Sneak-a-peek night and there are a ton of new foods out on the Stampede Midway.  We asked 4 of our celebrity judges to help us select the best new food outside.  John Gilchrist, food critic extraordinaire, Gord Gillies from Global TV, Heath Brown from CTV and Calgary’s own Beesley gamely sampled 10 new foods at Stampede, including cheese-on-a-stick and cheddar nuggets, deep fried dill pickles, Belgian waffles, taquitos, Japanese hot dogs, meat pies, chicken on a stick, chocolate-brownies-on-a-stick, and pulled pork parfait.  After intense deliberation, our judges have come up with the winner and 3 runners up for best new food of Stampede 2010.
