Bacon covered in frosting and cereal and a Texas Pete glazed doughnut are among the new foods headed to the N.C. State Fair this year.

The fair released a list of items on Friday morning.

The offerings this year feature several hot and spicy options including Bubba’s Bacon’s Cheetos Jalapeno Bacon, which is a bacon-on-a-stick dipped in nacho cheese and rolled in hot Cheetos. S2 Concessions will also be getting spicy with Texas Pete Glazed Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

Bubba’s Bacon also boasts one of the more odd items on the new foods list - Unicorn Bacon. The vendor is taking their traditional bacon-on-a-stick and dripping it in frosting and Fruity Pebbles cereal.

A full list of what’s new:

Old North State Kitchen: Slow Smoked Bourbon Brown Sugar Rubbed Pork Loin - Whole pork loin slow smoked with hardwood rubbed with bourbon brown sugar, served a sliced “chop” with all natural juices. Old North State is also serving up scratch-made banana pudding with bourbon whipped cream topping.

The fair runs Oct. 11-21 at the N.C. State Fairgrounds.
