It Takes One To Know One
In part 1 of my NC State Fair adventures I had consumed a giant turkey leg, 3 deep-fried Oreos, a deep-fried Twinkie and Cajun-fried alligator-on-a-stick with Cajun fries.
That’s a lot of tasty food that probably took a solid year off my life. But I wasn’t done. Oh no. Not by a long shot.
Here, now, is part 2.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to, my friend, the Krispy Kreme Doughnut Burger.
Yeah, they were selling these.
I’d understand if you’re disgusted. After all, a bacon, lettuce and tomato cheeseburger in-between two Original Glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts can’t possible taste good or be good for you. But I’d also understand if you’re slightly aroused. I mean, when you think about it, it’s got all of the important male food groups in one convenient little package.
It actually tasted pretty decent. I’m not saying this is the way I want to eat my burgers from now on, but for a one-time event, it was totally eatable. Though, I’m sure you’re right about the fact that it wasn’t good for me. Oh well, I shoved it in my mouth like a trooper.
All I really needed after that was one <accent>wafer thin mint</accent>. Instead, I had a strip of chocolate-covered bacon. Could I be anymore of a chick magnet in this shot?
Now, like all patriotic Americans, I enjoy me some bacon from time to time. I also commune with chocolate on a deeper level than most people. So I really figured this was a no-brainer. Instead, it ended up being the worst thing I ate that day. Maybe it was just my piece, I’m not sure, but I ain’t doing that again anytime soon.
Full disclosure, I ate the entire thing anyway.
After that negative experience I took a well deserved break from eating. A few minutes later I had me another hankering for something fried. It was then that I decided to try my first deep-fried Milky Way bar.
As you can see from the fact that I had no problem getting the entire thing in my mouth, this was smaller than the deep-fried Twinkie. At the same time it was a heck of a lot denser.
Overall it was pretty good. I remember at the time not being too impressed with it. But as I think back on it my opinion has softened and I look forward to having another one someday.
Even with all the food I had devoured so far, I could not leave an event such as this without eating a, wait for it, funnel cake. There are a lot of fancy deep-fried foods out there, but nothing compares to the simplicity and deliciousness of your standard funnel cake.
That being said, I ran into something I couldn’t resist trying.
This was called something like “The Chocolate Destroyer.” It was chocolate funnel cake batter topped with whipped cream, Oreo cookie bits, chocolate chips and chocolate syrup. I’m not going to lie, this did just about kill me. Here is the last picture of me in good health.
While really good, it took me a loooong time to eat this, and I couldn’t do it alone. When it was finally gone, so was I.
And that’s it. With the exception of the chocolate-covered bacon, everything I ate at the NC State Fair that day ranged from pretty good to really delicious. If this were a pageant, my vote for the yummiest food would go to…the deep fried Oreos.
