It’s no secret that fair food has gotten completely out of hand in recent years. I’m no expert, but I’m going to hazard a guess that Deep Fried Oreos [recipe here!] were the gateway food that led to the scores of batter-fried monstrosities local fairs serve these days.
And yet, I can’t deny it, fair food is the absolute best. It’s overpriced, greasy, and an absolutely essential part of summer’s highlight reel (along with fireworks, barbecues, beer, and bald eagles screaming as they tear through the sky, #MERICA!).
Here are some of the foods that will have you weeping tears of red, white, and blue, while simultaneously reaching for the antacids.
