Is it true that white chocolate is congealed bacon grease?

Some how or other the phrase "white chocolate and tapioca" because a euphemism in certain circles for something a lot more fun.

White chocolate is dildos.

Think to yourself: does white chocolate taste awesome and delicious? No? Then there's your answer.

deep fried bubblegum and deep fried salsa... that's farking disgusting...
I wouldn't mind trying the white chocolate bacon though

This just in...putting crappy ingredients on Bacon doesn't make it not crappy.

bacon is kinda old and busted. guanciale is where it's at.
 
2012-07-29 11:18:29 AM
The good news is, it's bacon. The bad news is, it's covered in white chocolate. Fortunately, it's only a thin layer of white chocolate. But, the bacon contains sodium benzoate, so it's kind of a wash.

I'll admit that the fried salsa had me intrigued, but I agree on the fried bubblegum.

/Used to see something called a Hobson's on the menu in drive-ins in W. Montana: it was a snow cone covered in marshmallow creme. That appealed to me about as much as fried bubblegum.

Had some deep fried oreos last night at the fair. Muy bueno. Passed on the deep fried kool aid, tempted as I was by sheer curiosity

That's just bubble-gum flavored marshmellow

I've only had them once, but given the chance I'd definitely have them again. Very tasty.

This fails as there is no Minnesota goodness.

I have been to the Minnesota, California, Texas and Iowa State Fairs (Arizona too, but screw that failure) and Minnesota is far better than Iowa and California. Texas is okay.

Well, what specifically about Minnesota fair food makes it better than Iowa and California fair food? Enlighten us, please.

Meh. About half of those were pretty unappetizing looking. Memo to food vendors: just because you *can* put it in a deep fryer, doesn't mean you *should*. And despite both ingredients being awesome on their own, chocolate covered bacon is somehow not as awesome as I always assumed it would be. I had a chance to try some recently, and the flavors just don't seem to go together very well.

Corn dogs, turkey, caramel apples, cotton candy, various sugary pastry type things, etc, all good. Deep fried (insert random and bizzare 'food' item here)? Not so much.

That dressed up belgian waffle would work as mall food court fare. But alas that would be too complicated for the little shiat heads who operate mall food courts.

flucto: White chocolate is not chocolate. Also, eww.


True. While dark chocolate is a magical food sent from the gods, white chocolate is some kind of horrible abomination.

\Also, I made myself sick on white chocolate as a kid at my aunt's wedding.

Funny how that works. I ate an entire half gallon of malted milk balls in about 1967 and the thought of them still makes me want to hurl.

I got over a similar issue with tequila, because tequila.

Glad to see cotton candy is included here. You cannot go wrong with that, and it's as fun to make as it is to eat.

/Wonderful, sticky fun.

Do you remember when there was that white chocolate fad a few years ago with white chocolate versions of every candy bar? I couldn't go through the checkout at the grocery store without feeling ill. I'd try not to look over at the candy displays, but just thinking about why I shouldn't look was enough.

Turkey Legs seem more common at the ren fest. State Fair seems to be deep fried abomination centric.

exactly what it looks like.

List fails without deep fried cheese curds.

demonfaerie, had my first taste of deep-fried cheese curds on a recent road trip that took us through Wisconsin and Minnesota. Talk about nummy cholesterol-laden goodness!!

Sadly, the Michigan State Fair ceased operations a few years ago. I'd loyally attended every year since I was in the third grade. When I was a kid it was the midway rides and the farm animals that were my main attractions, but in later years it was the sinfully delicious array of Bad For You Food for sale. One of the best things I'd ever munched on there looked like a square ice cream on a stick with a deep friend coating. On the inside, however, instead of ice cream was a big chunk of off-the-bone ham and melted Swiss cheese. *sigh* The State Fair....huge Brooklyn-style pizza slices, greasy french fries, coney dogs, elephant ears, cotton candy....it was one big Maalox moment, but it was always fun!
 
2012-07-29 03:07:14 PM
Ack! "deep fried coating", not friend. Curse you, Sunday morning champagne brunch!

This was my experience as well with a bacon ice cream sundae with chocolate sauce. I'd assumed that the bacon's flavor would be strong enough to punch through the chocolate, but I found that I couldn't really taste it until the chocolate was gone. [shrug]

You have more permanent/local vendors, mixed in with all of the mobile cuisine. And, there is always a competition to see what new "food on a stick" they can have.

I am not saying that CA/IA are bad, it is just different, greater variety.
