Day 13: Fried Food

Over the past four years, we’ve had the chance to sample some of the latest, greatest and strangest fair food to come to the N.C. State Fair. In the spirit of year-end lists, we thought we would look back at 15 of our favorite food-related posts from the past four years. Each day between now and Christmas, we’ll post a different food review from our archives.

13. Deep Fried Ambassador: Fried Food Edition (2010)

This is a guest blogger post by our Official Deep Fried Ambassador, Ashlee. We’ll be reposting her State Fair adventures from her Miss Ashlee blog throughout the Fair.

Fried Food Update

So tasty…
so good…
I love fair food!
But you know what??
I’ve been kind of taking it easy…
I’ve only had (and that’s often with sharing)
a turkey leg & corn dog

an ostrich burger

deep fried cookie dough

deep fried pickles & deep fried tomatoes

an apple (really who does that?)

deep fried pumpkin pie

French Fried Friend with the Deep Fried Pumpkin Pie before we dig in!
You can find this fabulous fried treat on the east side of Dorton Arena at a
place called “Gobblin’ Gourmet”. This is also where you find gourmet
funnel cakes! Oh… and how did we find this out?? Using the app of course!!

a Kool-aid pickle

and some honey sticks (clover’s my favorite!)

I’m feeling fine, but who wants a Deep Fried Ambassador that watches her figure!?!?!
But the honest truth is that I just don’t know if I have enough guts to try the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger! I watched Bearded Lady do it and was all sorts of impressed, but I just don’t know if I can handle it!
So… I’m leaving my fate up to the Facebook Fans of the NC State Fair!
If this post gets 100 ‘likes’ by Friday night,
I’ll do it!
Ugh.
I’ll do it!

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
