I've tried and enjoyed deep fried Oreos. Those are tasty. Deep fried cookie dough was pretty good too. As for the things on the list, none of them appealed to me. I am intrigued by the cotton candy taco though.

Other than the Maggot melt sandwich, I'd eat most of that stuff before I'd eat sushi.

North Carolina, famous for it's double wide butts and legendary beer guts has the most gawd awful calorie laden junk ever at the annual State Fair..... offered every year are the deep fried Girl Scout cookies, thin mints and samoas. sheesh. after living in metro NYC area where no one is over a size zero, i can't tell you how skinny i felt here before i lost my 100 pounds. the rest of the year everyone here stuffs themselves with half pound pimento melted cheese sandwiches on huge slabs of Texas Toast with a quarter pound of bacon on top and a side composed of one yard long spiral french fry.


here's a few that might not be on your list: Arizona sports a Nutella Bacon Pickle and rival to your maggot melt, it's a meal worm covered caramel apple (see picture)..............gag gag gag. Hawaiians have an annual spam jam which has some disgusting offerings. quite a few states offer a bacon wrapped caramel apple. Reindeer dogs are hot all the time in Alaska. Virginia offers a truly disgusting sloppy joe crispy creme glazed donut with cheese

Deep fried oreas, pickles or twinkies are amazing.

Having lived and worked in Indiana in multiple regions, nah, it is mostly the South.

Where exactly do you live in North Carolina? You don't sound like you live in Charlotte or Raleigh or Cary or Research Triangle Park or Chapel Hill or anywhere with civilization. NC is full of sophisticated restaurants, so you must live in the sticks somewhere.

Also, I don't think the food on offer at a State Fair is a reliable gauge of people's regular diets.

I'm going to the Wisconsin State Fair Thursday. I'll have to see what I can find and report back. I will definitely be having a beer float again though. Had one last year and it was fabulous. Of course it was Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss with Cedar Crest vanilla ice cream, so it basically tasted like a strawberry soda float. I had a whiskey float the year before. I didn't really like it, tasted too "boozy".

I had them for the first time ever in Milwaukee this spring and they were one of the best things I've ever eaten.

Cheese sticks on steroids.

With fresh, draft beer? Holy hell were they good.
