If you’re planning to visit Playland this year, here’s a look some of the food options that are on site. I have included photos of the food vendor and menus wherever possible based on the opening day media event that I attended.
A Canadian favourite, these customizable, hand-stretched float-fried pastriesare served hot and can be topped with a range of candy toppings.
