Deep Fried Ambassador update: How ’bout them apples?

Our Deep Fried Ambassador is busy blogging about all things N.C. State Fair related. We’ll re-post all of her Fair entries, but be sure to check out her Pretty*Swell blog.


How do I begin to describe Miss Debbie’s Specialty Apples?

Colossal. Decadent. Scrumptious.

With names like “The Ultimate Apple Super Extreme” and “Cashew Turtle Super Monster,” these apples are incredible. My husband, a candy-apple connoisseur, says that Miss Debbie’s apples are the best he’s ever tasted.

We shared a pecan pie apple this week (fresh Granny Smith coated in homemade caramel, dipped in a homemade pecan praline confection and rolled in pecan pieces and cookie crumble). Holy cow that thing was GOOD.

I chatted with Miss Debbie, and she’s as nice as can be. You’ll find her booth inside the Commercial and Education building. She also sells her amazing apples online.

Take your time. There are a bazillion choices. And I’d venture to guess that they’re all delicious.

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.


  1. Our first Miss Debbie Specialty Apple, but not our last! We had the chocolate, carmel, praline apple and loved it. Next time we will get 2 so we each can have a whole one.

  2. I tried the candy apple it was great! I also bougt some of the deep fried corn and they are right it is great! Definitley worth the money the family that run the place is great!
