You can get it year round at State (the real thing not the Teeter stuff).

First thing Sunday morning is ideal - and leave by 1 pm. That’s when the crowds start pouring in. Also if it’s raining that helps with crowd control. I’m excited for the food, which is really the only part I care about. However my son wants allllll the rides and alllllll the games!

I usually just get roasted corn and a turkey leg before remembering that I don't like turkey legs all that much. Hoping I can save room from some of these other treats.


I'm a Turkey Leg guy through and through, but I think I'm gonna try some other stuff this year. The N&O list is cool, but it seems a tad too conventional for the ridiculous offerings at the fair. How is the first and best-rated item a chicken-based item?!!


That's just soooo vanilla...

I've had Crack'n Cheese last year and it was delicious. I often find the turkey legs to be under-cooked. Maybe if it's "stuffed" that means more of the inside-meat will have been taken out and what's left will have been cooked more thoroughly.

Campfire on a Stick will 100% for sure be on my menu next week.
I wanna try the Crack in Cheese... so that's different than the stuffed leg?


And honestly, I don't think those Turkey Legs are real turkey... and if they are... then they're brined to hell with some additional substances that probably aren't fit for consumption... no way you can put turkey on direct heat for that long without a ridiculous amount of drying. If you've tried to grill one yourself without marinating and/or brining, then you know the deal.


The Turkey Legs honestly taste like ham to me... might be from all the "brining"

I probably won’t make it to the Fair this year. I waited 65 years to get in free and I moved away

Looks like a tropical storm moving in this weekend is going to hit the fair at a bad time!
