There was a time, many years ago, that I would spend every moment I could at the Illinois State Fair feeding my addiction to carnival rides. There was a thrill behind every loop, flip and stomach turning dive while watching the lights flash by. Then of course I grew up and realized that if I wanted to keep the contents of my bladder to myself, I had better skip the rides altogether and enjoy the plethora of fried, sweet, savory and just plain incredible state fair foods. Of course those don’t come without consequences either, heartburn just being the first thing on that list.
Pizza comes on a stick now!
Despite the mental warning of “food poisoning” tell me to run, a good Philly Steak and Cheese can’t be passed by.
Steak, potatoes, vegetables, what more could a girl ask for? … perhaps a back rub too considering this hefty little plate came with the price tag of $11.00
Elephant Ear anyone?
We found the Skittle rainbow!!! Err wait, those are slushies .. and they even came in black and gray!
Sutter’s Salt Water Taffy, better for your taste buds than your teeth.
And finally … my reason for living … the Funnel Cake!
When you go to the fair, what sweet and savory eats do you most look forward to?
