The new selections are a deep-friend Cuban roll and a "Thanksgiving Dinner"--
Cuban roll--that makes some sense and depending on actual ingredients and the seasonings I might even try that...
but can't imagine that having some faux turkey gravy and dressing bundled up and dipped in cream corn (which is not even a Thanksgiving Dinner staple to me) then rolled in seasoned cornmeal and deep fried would be something that would ever cross my lips...

I like the interesting foods at the fair but the fair itself is boring and a waste of money. That being said Ill probably still be there shelling out a few hundred bucks in a few hours to take the family because everyone wants to go except me.

Can't wait for the fair - showing out-of-town visitors the new & improved Big Tex! I'm interested in what the auto show will be like as well. And I'm a sucker for all that "fair food"!

I'm so excited for the fair. It's one of my favorite events in Dallas every year. I was never a fan of the Midway, but after going with some friends last year I really enjoy it. This year I look forward to playing some of the really young kiddo games with my boy.

I hardly ever eat anything fried throughout the year but I always sample the winners at the fair, unless they're sweets. Last year's winner - deep fried jambalaya - was delicious! I went back for seconds and then swung by for another round on the way home .

I definitely will be trying out this year's top two.

I love Fair Food. And I'd have to say that this year's crop of winners are showing a whole different level of ingenuity by combining flavors in their deep fried concoctions. These sound a lot more appealing than the Fried Butter, Fried Twinkie and Fried Bubble Gum from past years.

Don't even get me started on the whole Fried Beer and Fried Coke debacles...

I will try any of them, if we have room after our usual fair cuisine. Come in early and get one of those huge delicious cinnamon rolls in the Tower Building, corny dog from Fletcher's around noon, then afternoon free snacks from the Food and Fiber Pavilion. If we stay late enough or are still hungry, we'll split a fried delicacy. Can't wait!

Corny dog covered in mustard with a Dr Pepper>Beer>Jack's Fries>Beer>Corn on the Cob by Food and Fiber Building>Corny Dog to go. Variations - an Abel Gonzales creation/Belgian Waffle/Hans Mueller/Ruth's Tamales/Fried Green Tomatoes, Nachos or Black-eyed Peas in the Tower Building/Little Bob's BBQ Bologna Sandwich - really it has a pate-ish quality!

I've never missed a fair in my life, started in a stroller the year I was born. Wildcats go as a group once or twice per year and there is always a WWHS alumni table in the Tower Building, usually headed by Jerry Mattox (brother of the late congressman and attorney general). Once we went on HS Fair day, ran into a group of students and we all sang the alma mater...LOTS of eye rolling in the Tower Building!
