This cool article of the week I just found today via my Facebook news feed.
It’s from one of my favorite foodie sources, The Daily Meal.
Have you been to your state’s fair? Did you have any fun foods-you-only-get-at-the-fair-once-a-year?
I moved to Ohio from New York, and have had the pleasure of attending the Great New York State Fair twice. My favorite parts: the food, and the wine tent.
Yes, there’s a huge tent, full of local wineries. Samples. Yum. (#ILoveWine)
So the following article is for you state fair lovers.
It’s titled “America’s 50 Most Outrageously Insane State Fair Foods.”
There’s an article and a complete slideshow with pictures for you to browse through.
And here’s what I’d love to try on the list (without saying which state it’s from):
-Salad on a Stick: Salad that’s easy to eat and easily accessible? I’m in!
-Shrimp Corn Dog: It sounds like Fried Shrimp, except a corn dog instead of fried shrimp batter. YUM!
-Fried Pickles and Chocolate: The salty and sweet combo sounds intriguing, and the flavors likely balance each other out. That way, you can have your chocolate fix while having your fried savory fix. Mmm!
-Viking on a Stick: A DEEP FRIED MEATBALL. AMEN. 🙂
-Deep Fried S’mores: This sounds heavenly.
-Deep Fried Bubblegum: Well, it’s not actually bubblegum. But it sounds really tasty.
–Deep Fried Goo Goo’s: Never heard of these until I read this article…It’s a chocolatey cluster deep fried. Chocoholics, rejoice 🙂
-Hot Beef Sundae: I actually saw something similar to this at a fair near me recently (the picture is above). It sounds SO good: roast beef, mashed potatoes, cheese, cherry tomato.
–Deep Fried Cookie Dough on a Stick: Woah. I love deep fried Oreos, but this sounds like heaven too…. A fried ball of chocolate chip cookie. Wow.
–Spaghetti Ice Cream: I’ve seen this in Syracuse before at Peter’s Polar Parlor. It sounds fantastic: a whimsical ice cream sundae. Mmm.
-Fried Jelly Beans: It sounds like it would be extra sweet, but it also sounds like it would likely be fruity, crispy and delish.
-Do-e-Oreo: I want you to go to the article and read what this is. Sounds sweet tooth approved. Sign me up!
-Pancake Burger: Oh. My. Gosh. A huge fluffy pancake for a bun. Om. Nom. Nom.
