Apples? Yuk.

That sounds disgusting.

By the time it's done it's covered in bees.

If it's not deep fried, it's crap.

I read steeek as steak.

Now I'm disappointed.

I had a candy apple once when I was a kid and it took one of my baby teeth. Never been able to eat one since.

North Carolina? Great. The fatasses shoving this shiat down their gullets are the same ones saying other people's healthcare shouldn't be subsidized.

Out state may be going to crap, but at least we can still get headlines for shiatty unhealthy food.

/I guess that's not really a positive, is it?

stayed tuned for next year's follow up the "DEEP FRIED BIG D's DOUBLE DOOZIE" and 2015's "DOUBLE DEEP FRIED BIG D's TRIPLE DOOZIE".

Looks awful. It'll look the same coming out too.

I did too then looked at the article waiting for the description and was seriously disappointed when I got there.  Also $20 for two caramel apples and some candy seems a bit silly.
 
2013-10-18 10:54:53 AM
WTF is a steeek?

This sounds well-researched and supported. I'm going to readily accept this as fact!

Two apples, dipped in caramel, then covered in chocolate, sprinkled with nuts, add a Ding Dong, on a stick...

It sounds...

Candy apples, and caramel apples, both suck balls

Frankly, a double-decker caramel apple with a chocolate truffle style coating (ganache then chocolate then sprinkling of hazelnuts and/or coconut) sounds great. What was shown was chocolate covered caramel apples with crap thrown on them.

Why can't you get anything not outrageous at a fair? Like a sensible small pear tart? It might actually sell.
 
2013-10-18 11:00:18 AM
Wow. Two candy covered apples on a stick instead of one. You amazing trail-blazer, you.
 
2013-10-18 11:01:07 AM
I see the usual contingent of we're-a-nation-of-lardasses handwringers is here.

As if anyone eats stuff like this all the time.

I too am disappoint it's not deep-fried and that it's a stick, not a steak.

But I'm glad that instead of freaking out and trying to appease everyone, the state fairs are saying "Yes -- we serve radically unhealthy food and fark you."

Karma Chameleon: North Carolina? Great. The fatasses shoving this shiat down their gullets are the same ones saying other people's healthcare shouldn't be subsidized.


And yet you want to subsidize their health care? The fatasses?

Your argument is flawed.

Did somebody say my name?
 
2013-10-18 11:04:55 AM
I don't think it would be possible to even eat that thing on a stick given the side items will just fall off so why not put it in a bowl, core the apples so the entire thing is edible... wait time to run to the fair and make some money.

If I were ever on death row and got to choose my last meal, it would be cheese popcorn and a caramel apple because those are my two favorite foods.  I love this time of the year because caramel apples are available at the farmer's markets.  That being said, I would not touch that thing.  A caramel apple is not supposed to be that monstrosity.
A caramel apple is a gala or red delicious apple dipped in warm caramel and then allowed to cool for a few minutes before rolled in pecan or cashew pieces, and then allowed to cool completely.  And you only get them on special occasions or like once per month at the farmers market -- so it is a REAL treat.

And I know because I am an expert on caramel apples.

This. I live here and you couldn't be more correct.

Why do they deep fry Twinkies and Snickers?

I stopped reading the article after:
''$7 for an oozing, cheesy sloppy joe on a glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut''

my stomach couldn't even take -reading- about it

I assumed the 'on a steeeek' thing was Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler, but a quick check tells me it's Jeff Dunham.

I'm sticking with Dibbler.

I had the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger here at the NC state fair a couple of years ago... and it was farking disgusting.
