CALGARY - Hold onto your hearts — deep-fried butter will be one of the midway snacks for sale at this year's Calgary Stampede.

The annual rodeo and fair has released details of the foods that will be available for purchase by fair-goers beginning July 5.

Among the coronary-clogging treats will be deep-fried delicacies such as double bacon wrapped corndogs and deep-fried bubblegum.

Then there's the stuff on a stick — banana bacon ears, chip dogs, chocolate bacon apples, double smoked bacon-wrapped cheese perogies and even an egg roll on a stick.

If your taste tends toward the sweet, there will be chocolate-dipped jalapenos, chocolate cinnamon bear fudge and B-52 fudge, which takes Baileys, tops it with Grand Marnier and then smothers it with Kahlua.

James Radke, operations manager, says the spread is "not for the faint of heart."
