I keep going every year thinking that the world can't possibly raise the bar for "fried monstrosity" anymore than it already has. But then I hit the local county fair!

Ghastliest concoction? Well...



Yes, that's a jalapeno, stuffed with a Baby Ruth bar, which is then deep-fried and placed on a bed of churros.

THIS IS REAL!

...............

.....................

...........................and delicious.

I'm going to go to my shame corner now.

I am going to the KY state fair tonight for the first time in 10 years, to see Cinderella and Sebastian Bach of all things (it's a free show). Looking forward to some fried Twinkies.

I went to the Iowa State Fair for the first time. Quite the wonderful array of fried foods. The bacon on a stick dipped in chocolate felt like the sort of thing one should only ever eat on a fairground.

It's probably better, eaten at the fairgrounds. I had some chocolate covered bacon on our trip back from Canada, and it didn't sit well.

I'm a fried candy bar gal, myself. But our local fairs offer plenty of fried options:

It would be so awesome if it had the flavor of a hot chocolate, but frozen of course, and for the "hot" part they use jalapenos.

I am such a sucker for hot peppers and chocolate.

For once, us Canadians WIN THE DAY.

It's basically a frozen drink that has the taste of hot chocolate. Our "Second Cup" chains and I believe Starbucks sell them.

Tim Horton's also sell "Ice Caps" which are the same thing, but taste like cappuccino. Ice Caps are INSANELY popular.

These threads usually make me sad. I wish we had these foods up here :(

I'm not sure what voodoo magic they use, but it tastes just like hot cocoa with the consistency of a frozen margarita. It complimented my fried PB and banana sandwich perfectly and probably shaved years off my life.

The Huffington Post apparently has all your weird fair food needs. They detail concoctions that I never would have dreamed of. They show off...

1. Deep-fried Kool-Aid (San Diego)
2. Deep-fried Beer (Texas)
3. Kool-Aid Pickle (!)
4. Deep-fried Samoas
5. Fried Ice Cream Sandwich (a ball of deep-fried ice cream place atop a bacon cheeseburger) (Florida)
6. Spaghetti Sticks (spaghetti noodles, tomato sauce, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses inside pizza dough)
7. Spaghetti Ice Cream (gelato noodles, strawberry tomato sauce, shredded white chocolate cheese, chocolate "meatballs")
8. Fried Salsa (Texas)
9. Hot Beef Sundae (Tennessee)
10. Chicken-Fried Bacon (!!!) (Texas)
11. Pulled Pork Parfait (South Florida)
12. Deep-Fried Butter
13. Deep-Fried Bubblegum (!) (Marshmallow dipped in pink batter, fried and topped with blue icing and Chiclets) (Texas)
14. Deep-Fried Frito Pie (Texas)
15. Chocolate-covered Corn Dog (Orange County)

Well, lesson learned. If I wish to invoke a heart attack, I'll hit the Texas State Fair.

Seriously! Chicken-fried bacon!

My wife and I made the trek down to the Great New York State Fair (Syracuse, NY) on Saturday. It was the first State Fair for either one of us - and good lord I couldn't believe the deep fried concoctions you wacky Americans come up with.

I meant to post this sooner because lord knows it's been on my FACEBOOK since Monday - so let's get you caught up on a few of the things we saw (AND ATE!).



The infamous "Donut Dog" from Big Kahuna. Hot dog wrapped in bacon, served in a glazed donut, with a little extra glaze put on the wiener as TOPPING. The sweet and salty worked - not sure it was worth $5 though!



This clearly wasn't this guy's first trip to the State Fair!



But would I be able to resist?!?



That would be a no. This was probably my least favorite item of the day - they used a bitter dark chocolate for this. And while I recognize there's no way to do the bacon GREASY HOT - the cold bacon was definitely a let down.



Fried bubble gum? Cookie dough? ALLIGATOR EGGS? (Not pictured)



We got a combo platter with all of the above ... here's my wife sampling some of the cookie dough.



The "Gumballs" were just gum flavoured marshmallows. Alligator eggs were your standard deep fried Oreo - found at every 3rd food stand around the fair. Oreos won this round by a landslide.



Ehhhhh ... maybe next year assuming I am not diabetic after this trip.



Far too healthy - and thousands of fair-goers seemed to agree as I NEVER SAW A LINE for this booth.



Beer battered bacon-wrapped deep fried chicken. Shamefully I threw out the fries because I was full.



This was literally served as described. I'm pretty sure Taco Bell sells (sold?) this for under $2 - and far less messy!



I stick you not - this is a thing!



The deep fried PB&J is definitely on my To Eat list for next year - there were just too much for one day. I am not a shark. I am a man.



And as a man, I ATE THE SHARK. Pricey at $7, definitely had an aftertaste - but I think I'd repeat. They also had kangaroo, alligator, and ostrich on a stick!



Because, that's why.



I am pretty sure I could be DARED into this!



Butter sculptures!



I enjoyed the local pronounciation, going with Poo-teen. I didn't bother, there are poutine trucks on BOTH sides of my building at work.



A "Tator Twister" - you've probably seen Anthony Sullivan selling this on TV. My wife got "Fried Chicken" flavored. It tasted like the "Roasted Chicken" Lays chips they sell up here, kinda bland, a little chickeny. It could have used another minute in the fryer though, way too soft.



We stopped off briefly to see all the new Pitchmen PITCHING their WARES - and actually bought a couple of Christmas presents for family before we grabbed what would be our last food item of the day. This is a deep fried Lasagna, but with no noodles on the innards, it's essentially a calzone.



This sounds all kinds of dangerous.





We never found the infamous DEEP FRIED JELLYBEANS, try as we might.

I think cfgb may need to start any future fair food threads. He's clearly got a stronger stomach for this than any of us do.

As I have in the past, I encourage you to get the deep-fried Snickers bar next time, cfgb. Truly one of the greatest of fair-food concoctions, and a personal favorite.

We actually have a couple of local restaurants around here that serve the deep fried Mars and/or Snickers bar. We have yet to indulge, though we did splurge for a deep fried Twinkie on our honeymoon which was fantastic.

We'll probably go to one of our crappy county fairs this coming weekend, but I can't imagine seeing anything photo worthy. There's only so many ways we can view roasted corn.

I was annoyed at the abrupt ending, but it's not like everything wasn't laid out for you (her and the other chick are friends, she'll end up with the guy). I still liked it better than Panic Room, because maybe my expectations were lower.
