    That is a tough one… I tend to steer clear of the ddep-fried candy bars and oreos…lol A nice grilled cheese from the dairy barn is more my speed!

    I’m not very adventurous so the most unusual was probably the fiesta potatoes. Like nachos but made with potatoes instead.

  3. Denise Wilson says

    I am not too adventurous when it comes to eating fair foods. I usually stick to a pork burger and pineapple whip. But, we did try a fried cheesecake a couple years ago.

  4. Aimee W says

    I’m not much for trying strange and odd things….I got nothing! lol But there are some delicious foods at the fair.

  5. Doreen Herndon says

    I usually don’t try those “weird” food items at the Fair. I stick with what I love, Ribeye Sandwich, Elephant Ear, etc.
    We did try the deep fried cheesecake one year.

    I haven’t been to a fair in years so I haven’t tried anything newly adventurous. If I win the tickets I can, though!
