Ribfest 2022 - Nellita's Cocina, Holy O's, Mountain State Italian Ice

Shawnee Park recently played host to this year's Ribfest. Last year, I went the rib route. But this year, there were a few other vendors I was interested in checking out.

Nellita's Cocina - She had empanadas for sale: bbq chicken or pork. I went with the chicken, and it was delicious. Seriously good. The outside was crispy - but not oily - and the inside as moist and flavorful.

Next up is Mountain State Italian Ice. It's like a creamier version of shaved ice with a fruity flavor.

I went with cherry, and it was a biiiig serving. And perfect for a warm day.

Have you had Italian ice?

My last treat for the day was Holy O's. I had just missed out on their last pepperoni roll.

But I wasn't too disappointed to get donuts instead.

I went for six, topped with caramel. These mini donuts that are topped with something and eaten with a fork are trendy these days. I do like that they're a bit easier to eat, but I miss the slight crisp on the outside giving away to a fluffy interior. Still, can't go wrong with this sweet treat.
