ok...it's about time for the NC State Fair....and, as usual, they usually have a few food items that are, well, weird, to say the least....
i've seen fried Oreo's, fried Reese's cups, fried Snickers, etc....i've even had a chocolate covered banana, which, btw, was one of my favorites...
found this on our local news web site:
Currently in California the OC Super Fair is running (it's held for almost a month!) and a couple weeks ago the Fair folks out there put out a press release about their food. The deep fried pizza bites I could understand (in fact, I think I saw something like that at the Got to Be NC Festival.) But the Zucchini Weeni?
Yes, it's a hot dog, stuffed inside a zucchini, dipped in batter, and deep fried. And of course you can't have anything like this unless you serve it on a stick. If you're having some trouble envisioning that, Gina Trapani is here to help you out
Care for something a little sweeter? Hey, there's chocolate-covered bacon. It's also frozen, if chocolately isn't enough for you. The pictures are a little nondescript, but here's a nice shot of the Chocolate Covered Bacon booth. (I also liked the sign: "Ask me where to find the chocolate covered bacon!") If you want a preview of how this would taste, your local Fresh Market or Whole Food's may sell a product called Mo's Bacon Bar, which is also chocolate-covered bacon, only mostly chocolate and not frozen.
For pure-dee horrifying it might be tough to beat the Krispy Kreme chicken sandwich. Yes, a Krispy Kreme donut. With chicken in the middle. The one pictured in this news story (linky broke) has jelly in it. After that, a "pizza cone" sounds positively staid, and thefried meatball on a stick? It's almost normal.
so, what are some of the weird foods from YOUR local state fair??
