Deep Fried Ambassador: Fried Food Edition

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!
I’ll do it!

  1. I have been to the fair once this year for the food and will return this weekend…however, I was VERY disappointed to find the LACK of Deep fried Corn on the Cob…there was one stand that offered this delicious treat last year, but it is no where to be found this year…what happened to the deep fried corn on the cob?
