This time of year every fiber of my being starts feeling a transition on the way. School bells ring, seasons change and all across the nation, the local fair comes to town. The State Fair of Texas is gearing up September 29th. thru October 22nd. and one of the big attractions, the fair food! Now the food at the state fair isn’t the traditional eats you’ve come to expect. Corn dogs and funnel cake are pretty mundane. At the Texas State Fair, it’s “oooey, gooey,” deep fried goodness! Here are some of the State Fair of Texas Best Food Picks that everyone is talking about.
This year’s finalists in the Fair Food competition include such delicacy’s as Beer Battered Beef Jerky, Fried Texas Dirt, (we’ve got to assume something to do with Oreos.) and Deep Fried Chicken Noodle Soup on a stick. Soup on a stick? You got me! If you’re really adventurous you might want to try the Deep Fried Fruit Loops, Oreo Beer or a Tamale Donut. Hopefully not at the same time. It’s always such fun to see the new ideas fair chef’s come up with for the new year. I can’t wait to see what new food concoctions will win the Big Tex Choice Awards!
