Haven't had a chance to try pickle pizza, but my sister swears by it.

Pass on the rest.

Hold my ponytail above my head, I'm about to "Turkish Exorcist" as we say in the "theatrically stucco four walls with buckets of our own sick" business.

I'm pretty sure I saw the flaming hot Cheeto funnel cake on Carnival Eats.  Another crazy creation from Mama Jane.

Buffalo Chicken Sundae:This savory take on a sundae from DeAnna's Steak Sundaes features hand-cut french fries layered with ranch sauce, freshly battered chicken tenders smothered in southwest sauce and spicy giardiniera relish on top.

I won't lie, I'd actually try that.

I'd definitely try the pickle pizza. Pickles seem to go with a lot of seemingly incongruous foods. The rest, though: BEURK!

It's probably got three days worth of sodium in it but dammed if I wouldn't actually take a few bites...

Dude... WTF is wrong with you folks?  Except for the funnel cake, that stuff looks awesome!  Sweet with savory, tart with savory, carbs and pulled pork?  Sign me up!

I'm still confused as to what happened between February and now that makes the fair any safer next week than Feb?

I got my first Pfizer shot two weeks ago, on the first day that age 40-65 were allowed to get vaccinated in Florida.  I have my next one on Monday, two weeks from then I'll have full efficacy. 

I'm 1 person in Florida of the at a minimum 80% (in college I learned it was 85 - 90%) needed for noticeable herd immunity. Anyone under 65 or not in a healthcare field is not fully vaccinated in Florida.  I'm sure the geezer portion of the state is really eager to get on the vomit launcher after a face full of deep fat friend corn dogs.

Just sayin' this wasn't based on any form of data, it's just hot so we don't give a fark.

I can't wait to get the hell off this sinking phallus of a state.

They're jumping way late on the Flaming Hot Cheetos trend.

But you like the pickle pizza?

Nope. That crap's repulsive. The grease saturated everything and turns the texture to hangover vomit. As usual, Florida ruins everything. State/county fairs in Iowa and Pennsylvania are where heart attack junk food comes correct.

I like the sound of it anyways - deep-fried pickles are really awesome w/ a ranch or garlic dipping sauce, and this one's got a "white garlic sauce", so I'm verrry intrigued. I'm in Calif tho, so no way I can try it.

Fair enough, implementation is key - just sayin' it sounds awesome to me, here in my dark, dank home office. :P

I'll stick with my own homemade shallow deep-dish pizza with corrizo or bacon, thanks.

That's all anyone needs, to have a few samples of those and then take a trip on a carny ride called something like "The Spinning Chunk Blow of Death!"

Pickle pizza... half of Fark just had rage-aneurysms.

Good.

Sounds interesting.

Maybe with a little pineapple for added zest and sweetness?

A push up bra is not going to distract from cheap veneers, busted highlights, and a strip mall spray tan. And why is she stapling that two seasons past sell by date Old Navy dress?

I'd bet you're wrong about that when it comes to her core constituency.

I can't believe the gelato nachos aren't getting more love. It's not fried or greasy, just fun colored soft serve served with chocolate served on a bed of what is essentially maple jerky. Granted, I'm biased towards stroopwaffles, but I couldn't help but salivate when I saw that parted-out, technicolor choco-taco.
 
2021-04-13 8:27:49 PM  
Also, I forgot to say that tater tots suck.

I'm sure that somebody likes it. I admit, it does look pretty. I like the colour green.

But yes, State Fairs seem to compete to come up with kooky ideas for culinary monstrosities.

Meh. Not picky with food.  Not picky with women. Would eat (out) and bang.  Don't curr

The pickle pizza would go nicely with Taco Cabana's Pickle margarita, which I haven't had yet.

Love Bob's Pickle Pops. I would so love a pickle Slurpee.

Also, the deep fried caramel apple sundae. Was expecting ice cream in the Buffalo chicken sundae-but I don't think I'd eat it. I do wish Burger King would bring back the caramel bacon sundaes. Yum.

It sounds delicious, but it's not a sundae. Sundaes are dessert, fries and chicken fingers are dinner. (Now get off my lawn.)

If you like green you definitely need to eat fairground food and then look in a mirror - you'll turn all sorts of shades of green.
