Deep-fried Ho-Hos and chocolate-covered bacon

This morning we had our pre-Fair media lunch, and man, was it tasty. The Murphy House, which brought us deep-fried pecan pie and deep-fried mac’n’cheese last year, never fails to wow us with its deep-fried creativity.

This year was no different. We were able to sample chocolate-covered bacon (fittingly called “pig lickers”) and — brace yourself — deep-fried Ho-Hos. In the name of work research, the Bearded Lady, Firecracker and I took them for a test run. Check out the video below for our reactions.

You’ll be able to find the deep-fried Ho-Hos at the Murphy House’s location near the Grandstand Building, and the chocolate covered bacon will be sold at the Kerr Scott Building concession stand and the concession stand inside the Commerical and Education Building.

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.
