for the social media photo.

2. Hot Gulab Jamun at Khazana (Booth 3, 2 tickets): No matter how much I want to wolf down at the buffet at Khazana (which means “treasure”), belly room is always saved for some Mango Cream and at least a few Gulab Jamun balls, basically syrup-soaked milk dumplings — on the midway here served sprinkled with coconut. Another item on the Khazana menu, a cold Mango Lassi (also two tickets) serves to balance out the temperature.

3. Winston’s Oreo (Truck E, 3 tickets): Now that we’re deep-frying everything on Earth including the planet itself, the idea of ​​boiling two Oreos in better is hardly a surprise — though I was skeptical of the texture before engaging . Turns out the entirety of an Oreo just melts into strangely pleasing, soft, chewy custard at a certain point, and let’s face it, no one who is buying this is here on the Paleo Diet. Warning: after eating this in the heat I immediately needed to down about a liter of water, but this actually made me appreciate the flavor of the completely insane thing I just ate for a paycheque.
