Are you trying to tell me that an all-theme-park diet isn't healthy?
 
2012-08-12 12:27:56 AM
I'm pretty sure the appeal of a theme park/carnival is not their healthy options. These foods shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Try eating better the rest of the year.

This is now the top five foods you should eat before you leave.

Or, you could show up a little early, bring a cooler, and have a quick sandwich before going to a themepark if you're really concerned with watching calories.

/I do that because I'm cheap

That's what I'd do when I had an annual Busch Gardens pass. We all quickly agreed that there wasn't any food in the place that we really wanted to spend money on and after that started bringing a cooler and going back out to the parking lot for lunch.

The only reason I go to crap state fairs or an amusement park is to eat all that shiat.
For me, there is no other reason to go.

Dr. Agon: Has he asked for anything special?
Dr. Melik: Yes, this morning for breakfast. He requested something called wheat germ, organic honey and tiger's milk.
Dr. Agon: [ laughs ] Oh, yes. Those were the charmed substances... that some years ago were felt to contain life-preserving properties.
Dr. Melik: You mean there was no deep fat? No steak or cream pies? Or hot fudge?
Dr. Agon: Those were thought to be unhealthy, precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true.
Dr. Melik: Incredible.

I got the the 100 calories each deep fried oreos and thought "That's not so bad". I neglected to consider they are only sold in bulk.

Diet Disaster: Soft Pretzels

It's not fried, it's not dipped in anything, so it's safe, right? Not when it's as big as your face. A jumbo-variety soft pretzel will cost you 527 calories and over 100g of carbs-almost your entire daily allowance.


Not dipped in anything? I buy my soft pretzels from the Amish, they dip those things in butter. What kind of wussy carnival is this???

Damn fairs... I personally hate them and the ridiculous prices on nearly every farking thing there. This saves me some money, but my fiancee and the girls absolutely love them. We went the other day mainly to scope it out and see what was there this year at the Missouri State Fair. I Spent $71 total for admission, some food and a ride on the Ferris wheel.

/They are going to go back next week with the fiancee's dad to ride crap. Which I'll be shelling out at least $86 for the 4 ride passes alone not to mention admission/food...

We got shut down by White Water for doing that. Security people told us that "health regulations" would not allow us to eat in the parking lot. Of course, they couldn't cite any such regulation and fell back on threatening to have us arrested. Congrats White Water, my kids hate you with the fire of a thousand suns.

I'll eat what I want. The health nazi's need to back the hell off! Some of us can do things in moderation.

Heh if I could afford one I wouldn't care about fair money. Then again I'm much like my dad in spending habits and even after saving money I'd still refuse to buy something else until my car is on the verge of death. He drove a 86 Chevrolet Celebrity until 2002ish. (went from TSgt to CMSgt before he treated himself to something new) :p

No, honestly how many times a year would you eat the items listed in the article? It takes a couple or more years of no exercise and eating badly to get like that.
 
2012-08-12 05:07:24 AM
My metabolism is beast, so I could probably manage for quite awhile.
 
2012-08-12 05:16:06 AM
When I go to the state fair, I budget about $80-100 for food. I'll buy everything that looks appealing but if I'm not with a group of friends to share with I will just take a few bites of each item and toss the rest.

Despite this moderation I'm still a fattie. But it let's me sample far more treats without feeling like my gut was gonna blow.
 
2012-08-12 05:52:20 AM
I'd be willing to bet that people eating these treats don't care much about the calorie content.
 
2012-08-12 06:00:54 AM
Wasn't someone breading and deep frying butter last year? I can't wait to see how someone tops that this year. How do you make something more unhealthy than deep fried fat?

Wait, they ground up bacon and made a burger out of it?!?! Monsters!

If you go to the carnival expecting to have the grilled chicken breast with apricot salsa on a bed of quinoa and then a Naked Juice to keep you going, (a) this carnival might be in Portland, in which case swap "Naked Juice" for "kombucha", or (b) you deserve what you get.
 
2012-08-12 06:57:29 AM
A better reason not to eat in theme parks is because they're a ripoff, Patronize theme parks which have sane food and drink policy and allow visitors to bring their own in.

Portland has the best food carts.

I suppose, but I hate eating meals on the streets. I prefer to eat the buffet in the club section at Blazer games.

If eating some of these the one or two times a year is a health concern, you have bigger problems. They are "treats" for a reason. And hell no, I'm not sharing my funnel cake.
 
2012-08-12 08:19:55 AM
I was at something called the All Good Festival last month, and I got a couple of funnel cakes at it. No way I could finish either, even with help!!!
 
2012-08-12 08:23:16 AM
You should feel like a terrible person for indulging in junk food at the county fair! Do penance by eating a truck full of fat-free snack cakes, fatty!
 
2012-08-12 08:32:52 AM
All that article did was give me a major craving for a turkey leg. And our fair doesn't arrive for another month. Dang it

Chicken fried bacon (with gravy) didn't make the list, so it's okay, right? Mmmmm.

I do like the sausage sandwiches they have at our local fairs. They fry it all up in front of you with onions and peppers. That and a funnel cake and you're good to go. Be sure to get the diet soda because you've already got enough carbs in your hands to feed a refugee family for a week.
 
2012-08-12 11:56:00 AM
I worked at an amusement park (Boblo Island) for a couple of summers as a teenager making funnel cakes. My uniform reeked of greasy sweet dough even after washing. To this day the sight and smell of a funnel cake makes me queasy.

I remember going to the fair as a kid. The welfare kids would feast on cotton candy and funnel cakes. I'd be eating the soggy bologna sandwich my mom packed.

Well, good luck trying to stay thin if you go back. Subway prices from three years ago:
