Every year, state fairs across America try to find new ways to DEEP FRY FOOD. But NONE of them can touch the brilliant frying minds at the Texas State Fair. It draws the cream of the frying crop.
--The Texas State Fair opens on September 30th. And this year, the deep-fried offering that's got everyone talking is . . . DEEP-FRIED BUBBLEGUM.
--Now . . . they don't actually batter a stick of Big Red and drop it in the deep fryer. Apparently that doesn't work. The fried bubblegum is a deep-fried marshmallow that's flavored with pink bubblegum extract, then covered in frosting and Chicklets.
--Here are some of the other food creations that will be making their debut at the Texas State Fair . . .
--Deep-fried sauerkraut and pork sausage ball.
--A taco served in a bag of nacho cheese-flavored Doritos.
--A buffalo chicken strip coated with pancake batter and deep-fried.
