Food is all the buzz at the Pumpkin Show booth, especially when it comes to the wide variety of pumpkin foods that are available. Many of you have told us what your favorite pumpkin foods at the Circleville Pumpkin Show are – but now it is our turn. We here at Dimple Times, just like you guys, have our favorites… and we’ve decided to share that with you.
The World Famous DECA Pumpkin Burger – The Circleville Band Boosters
A bit of a sweet flavor, with a pumpkin taste mixed with the texture of a sloppy Joe – and you’ve got yourself a delicious pumpkin burger. This delicious, meaty sandwich has the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor and is served hot and fresh. The cool thing about purchasing from the bands’ booth is that the proceeds go to the bands’ funds.
Pumpkin Pizza – Heritage Church of the Nazarene
Don’t knock it until you try it. Pumpkin Pizza is just as it sounds – cheese and pumpkin served on delicious pizza crust. It is the right amount of sweet with the perfect amount of pumpkin spice. The perfect blend and medley of texture and flavor, it makes a great choice for dessert or dinner.
Pumpkin Buckeye Bark – Heritage Church of the Nazarene
Have you ever had pumpkin peanut butter? If not, the Pumpkin Buckeye Bark allows you to try peanut butter, pumpkin, and chocolate all mixed together and offered as a nice sized piece of bark. While sweet, it wasn’t too overbearing – the perfect balance of flavors. The pumpkin peanut butter side is a soft, creamy texture that melds well with the smooth and tasty side of the chocolate.
Pumpkin Chili – Circleville Sunrise Rotary
Acknowledging that it is pumpkin chili, it’s obvious that there is a bit of sweetness to it – with your traditional chili texture and style. Meat and beans allow for the chili to be loaded with flavor, and the pumpkin taste just adds to it. The chili can be eaten as is or can be paired with some cornbread or crackers.
Pumpkin Chili Dog – Statesmen Eats
The good old chili dog has now been upgraded with some good pumpkin flavor. One all-beef hot dog is topped with a generous amount of pumpkin chili, a sweet mix on top of a dog that is placed between a fluffy hot dog bun. Keep the chili dog as is, or opt to have it topped with cheese, onions and even sauerkraut.
Pumpkin Brownie – Elegant Eats Catering
You can’t attend the Pumpkin Show without having at least one of these delicious brownies. Perfectly moist, super sweet and exploding with pumpkin flavor. This brownie will remind you a bit of a decent-sized pumpkin roll slice. A generous amount of icing on top brings the whole thing together – and is the perfect choice if you’re looking for that something sweet.
