Food At the Fair: A Critic's Review

Some people go to the fair for the Midway. Some go for the autos. Some might have been there to see a football game. We go for the food. Seriously. We open up the fair program and begin mapping out where the food vendors are. We think that we are foodies enough to be self-appointed critics of the various edible offerings at the State Fair, therefore we formed a panel of judges consisting of ourselves and the taste results are below. We have rated the various foods on a scale of 1 - 5 corny dogs, with 1 being not worth the bite and 5 a mouth watering experience.

Fried Banana Pudding:
4 Corny Dogs

Fried Oreos:
4 Corny Dogs

(One of our judges taste-testing)

Fried Latte:
5 Corny Dogs

Fried Frito Pie:
5 Corny Dogs

(Another judge taste-testing)

3 Corny Dogs

Fried Cheesecake:
4 Corny Dogs

Not Pictured:
A Texas sized drumstick
4 Corny Dogs

Fletcher's Corn Dogs
5 Corny Dogs (of course)

5 Corny Dogs

And thus we conclude the review. We hope that this enables you to consume and enjoy as many fried products as are offered at the fair, and to avoid the icky fair-healthy stuff like corn-on-the-cob slathered with butter.

After all, the fair - like Christmas - only comes once a year.

And please don't be surprised if we have put on a few pounds since the last time you saw us...
