Fair Food

While visiting a county fair last week, I discovered the existence of deep-fried Twinkies. Who knew that you could take something with as many empty calories as a Twinkie and make it even worse?

I talked to a man holding the fresh-from-the-fryer confection just before his first bite.


Within moments, the Twinkie was history...


but he'll be months working it off. Now tell me, would you trade a Twinkie for this look?

Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. Proverbs 15:17

I could outdo that picture...but for very different reasons! Furthermore, I'm sure we'll never be able to afford fair food as a trade off! By the way, how much did they charge for a fried twinkie? It honestly has little appeal to me but one of those fried onions...oh my! :O

My favorite fair food is the deep-fried Funnel Cake. YUMMMM! I can't wait to get to the Indianapolis State Fair to have my next one!

That bellyful of deepfried sweetness was $3. Cherith, I have a feeling that your bulging tummy will cost you a bit more than that!

Cherith said...

$3 isn't too bad :D Was it crunchy or soggy? I can't imagine?

Ok Rookie!!!! You haven't seen anything until you have been to the IOWA STATE FAIR and have had a chance to eat.....deep fried Snickers on a stick....Funnel cakes(Marcie)....deep fried pickles on a stick....we also have the deep fried Twinkies on a stick....and this year they are talking about deep fried marshmallows on a stick ...something to that effect anyway. Every year they add something new. Fair starts Aug 13. You are invited. It really is a lot of fun.
Glad you had a good time at the fair you visited. Would love to have you come and visit ours. :-)

Cori, Is that a raspberry or did I only see a partial comment? Have you had a deep fried Twinkie?

Beth, just reading the list of goodies (?) made me feel fat! I wonder who gets the honor of dreaming up the new ones?
