INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 19, 2014) – We’re a month and a half away from the Indiana State Fair, and organizers have the tough task of coming up with a signature creation.

They held a contest yesterday, to find the “it” food item.

The theme of the contest is “reconstructed-deconstructed” in honor of the fair’s Year of the Coliseum celebration.

Entries range from the cheeseburger on a stick to funnel cake ice cream sandwiches to the mac daddy.

Alfie Ballew of Gobble Gobble Food Truck says: “My husband wanted to try something  different so we decided we try the pulled BBQ turkey and put that with the mac and cheese and see how that went. So far so good.”

Local celebrities got to taste test the entries.

Comments will then be posted online and you get the chance to vote on which item will be picked.
