Be on the lookup for the Krispy Kreme Chicken Sandwhich. A fried chicken patty topped with Swiss chees tucked inside a sliced Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut and served with a side of Smucker's honey sauce.

I think someone dropped the ball and left out the bacons also.

And the mayonnaise. :P

I've tried chocolate-covered bacon (meh) and deep fried oreos (not bad) but my new favorite is unique -- NC State Ice Cream. Delicious and the kids working the stand are generous to a fault. One cone is enough for three people. We shared because I wasn't putting kids on rides, or in my car, after eating that much ice cream.

What is NC State Ice Cream - ice cream made on the university dairy? Maryland has that too and it is good.

Fried chicken donut sandwich with honey sauce makes me :scream:

Yep, NC State Ice Cream is a favorite by a lot of people. Very reasonably priced too :)

ooo what fun! I'm all about good eating, but IMO State Fairs and the Super Bowl are when all bets are off.

Happy memories of the Iowa State Fair when we tried deep friend Twinkies - before they hand it to you, they ask if you want extra powdered sugar on it.

The beef "sundae" sounds like fun - I'm only surprised they haven't found a way to serve it on a stick. :)

Deep fried Oreos!

I've never actually been to a state fair (does New York even have them? I don't know...), but we always get them from this amusement park in Connecticut that we visit every year. Slightly disgusting, but in the best way possible.

New York State Fair (http://www.nysfair.org/) is in Syracuse.

At our small county fair, about the best thing they have are cheese curds and funnel cakes, which are good, but not really a novelty. I really wish they'd switch things up and bring the deep fried Oreos because I heard they were divine!

The presenter at a recent cardiac training I attended is from North Carolina and said that the hot new treat at their state fair is deep fried butter. Freeze a stick of butter, bread it, and fry it. I am not making this up.

:rofl: I believe you. It's a big game of "what can we deep fry next?"

I thought I saw once on the news someone trying as a trial to deep fry "salad" (lettuce) :lol:

One of the most popular questions about the N.C. State Fair each year is “What is going to be the new deep-fried food?”

No doubt people ask because surveys of State Fair visitors indicate food is the number one reason people attend the Fair.
...
There are ample examples of this concept: deep-fried mac-n-cheese, deep-fried Oreos, deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, deep-fried pizza, barbecue sundaes.
...
A few foods that have slipped out this year: chicken-fried bacon, chocolate-covered bacon, funnel cake fries, deep-fried banana splits, and caramel-and-bacon-covered candy apples.

there's a restaurant here that lets you bring any food you want to deep fry and people bring odd things just to see what will happen

I've heard of deep fried dill pickles. Chocolate covered bacon sounds like heaven to me.....but I'd better take a pass.

Fried pickles are big around here, I see them as appetizers at a lot of places. I hate them but I only like pickles cold and even then I never crave them or anything.

I've always wanted to try choc covered bacon. I am a huge fan of salty sweet.

Deep fried butter sounds nuts! I've heard of people eating butter but I couldn't imagine biting into a stick of butter. How incredibly unhealthy is that, even more so than most fried foods!

Fried oreos...hmm, that sounds interesting to say the least.

As for this Krispy Kreme burger...GUHROSS! Sounds like something Sandra Lee would try to sell.

I thought you were from the South?

The year we went to the Iowa State Fair, all the talk wasn't about what was going to be deep fried (they've been there done that apparently), but rather what would be served on a stick. The local newspaper was showcasing the lasted gadgets for beer on a stick that year.
