"They Aren't Deep Fried And They Aren't Dipped In Chocolate"

This was the curious announcement we heard while walking by a stand where ham biscuits are sold at the North Carolina State Fair.

Apparently, while we were living in China, deep fried and chocolate dipped foods have become all the rage on the midway. When Dylan first mentioned that he was so looking forward to chowing down on some chocolate covered bacon, I thought I had heard him wrong. But, there he is, right in front of your eyes, "pig lickers" in his hand (and stomach).

And then there was the deep fried cheeseburger Dylan wolfed down several hours later. As it turns out, you can get pretty much anything deep fried at the fair. How about some deep fried...

HoHos.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Twinkies.

Pickles.

Candy bars.

Macaroni and cheese.

Pecan pie.

Oreos.

As for the four of us, we stuck to our old standbys, like lemonade, corn on the cob, and a Butcher Boys London Broil sandwich. Now, that's pig racin'!

Ew! A deep fried cheeseburger?! :P What did you guys eat that was deep fried? I've never gotten beyond a regular old funnel cake. Although I had one with apple topping once. Yum!
