Big Tex Awards For State Fair Fry-Ups

bigtex.jpgThe State Fair of Texas is nigh upon us, and today they released the annual "Big Tex" fried food finalists, wherein vendors compete for "most creative" and "best taste" awards. Prepare your gut for: Buffalo Chicken in a Flapjack, Deep Fried Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Deep Fried Texas Salsa, El Bananarito, Fried Autumn Pie, Fried Bubblegum, Hans' Kraut Ball and the Walking Taco. Eater National has all the descriptions, but we're agog at the Fried Bubblegum: "You’ll swear it’s bubblegum! A light as a feather bubble gum flavored marshmallow is dipped in batter and lightly fried to perfection." [-EN-]
