Most of those are lame slight variations in an otherwise established food item.

Others are making me salivate hardcore. Riblets wrapped in bacon?!

I'd be interested in trying the prarie oysters.  I've never been anywhere that's offered them.

Go to Denver.  They love the bulls balls there. They are 'chewy'...kinda meh flavor. Sorta like Fugu in Japan, you eat them for the reputation, nothing else.  Calf Brains pretty much the same also.....

But if you want real cred vato,. eat the Menudo, if you have someone local who knows whats what.  Best hangover medicine there is.

Shrimp corn dogs sound intriguing. Or scary.
 
2013-07-22 08:07:13 PM
Mmm.  Jalapeno cheese corn dogs and tenderloin sandwiches sound reasonably tasty.
 
2013-07-22 08:09:33 PM
Take some sausage, deep fry it.  Dip it in fontina cheese.  Deep fry that.  Dip it in another layer of cheese.  Deep fry that.  Wrap it in bacon.  Deep fry that.  Dip it in cheese again.  Then deep fry that last outer layer.  Yes, you may call me Jesus.

I agree.  About half I want or really want.  The other half are "meh" or "yuck".

I want those riblets with bacon.
 
2013-07-22 08:10:49 PM
Yeah, Tenderloin Sandwich sounds good... is it pork or beef?

MrHappyRotter: Jalapeno cheese corn dogs


I usually find corn dogs to be boring, but adding japapeno cheese might give it just the right boost to get my attention and ravage my arteries.

/left ventricle, I pick you!

Fried pickles are already passé.
 
2013-07-22 08:16:16 PM
Deep fried prairie oyster? That sounds like a euphemism for something I really don't want to eat. Like what a really lonely sheep farmer does after he's despoiled one of his flock.
 
2013-07-22 08:17:14 PM
wake me when they offer bacon covered deep-fried Moose poop

/I had it before it was cool
 
2013-07-22 08:17:57 PM
Strawberry smoothies?  Really?  That's what's making its first appearance?  How in the world did they not have strawberry smoothies already?
 
2013-07-22 08:20:01 PM

bojon: Fried pickles are already passé.


So is heroin, but they're both delicious.

Even if you don't feel up to chewing the tripas in the menudo, the broth alone will cure the worst hangover......

Bacon-wrapped riblets sound horrible and I want some.
 
2013-07-22 08:23:54 PM
i really need to make it this year. i've spent half my life in iowa/nebraska and have never gone to what is reputedly the best state fair in the country.

vygramul: Deep fried prairie oyster? That sounds like a euphemism for something I really don't want to eat.


It is. But, honestly, once you batter and deep fry 'em they taste pretty much like everything else that is battered and deep fried.

/I speak from experience

Anyway, the first three are all funnel cake, so they can go to hell. As for the rest:

* Jalapeno Cheese Corndog: yes
* Fresh Tenderloin Sandwich: doesn't sound at all novel, but yes
* Bratwurst on a Pretzel Bun: "Ooo, a preztel bun" he says sarcastically. But yes.
* Cajun Flavored Cheese Curds: having never had a cheese curd, I'd have to try 'em.
* Deep Fried Prairie Oysters: yes, just to make my friends make that "Euww" face again

Its a euphamism for testes.

Our state fair is farked up, the regular food chains have lobbied the legislature to make the little food vendors buy hundreds of thousands of $ in top-shelf equipment, so they've been effectively shut out. It's the same old crap now every year, when we used to get some really interesting & damn good food.

Not to mention that to have a beer you have to sit in a fenced-off area & drink it, no walking around with it.
 
2013-07-22 08:32:05 PM

saintstryfe: Yeah, Tenderloin Sandwich sounds good... is it pork or beef?


Think smaller with more legs.

That sounds like a Sonora hot dog, except wrapped in Mesquite bacon on a bolillo bun.  Needs more spicy.

Will you be calling me an ambulance after I eat that death machine?  Seems fair trade.

smoked chipotle five alarm dipping sauce?
 
2013-07-22 08:46:22 PM
I had a red velvet funnelcake on St. Patrick's Day. They also had Strawberry & maple bacon.

None of those sounded new.
 
2013-07-22 08:54:18 PM
i want to go to there

We do it better at the Stampede

WTF is "carmel?"

Look.  If you want to mispronounce it like a filthy heaven, whatever.  You don't get to change the spelling.

Lamb fries (battered & breaded sheep balls) are tasty.  I had them in OK City every time I had to go there for work.

Correcting another while spelling "heathen" as "heaven".

This was all pretty tame.

I do like that they are breaking out of the corn dogs though.  We have a place nearby that does a lobster corn dog with a mango habenero mustard sauce that is about one of my favorite things to eat.


In other news, I heard that a kind of local legend round these parts is going to our State Fair with a "on a stick" version of a recipe called Haggar Duck.   You be the judge.

They flatten a duck breast and make it into a roll,  stuff it with a jalepeno and thyme cream cheese, wrap it in apple smoked pepper bacon, and then glaze it with a blackberry-honey-habenero bbq sauce.


I don't know how they are putting all that on a stick, but thats what I heard.  I will be having about a dozen if the rumor is true.

I might fast until the State Fair of Texas starts and then go spend $200 on weird food concessions, including a bit of puking.
 
2013-07-22 09:08:56 PM
asian kid with a side of turkey leg is on the menu?

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, now.

Deep-fried cronuts?
 
2013-07-22 09:19:21 PM
I like the sound of a bratwurst on a pretzel bun.
 
2013-07-22 09:20:30 PM

Kuta: Deep-fried cronuts?


Wanna know how I know you never made donuts?
 
2013-07-22 09:21:00 PM
I bet 100 internets that the "x funnel cakes" are actually "funnel cake topped with x." That's right, a Funnel cake topped with bacon and maple syrup, not batter infused with bacon chunks and syrup flavor. I've been to the ISF and my "apple funnel cake" was a funnel cake with apple syrup topping. You could put a steak on top, but would you call that a steak funnel cake? Is a corn dog served with a lobster tail a lobster corn dog?
