Deep Fried in Big "D"

Many of us are attending the big "Minnesota Get Together" also known as the Minnesota State Fair. While we are at the fair we are tempted to try the latest deep fried food to be offered. Meanwhile a few states straight south of us in Dallas, Texas, the Texas State Fair is gearing up for another year of deep fried concoctions. That fair will not start until the last week end of September.

Every year the Big Texas Fair holds a competition to allow a new deep fried food to be sold at the fair. This year they started out with 62 entries and narrowed the field down to eight. The two that make the final cut will be chosen over Labor Day week end. The eight finalists are: deep fried smores pop tart, deep fried margarita, Fernies fried club salad, fried beer T, fried chocolate, fried lemonade, fried Texas caviar, and Tex Frito Pie.

Stay tuned and I will let you know who the winners are. This writer and her fair-going maniac husband will be attending the Texas State Fair on September 26. I will write a report and critique when we get home. end
