Okay, for those of you who have been under a rock, or who are just not from Texas, the State Fair Of Texas has been going on and next weekend will its be its last weekend for 2011. The State Fair has some pretty interesting food… mainly everything fried (that’s how we roll in the south!).
If its edible, then we’re gonna fry it. Fried butter, fried coffee, fried beer, fried bubblegum… yes, I said it. Fried bubblegum!
I was disgusted to say the least, but I said to myself, when am I ever going to have fried bubblegum? I at least needed to try it and report back to y’all! Let’s just say… it was interesting… okay it was flat out gross! I’m sorry, I couldn’t sugar coat it for y’all! The Fried Bubblegum was actually A “Big Tex Choice” and was awarded the most creative food dish. Creative? Yes, maybe… Taste good? Absolutely not!
Fried Oreos is not an uncommon dessert dish in the South… well at least in Texas. This sounds absolutely disgusting, but goodness gracious, this is good! Just needs a little vanilla ice cream, and BAM! Perfection!
There was also fried cookie dough. I wasn’t sure exactly if I was going to like this or not, but decided to give it a try anyways. Honestly, it wasn’t half bad. A little crunchy on the outside and a bit mushy in the inside. Drizzled with chocolate and powdered sugar, this dish was something to really check out.
So, if you are wondering why so many people from the south are fat, suffering diabetes, and are obese… there you have it! LOL
