Purell Paradise.

The Badger, Beaver, Flamingo, & I bundled up (high 30s tonight which is NUTS for the south in October!), braved the swine in '09 threat, and headed for the NC State Fair Saturday for the finest our state has to offer.
What, you can't tell what those deep fried globs covered in powdered sugar are? Why they are the deep fried Oreos the girls tried (the epic proportions offered at the state fair baffled me. i could barely eat 1 Oreo, but they came in a 5 pack!)


Another bizarre food. Care to take a stab at it?

If you guessed bacon dipped in chocolate you get an A+. The boys took the adventure with this little gastronomic gem. (i found it repulsive.)


Heard about the barrel monster? This mini-me version was spotted in the kids pumpkin decorating contest. Brava kiddo, brava.



On our Oreo theme ... "Oreo Cows" as I like to call the wooly belties.

Chocolate bacon sounds terrible! ugh.
I know some people who actually deep fry twinkies and candy bars at home. On a regular basis. Sick, right?

Awesome!! Fair food totally rocks. I've tried the twinkies and they were pretty good. But that filling gets really hot!

Just stumbled across your blog and love it! It may have been the fried oreos, but new follower and just wanted to say hi = )

I love the State Fair! How fun! I think I'd actually like to try the bacon dipped in chocolate. i really love bacon and the combo of salty and sweet. Too bad Michigan's State fair doesn't offer such a variety of foods!
