L.A. County Fair

The

Where It Can Be Found:  L.A. County Fair at the Fairplex in Pomona

When: Aug. 30 to Sept. 29, 2013

The Awesomeness:  It's a dish your primary care physician might drop you over. When this sweet savory superstar enters your face, there's no denying its flavorful benevolence. Essentially, it's a huge glazed "Big D" from Texas Donuts with maple icing and hickory smoked bacon. If you can manage to keep it all together, this fair legend will deliver tasty thrills.

State Fair of Texas

Fried Bacon Cinnamon Roll

Where It Can Be Found:  State Fair of Texas at the Fair Park in Dallas

When: Sept. 27 to Oct. 20, 2013

The Awesomeness:  From the fair that brought you such crazy confections as fried bubblegum and the deep-fried latte comes the Fried Bacon Cinnamon Roll, a name which speaks for itself. Take solace in knowing that this one was awarded "Most Creative Fried Food" in the 2012 State Fair of Texas annual Big Tex Choice Awards. Consider it your civic duty to try it.

Minnesota State Fair

Bacon Ice Cream

Where It Can Be Found:  Minnesota State Fair

When: Aug. 22 to Sept. 2, 2013

The Awesomeness:  Completing the bacon trifecta is this fat-abulous number bringing together two time-tested American traditions into one salty sweet container. There are actually candied bacon chunks in this dish, so chewer beware.


State Fair of Texas

Deep-Fried Coca-Cola

Where It Can Be Found: State Fair of Texas at the Fair Park in Dallas

When:  Sept. 27 to Oct. 20, 2013

The Awesomeness:  State fair logic argues that you can deep-fry anything so long as it fits in the deep-fryer. Hence, this gem, which consists of deep-fried Coca Cola batter balls topped with Coke syrup and whipped cream. No word on if there's a healthier version with Diet Coke.


State Fair of Texas

Deep-Fried Butter

Where It Can Be Found: State Fair of Texas at the Fair Park in Dallas

When:  Sept. 27 to Oct. 20, 2013

The Awesomeness:  Deep. Fried. Butter. I won't lie — I hesitated to include this one based on sheer gross-out factor. But here it is. A good one for anyone's who's ever looked at a stick butter and thought, hmmm, not unhealthy enough. Health insurance sold separately.

State Fair of Texas

Fried Salsa

Where It Can Be Found: State Fair of Texas at the Fair Park in Dallas

When:  Sept. 27 to Oct. 20, 2013

The Awesomeness:  Have you ever tried dipping salsa into something other than itself? Well, now you can. Thanks to the fried salsa balls that get bounced around the State Fair of Texas, everyone can now turn the dunkee into the dunker.

Minnesota State Fair

Red Velvet Funnel Cake

Where It Can Be Found: Minnesota State Fair

When:  Aug. 22 to Sept. 2, 2013

The Awesomeness:  The funnel cake was due for a renovation. And it certainly got it with this red velvety number served at Smoothies and Jurassic Dogs at the Minnesota State Fair. For added flourish, it's drizzled with a cream cheese glaze. Yeah, seriously.

Minnesota State Fair

Ole’s Cannoli

Where It Can Be Found: Minnesota State Fair

When:  Aug. 22 to Sept. 2, 2013

The Awesomeness:  It's a flaky pastry shell filled with gooey ricotta cheese, topped with chocolate chips, pistachios, sprinkles, and a little powdered sugar for good measure. If this is far too healthy for your fair dessert, you can also dip the shell in chocolate. You're welcome.
