Everything Is A Little Better Fried

It’s almost that time of year again – FAIR TIME! The one time of year when it is socially acceptable to eat fried soda. Yup, you heard me correctly. If you didn’t see it last year, I feel certain you will see Fried Coke this year. My mom is cringing right now if she is reading this.

I try to make health conscious decisions when it comes to food, but at the fair…it’s just so darn hard! Each year there are probably five new fried items to choose from. You may try them with the thought “I’m going to try it just to try it…it won’t be good. How could that be good?” But it is almost always good. To date, my favorite fried fair finds would have to be pickles and Snickers. Not together, of course. I’m STILL waiting for someone to fry olives and Twix (again – not together). I think I would thoroughly enjoy both of those items.

(My friend Tina actually took this picture at the NC State fair a couple years ago! Isn't it cool???)

The Dixie Classic Fair starts on Friday, and the North Carolina State Fair starts two weeks later. So start planning – what’s it going to be? Fried Twinkies or cotton candy? That big gross turkey leg or fried dough? Alligator kabobs (gag) or a caramel apple? You can’t possibly eat it all!


  1. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, you know I am taking 1/2 day on friday to go to the fair. cholesterol here I come!

  2. I'm afraid you CAN and I WILL eat it all. And who doesn't like fried gator??
