This Saturday, March 28 marks the return of Knott’s Berry Farm’s Boysenberry Festival and the start of a limited, 16-day window for California residents and tourists alike to try dozens of limited-time boysenberry items. And for those unfamiliar with the theme-park backstory, the Knott family is famous for its fried chicken and its commercial harvesting of the boysenberry – a cross between a loganberry, raspberry and blackberry.
But it’s about to be more famous for it’s Funnel-Cake-Batter-Fried Cinnamon Roll Topped With Boysenberry Frosting, AKA The Fun Bun. You read that correctly. In addition to the custom berry dishes ideated by the Food and Beverage team, Knott’s also found a way to work with ICEE, Coke and Starbucks to be able to serve Boysenberry ICEEs and Frappuccinos.
Some of the standouts outside of the ridiculousness that is the Fun Bun include the Boyseberry Dessert Flautas from Ghost Town Grub, Boysenberry Beer and Cider from Calico Saloon, Boysenberry BBQ Ribs at Fireman’s BBQ, Deep Fried Alligator with Boysenberry Aioli at Calico Fry and the Boysenberry Wings from Sutters Grill Stand. And if you’re still breathing after inhaling the Fun Bun and can fit something else sweet in your stomach, we recommend the Boysenberry Supreme from Sutters Grill: vanilla cake pieces, frozen boysenberries, vanilla soft serve and whipped cream. A majority of the BB items are scattered throughout Ghost Town and Calico Square, so go nuts.
The Boysenberry Festival will be inside Knotts Berry Farm from March 28-April 12 in Buena Park, CA.
