State Fairs are awesome. There are rides, funnel cakes, ring toss games, and – the best part – fried things. I’m from North Carolina, home of the deep fried Krispy Kreme doughnut, so it takes a lot to impress me in the junk food department, but the Texas state fair has really upped its game. Here are their finalists for this year’s best state fair snack:

  • Deep Fried Smores Pop Tart
  • Fried Chocolate
  • Deep Fried Frozen Margarita
  • Fried Lemonade
  • Fernie’s Fried Club Salad
  • Texas Fried Caviar
  • Fried Frito Pie

In a category with many notable entries, all I can think about is DEEP FRIED BEER. Does anybody in Texas want to mail me some of that stuff?
