5 tasty show foods to tempt your tastebuds

SHOW-TIME may be synonymous with the dagwood dog - but there's far more to the menu.

Veronica Mears from Gill's Partyland said the chips, pluto pups, hot dogs and bags of fairy floss were all selling well.

If those don't take your fancy, try these unusual treats:

1 Mary Macon's snacks made with cured lamb - a Fraser Coast delicacy.

2 Poffertjes - like tiny, fluffy Dutch pancakes, smothered in whipped cream.

3 Churros - a deep-fried pastry dipped in chocolate.

4 Potato slinkies - a modern favourite of coiled deep-fried potatoes on sticks, like a refined potato scallop.

5 Candied and savoury flavoured macadamia nuts - a perfect treat with local roots.
