As summer approaches, we head into fair and festival time. I have gotten the definitive review of "fair food" from my oldest son who spent a day at the Texas State Fair just trying out the incredible selection of deep fried items.
First, he said, fried Twinkies are entirely over-rated. Once you bite through the crust, it is just liquified twinkie. However, fried Dr. Pepper is fantastic! If you want to go extreme...get the double fried funnel cake. That is batter that is fried, covered in powdered sugar, re-battered and then re-fried. Wow. Makes your heart stop just THINKING about it!
His favorite of all the fried food specialties? The fried Oreo cookie. He said it was one of the best things he has ever eaten. But that being said...here is a note of caution: do not do as he did and try all these items in a single day. He spent the next two days in the bathroom. You CAN have too much of a good thing!
