The State Fair of Texas

Just when it doesn’t seem like the offerings at the State Fair of Texas can get any more indulgent — or absurd — the annual fried food bonanza has announced even more new food options for this year’s fair.

In addition to the deep-fried Froot Loops and fish bowls full of booze, the State Fair of Texas has announced a line-up of lesser-known snacks that are brand new to this year’s fair. When the State Fair of Texas kicks off on September 29, fairgoers will be able to score snacks like jalapeno popcorn, chicken-fried bites of SPAM, and deep-fried arroz con pollo.

These inventive new snacks, which also include beer flavored with sea salt caramel and a veggie dog for the meat-averse, will be scattered at snack stands across Fair Park, which means that fried food fans may have to do a little digging to find the deep-fried, cheesecake-stuffed apple ice cream sundae.

Check out the full list of new snacks (and their locations!) below. The State Fair of Texas is just a few short days away, which means that it’s already time to start saving room for these ridiculously decadent snacks.
