State Fair Time!




It is almost State Fair of Texas time! I am not a native Dallasite so I still get excited when the State Fair rolls around. I am one of those people that will walk around with a gigantic turkey leg in one hand and a Fletcher’s corn dog in the other. I like to try the new fried food as well and this year’s contestants did not disappoint. Foods that I am looking forward to trying this year are:


Fried Banana Split
Creator: Shirley Weiss

What is it? Banana and honey peanut butter rolled in balls, battered and deep-fried. Topped with powdered sugar, caramel and chocolate syrups, chopped peanuts, whipped cream, banana split-flavored ice cream bites, and a cherry.



Fire & Ice
Creator: Abel Gonzales

What is it? A pineapple ring battered and deep-fried, topped with banana-flavored whipped cream that's been frozen in liquid nitrogen. The smoking concoction is covered in strawberries and syrup.



Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Waffle Balls
Creator: Mark Zable

What is it? Fresh strawberries covered in a thick chocolate shell, dipped in a waffle batter and deep-fried. Dusted with powdered sugar and served on a stick.




Food that I will not try this year:



Chicken Fried Bacon
Creator: Glen Kusak

What is it? Thick and peppery bacon seasoned, double-dipped in a batter and breading and deep-fried. Served with a side of ranch or honey mustard sauce.


Texas Fried Jelly Bellies
Creator: Justin Martinez

What is it? Jelly Bellies rolled in funnel cake batter and fried. Try to guess the Jelly Belly flavors as you bite into this treat.


Deep Fried S'mores
Creator: Tami Stiffler

What is it? Marshmallow cream and chocolate chips sandwiched between two graham crackers, dipped in batter, fried and dusted in powdered sugar.


Fried Chocolate Truffles
Creator: Nick Bert Jr.

What is it? A handmade dark chocolate truffle rolled in cocoa powder, battered and deep-fried. The truffle is then dusted in cinnamon, sugar and more cocoa powder.

Find the alligator kabob stand. It is usually on the row that leads towards the museums from Big Tex. They are a bargain for about $4 in tickets.

Sorry Phelps (the majority of) seafood, reptile-like creatures, and anything with the consistency of yogurt or jello causes my throat to automatically close and sends the following message to my brain: Stop Do Not Pass Go!

What a sad, empty life it must be to see an animal and not look forward to finding out what it tastes like.

LOL. I eat animals, I just happen to be discriminating in the ones I choose to digest.

chicken fried bacon?
