The Great Yorkshire Show is renowned for farming, animals and everything country - but it's also a food lover's paradise!

There's more food and drink items available to sample and purchase than would fit on even the largest of plates, so to save your legs (and to speed up your decisions) we've put together a selection of our favourites.

And if you're not down at the show, you can take this as a perfect opportunity for a taste bud tingling procrastination break before you turn back to that soggy sandwich in your lunchbox.

1. Cheese, Cheese, Cheese


Cheeses from all over the world. Somebody pass the crackers...

2. Cakes Bigger Than Your Face


Which, of course, is a measurement that is highly regarded. Especially if you have a large face.

3. Tasty Tipples For All Tastes


AND they do samples so you can try before you buy... WINNER.

4. Use Your Nut And Taste Some Nuts


NUTS and lots of them. Flavours galore and you have to use a scoop. It's like protein heavy pick-n-mix.



A Creme Egg... In a Cupcake... Now that is how you should eat yours!

6. Who Even Needs Wimbledon?


Just don't help yourself to cream from one of the cows...

7. Smoke Me A Kipper, I'll Be Back For Breakfast


Niche headline reference, niche taste, nice fish.

8. Anyone For Sausage?


Spanish Chorizo that's more Settle than Seville.

9. Check Out These Baps...


How could you say no to these rolls?

10. ..............................can't talk..............chocolate..............
