The gates are now open and the fairgrounds is bustling with activity.
As we’ve made our way around the grounds this week, we’ve been making mental notes on which of our personal favorite food items are back.
Mini-donuts, yes! Roasted corn, check! Apple dumplings, absolutely! Gyros and pizza, they’re here! Fresh-cut fries, check, check! Steak sandwiches, check! Gourmet candy apples, yipee-yummo yes! Deep-fried Oreos, ooooh yeah! Strawberry shortcake, mmmm yes it’s here! Cinnamon buns, yesssssssssss! Blooming onion, absolutely! Chocolate-covered bananas, yep!
When you spend 11 of the 11 days of the Fair on the fairgrounds, you get to experience a lot of food. On the plus side, being here that long helps us space out the deep-fried delicacies. On the not-so-good side, we have to spend a lot of time on our feet trying to counter a few of those calories. (But we would have to do that anyway!)
So now you know what some of the press office’s favorite foods are. What are some of your favorite things to eat at the N.C. State Fair?
