No! It has been replaced by an urban food booth to promote diversity. Enjoy the carp on a stick.

Not big on pups or dogs. Pork chops (not the st fair variety) scotch eggs, lemonade from the stand in front of the car dealer next to the MPR booth.

Pronto pups are better because the breading is melty like a pastry and has more flavor

Corn dogs are made with cornmeal (like taking a bite of sand.
Pronto pups are made with a batter sort of like pancake batter except a little sweeter they are the best.

I grew up in Minn and have lived in Maryland for many years, a couple of years ago I did a taste test with friends and family (no one had heard of a pronto pup) The winner was Pronto Pup!!

It is just a flour/cornmeal ratio difference

There is a difference in the ingredients in the batter for the two but it would be false to say that Pronto Pups use flour and corn dogs use cornmeal. They both use cornmeal.

Corn dog. Pronto Pup.
Corn Dog. Pronto Pup.

Makes no difference to me.
The important thing is that they keep the queers out of the State Fair,
like they did last year.
One takes his kids to the State Fair for wholesome entertainment.
Not to see fudgepackers.

Pronto Pups are available everywhere, you can even make your own at home. They are for Portland Oregon See:

Problem - they don't have nutrition info nor an ingredients list.

You can get a corn dog anytime, but pronto pups are the real deal and a "must have" when it comes time for the fair !
WRONG!!! A Pronto Pup is made with Pancake batter, and corn dogs are used with traditional corn flour.

The more you know!!
