Mmmm.... Fair Food

Of Culinary adventures, I don't think anything takes so much bravery as fair food. Where has this food come from? I don't know. What is is made of? I don't know! Will it kill me? MAYBE. Will we eat it? YEAH BABY. Like this corn dog - it looks like a lethal amount of processed and fried "meat," and it is:


We were disappointed by this corndog because although it claimed to be the "biggest dog in the world!" It was really just two dogs on a stick breaded and deep fried. Speaking if deep fried, I was really hoping to try some of that other infamous fair food I have been hearing so much about. You know what I am talking about: deep fried twinkies, deep fried snickers bars, etc. We didn't see any deep fried snickers, which is what I was really wanting to try, but we were able to find deep fried oreos! They fried them, drizzled chocolate sauce over them, and topped them with sprinkles and a light dusting of powdered sugar:

The prognosis? Horrible! One of the worst things I have EVER put in my mouth in all of my life! Nate was only able to eat one bite before gagging, and even I could only nibble away half of one. I am still holding out for the deep fried snickers - I think it could be good. However, that is going to have to wait for the next fair we go to. By the time we got to the oreos, the fair food was already giving us rumbly tummies, and we knew it was time to stop. We wisely decided to forgo all the vomit-inducing rides and instead rode the ski-lift across the fair grounds and then went home. And were both sick the next day. Oh well, it was fun!
