Favorite County Fair Foods--What's yours?
Elaine Magee, MPH, RD posted:
County fairs come once a year and when we go we have our favorite foods that we can only usually get at the fair.

I would not want to spoil that once a year fair let's talk about what your favorite county fair foods are and if there is a way to make a healthier version at home. This way you can bring the fair home during the year.

Unfortunately one of my favorite county fair foods is FUNNEL CAKES and there is really no way to make a yummy funnel cake without deep frying it. I can, however, make a light batter that is mostly whole wheat flour and then fry it in canola oil (a preferable oil because it is mostly monounsaturated fat and contains some plant omega-3s as well).

What's your favorite County Fair Food? And is there a way to make a healthier version at home?
FrenchBulldogMom responded:
Healthy option: Corn on the Cob

Unhealthy option: Deep fried oreos

I always eat these two things at the fair!
Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff replied to FrenchBulldogMom's response:
Oh My! Deep Fried Oreos! I have to find these next time the fair comes to town! Sounds delightfully heart stopping!

My favorites are corn dogs and cotton candy. Any way to lighten these up? Or, have you seen any healthy alternatives to Fair Food?

Good thing the fair only comes once a year!

Any Texans out there?

I just read an article about the Texas State Fair (Sept 30 - Oct 23). The Big Tex Choice Awards crowns the winner of the best fried fair fare.

Last years winners include - Texas Fried FRITOS Pie, Fried Beer, Deep Fried Frozen Margarita, Fried Club Salad, Fried S'mores Pop-Tart.

Even Fried Texas Caviar! Does anyone know, without looking, what Texas Caviar is?

Now, how do you become a judge? I want to apply!
