Oklahoma State Fair

by jenjenk on October 3, 2011

I can’t lie. The only reason I like going to a state fair is to see all the crazy food options.  Things that I would never eat or make on my own.  Things that are just inconceivable to me.

Take Deep Fried Twinkies for instance:

I just can’t fathom how fat upon fat could be a good thing. Oh wait.  Right.  Mouthfuls of deliciousness.

As I walked on, I stumbled across this vendor that had Donut Burgers, Fried Mac & Cheese, Pork Parfaits, and the Blooming Onions.

I saw someone coming out the the Donut Burger and felt compelled to ask him if I could please take a picture of it.

Sadly, we were very boring and stuck with the Blooming Onion.  Not so sadly, it was very tasty!

An old friend of mine used to tout the wonders of the fried Pickle.  I’m still not sure what the magic behind it is.  I’m not crazy about the warm cuke.

Thankfully, I was saved from most of these things by friends in twitterland advising me against jumping into the madness of Fair Food.  Although , if there were a pie eating contest, I can’t say that I wouldn’t have signed up for it.

Interesting foods. I find I am hesitant to try some of these things because my stomach may not be happy.

Omg, I want the onion. I have never been to a county/or state fair due to my constant oversleep problem =D. I would love to see a photo of the deep fried Oreo!

So I’ve never actually had any of these fried foods at a fair… I guess I’m worried they would instantly clog my arteries or something! I wouldn’t mind trying a fried oreo, though. 😛

that is MY fear, as well!! i’m convinced it would instantly kill me! 😉

I love the foods at fairs too! That pickle looks sad… I’ve had fried pickle chips that had more breading and they were pretty good. My favorite fair food was Fried Coke… which was apparently just fried bread infused with soda.

Oklahoma State Fair – how fun! I was a foreign exchange student in Oklahoma – ages ago. Don’t think I ever visited the state fair, though. We’re in Scotland right now, heading to Glasgow this morning and my 10-year-old wants to eat a deep-fried Mars chocolate. Apparently it originated in the chip shops here, as a curious side item.

that 10 year old of yours has great taste! 😉
