A few recent conversations and an "Unwrapped" showing a state fair has given me dreams of foods from fairs. Where else can you take food that is already so terrible for you, and then deep fry it?
This all led me to wonder what kinds of foods people across Craftster love from fairs or carnivals or what-not, and any recipes you might have. Share, because I must know how to deep-fry a candy bar! Cheesy

I tried a deep friend oreo this one time at a football game.  It's not what you'd expect, it's all soft, like a doughnut with a super sugary, kind of grainy filling.  Wasn't such a fan.

Fried pickles, now those are tasty.

When I go to fairs and the like, I tend to eat things like Italian sausage and pepper sandwiches.  I've never had a deep fried candy bar, Twinkie, or Oreo. The idea kinda creeps me out. *L*  Whenever I go to to Jackson's Mill (WVa), I like to stop by the booths that have people's homemade stuff.  I bought a jar of cherry butter that was fantastic.  There are also people making kettle corn, and churches and other organizations sell things like hand-cut french fries and the like.  Oh, man, I love fairs and festivals.  *drool*

My step dads restaurant - which has been shown on Diners Drive ins and Dives onthe food network - has tons of deep fried foods - anything by hostess - ie twinkies, ding dongs etc... he does the deep fried oreos, any candy bars, deep fried bananas with chocolate sauce, spicy pickles-my personal fave, cauliflower - not bad! , gizzards - and other various chicken parts - deep fried coke,  ice cream... on and on and on and on ...he even will serve just the fried breading with powdered sugar, and the latest is an entire burger inc. bun and fixings and deep fries the ENTIRE thing!!  They serve at least 40 of them a day!! I have not had one of those - The older I get the less fried foods like ME!

MMM yummy. Fresh mini fried donuts are my fave deep-fried fair food. As for the everyday, a family comfort food is deep fried bread balls... now THOSE are something I could eat until I felt like blowing up... and then one more!!

funnel cakes and cheese curds are my favorites.

I had never heard of a deep-fried candy bar until today - someone at work was talking about them. Now, I log on and see it again. I must try it at the next county fair!

My favorite thing to get at the fair is a Chicago dog and a fresh lemonade. Then maybe some of that weird astronaut ice cream stuff. And indian fry bread. and beer. mmmm.

I demand to know how you deep-fry Coke. I saw it on TV, but it still seems crazy. I bought kettle corn at this Dicken's Christmas thing last year and it was so good. I wanted to get the pork skins too, but I was the only one who was going to eat them.

i had a deep fried snickers at a fair a few years ago.  I was less than impressed.  I would have rather had the snickers bar plain.

My favorite fair food is deep fried cheese curds.

ps i think the key to deep frying the candy bar is to freeze it until it is hard as a rock, then you batter it and stick it in the deep fryer.
