In addition to chive fries, you’ll get Leinenkugel’s Battered Cheese Curds and hand-rolled Mozzarella Marinara. According to Saz’s website, more than 30,000 sampler platters are sold at Summerfest alone.

The confection features lime rum-flavored cake soaked in lime rum, flavored with simple syrup and mint cream cheese filling, battered and deep fried. It’s then topped with lime rum-flavored syrup and mint-flavored whipped cream.
