    I live in San Diego and our county fair was done 3 weeks ago. I thought I would like to share some deep fried goodness that they had this year.

    we have The National Peanut Festival at the end of October each year.
    i only go for the food that is available once a year.
    of it all, i grab enough Kettle Corn to take home, and i spend the day (5-6 hours) nibbling on other things.
    must gets:
    Sausage Dogs (2 or 3)
    Funnel Cake
    and a box load of Peanut confections from the locals. Homemade brittles, pralines, natural Peanut Butter, and small bags of flavored roasted peanuts.

    i don't have the gumption to eat deep fried twinkies and Oreos, lol.

    I always want to try that kind of food, but every time I go to a fair I decide not to because everything costs at least $6 each, and over 90% of the people in line are disgusting fatties. Gee I wonder why those people are so overweight.



    I am sure it tastes good though, and I would like to try a lot of that food. :(

    At first I thought this was going to be about fair trade food... clearly I was wrong. I dont think we get much of this stuff here... and frankly I'd stay well away from it that stuff could end me

    That's what I call honest advertisement! LOL!
    If only fast-food restaurants listed their products like that!
    Triple Bypass, The Heart Stopper, Flatliner! LOL! Great names!

    Has the guy from Man vs. Food ate like 10 pounds of this crap yet?

    If he hasn't--he should.

    Thats ridiculous. the Deep Fried butter, yeah, too much. It should be illegal to serve shit like that.

    I admit some of it tastes wonderful, but at the end of the day it's killing people and you wonder why our country is so damn fat and obese.

    Carnival food is definitely part of the experience. Admittedly it's been years since I ate any, but really it's a right of passage for experiencing the fair.

    Wash down a funnel cake, a slice of pizza, and some deep fried oreos with a 32 ounce coke, then take a ride on the vomit comet. Also, the smells of all the food is definitely important to the atmosphere.

    We have peanut festivals, strawberry festivals, watermelon festivals, and who knows what other ones.

    I like the turkey legs, churros, funnel cakes, and sausage tacos. Have yet to see the deep fried extravanganza here

    I don't think the day is far off when stuff like this will carry mandatory health warnings, like cigarettes.

    What's interesting here is they're pre-empting the existence of such legislation and and advertising the health risks as a sales gimmick. :lolol 

    The way it trivialises such matters is questionable, but at least you could argue the people know what they're getting themselves into. Is it all part of a culture of self-destruction?

    This is why I fully support nutritional information on everything that's consumable. I don't care what you want to eat/sell, but at least be honest with yourself/your customers.

    That stuff in the first post still looks delicious though.

    Well, it's not like you're going to carnivals every day and just eating this stuff all the time. Stuff like this is awesome in moderation.
