I went to Knott’s this past weekend to review some of the food at the Boysenberry Festival. I absolutely love Boysenberries, so this was a must do for me!
We got the tasting card which was 25$. With this, you can try 6 boysenberry related items within Ghost Town. They were located all over Ghost Town which does have a confusing layout, so it’s hard to find all 6 stands.
First off, we tried the Boysenberry Meatballs! These were extremely good! It was in Knott’s Boysenberry BBQ sauce!
After that we hit up the Boysenberry Wings! These were just as amazing as the meatballs!
Then we headed to the two stands down by Ghost Rider’s station. First of the 2 was the Boysenberry Short Ribs! We waited a while as the stand ran out of plates, but it was well worth it! This one was an appetizer size like the others. This was pretty much a whole meal! Just like the ones before it, just as spectacular!
At the edge of the park near the backlot was the Boysenberry Panna Cotta! It’s pretty much just yogurt, but it was pretty good. It did lack in flavor, but it was still pretty good. Just wished it had a stronger taste…
Then we headed to the Ghost Town Fries location to get our Alligator Bites! I actually didn’t know it was actual alligator until I tried it. I thought it was some sauce it was in called alligator or something. We don’t really get to eat real alligator here in Cali much, so it was an awesome surprise to me. This was the first time I’ve ever tried alligator and it’s actually pretty good! I know it’s a cliche thing to say, but it tastes like chicken. I thought noway it could be alligator! It did have more of a kick to it though that chicken doesn’t have. At this point though you may be wondering how does this fit with the Boysenberry Festival? Well it comes with boysenberry aioli. Overall, I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t my favorite.
At this point, we hit up everything except one. But because we were full already, we waited till we were leaving to get it.
So on our way out, we got the last item which was Boysenberry Dessert Flautas! They are pretty much like crapes, but were deep fried. They were filled with boysenberries and had even more boysenberries on top with powdered sugar. These were pretty good, but still not my favorite.
My favorites from the tasting card were:
