Indiana State Fair

We went to the Indiana State Fair this weekend, which I think is the first time I've been to a state fair. A staple of fairs, of course, is fried food, and I wanted to try the latest craze: Fried Kool-Aid.

It really tastes exactly like fried kool-aid.  That's not necessarily a good thing.  They gave us six of them, but one was really enough to check that experience off of my list.

At this same place, they had also sorts of fried stuff that is bad for you even when it isn't fried.  I figured I should try at least one other thing, so I also got fried oreos.

Fried oreos do not taste like fried oreos.  It tasted like fried mush.  I think if the dough had been a dough that gets crunchy when it is fried (like a hush puppy) rather than soft (like a doughnut), then it might have been better.  I also only needed one of those.  Check!

Here is something that I do not need to try.  Yuck.

  1. a) The fried kool-aid looks foul.
    b) I've had fried oreos, but they were beer-battered fried oreos. As I recall, the texture was pretty good, but I found the taste of the beer batter a little jarring with the oreo.
    c) DON'T KNOCK THE LUTHER BURGER. I mean, I've never actually HAD one, but I've always been curious. Hahaha.
