Kids are back to school, the weather is getting cooler, and with this change of seasons it brings the Great Ontario Tradition of Fall Fairs and with the Fairs comes the most glorious of all things Fall Fair Food. What ever your favorite guilty pleasure is, cotton candy, salt water taffy, candy apples and of course French Fries, which for some reason taste so much better at a Fair.
Cotton candy, corn dogs and candy apples once ruled the midway at the local fair, but visitors now want food that's exotic—as long as it's on a stick, or more importantly, fried. From health–defying anomalies like fried dough injected with Pepsi to squirm–inducing chocolate–dipped scorpions, the new sideshow is food.
Here are a few samplings you may or may not want to try this Fair Season:
Cheeseburger with Fried Ice Cream
One Fair-goer rationalized the appeal of a cheeseburger topped with deep-fried ice cream by describing the salty-sweet hybrid as a "milk-shake burger."
When fair-goers tired of the rib eye steak sandwich, someone thought why not try the Hot Beef Sundae, layered with mashed potatoes, marinated beef, gravy, cheese, corn "sprinkles" and a cherry (tomato). The tomato makes it healthy.
Even alcohol can be fried when it's pocketed in pretzel dough. MMMM beer ravioli!
Now for the people watching their cholesterol, you may want to skip these. Fried-food enthusiasts love the deep-fried butter balls.
Fried Jelly Beans
Also known as "a muddy pig," chocolate-covered bacon on s stick is probably the best combination of two foods ever thought of.
