Fried food galore!

One of my favorite things about summer is going to the county fair & eat to my heart’s content! I probably shave off a couple years of my life every time I go, but it’s worth it… right? After not going last year, I was really excited about going this year. I even looked up what the new foods are & made a mental list on which ones to try. I don’t mess around when it comes to the fair!

Krispy Kreme sloppy joeDeep-fried Klondike barThe first thing I wanted to try was the Krispy Kreme sloppy joe. Yes, you read correctly. It is an original glazed donut cut in half with a sloppy joe filling. It was…. interesting. It wasn’t horrible, but it definitely isn’t something that I would ever buy again. It’s a good thing to try at the fair just to get that experience. At the same stand, my friend ordered the deep-fried klondike bar. It’s actually pretty good! But seriously, they’ll deep fry everything at the fair.. which is why I would only go ONCE a year. It’s the one day in the year that I don’t care how unhealthy I’m eating. I mean, I usually don’t careĀ that much, but I’d still have that thought in the back of my mind. Not on this day!

Cow pieIt’s fun going in a big group because everyone can buy something different and we all try each other’s things, but there were only 5 of us this time :( We didn’t try as much, but I guess that’s a good thing because I’m not as young and energetic as before! I got tired after eating that sloppy joe and there were still a ton of other foods that I wanted to try. For driving me, I bought my friend a “cow pie”. It’s become a tradition of ours that we get this every time we go to the fair together. It’s a frozen yogurt swirl on top of a waffle crisp thing, drizzled in chocolate so it gets a thin shell, and with your choice of peanuts or sprinkles. It’s soooo good! It’s so simple, but delicious!

Turkey legsOh, I should also mention that we ate a lot of turkey legs! I shared one with 2 of my friends and my other 2 friends got one each, so 3 turkey legs total. It was amazing! I was even contemplating getting one to take home! But I didn’t… and I kind of regret it at this moment haha. Anyways, we hung around this game area (this year’s theme is “Game On!”) and they had a lot of large-sized games, like a large Jenga , Connect 4, Operation, Dominoes, Chess, etc. We waited for our other friends to meet up with us, so we can more food! I was really excited to try the bacon root beer & chocolate covered bacon. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture! But honestly, the bacon root beer was just regular root beer with a strip of bacon in the cup. It tasted just a root beer, but the longer you leave the strip of bacon in it, the more you start seeing the fat collecting on the surface and on the side of the straw. We ended up not finishing it. And the chocolate covered bacon was pretty decent. I like the salty & sweet taste. I also had a bite of my friend’s gouda-stuffed bacon-wrapped mushrooms. Pretty good! I wouldn’t mind having that again.

And I think that’s all I ate. This was much more tame that it has been in the past. But it was less people in our group and not enough money and/or stomachs to accommodate! I do think I don’t spring back as fast as I did in the past… I act like I’m insanely old or something haha. But being 24 is definitely different than being 21. Those 3 years make quite the difference! And with that said, it is time for me to knock out. Hope you all have a chance to go to your local county fair (if you have one!) because it’s a fun experience & you’d be shocked to see the amount of deep-fried foods that are available!

Have a nice night! :)
