State Fair May Include Fried Jello This Year
If your year just wouldn't be complete without a funnel cake sundae, deep fried butter, or some deep fried jello, you may have the chance to gorge yourself at the State Fair of Texas in a few weeks.
They'll announce Big Tex Choice semi-finalists in August, and the winner will be included as a new food offering at the "fry-it-and-put-it-on-a-stick-fest," also known as the State Fair.
Some of the other options that have a shot at getting a tent a the State Fair include:
Holy Guacamole Balls
Down Home Chicken Pot Pie Pockets with Mac 'n Cheese Dip
Fried Cookies and Cream Sundae
Injectable Great Balls of BBQ
Doritos Bacon Fried Cheese Stick
A panel of judges is putting these and other diet busters through taste tests right now, and soon they'll tell us who the semi-finalists are.
The judging must be a slow process, don't ya think? Even if the judges are pros at eating, they can't possibly pack in all of the fried food samples in a day. These things take time, and have to be spread out so the judges live to tell about it.
Wisconsin is offering fried fruit on a stick this year. That's so weird! At least we don't contradict ourselves and try to be even the slightest bit nutritious in Texas. We go straight for the artery-cloggers. Ooo, like Deep Fried Cheeseburger Stuffed Onion Rings. That's another option that could become a State Fair semi-finalist.
Judging continues for another week with the Big Tex Choice Awards and then they'll announce semi-finalists and then finalists. The State Fair of Texas runs from September 30 to October 23.
