WTF What Texas Fried - at the 2012 State Fair


The Texas State Fair is an annual event held in Dallas during the Fall, usually held some time in September and October. The Texas State Fair is the largest state fair in the US with over 2 million attendees in2010. The fair has a number of things that people of all ages can do such as see new auto products, learn about wine, learn about farming, enjoy of few rides and of course sample some great food, not just anyfood but "Fried Food". One of the biggest things at the fair over the last few years has been the various types of fried foods. We had only heard about the various fried foods but were quite amazed to see thatthey fry anything. 

The fried food is available all over the place but if you want to sample something specific, you may have to figure out where exactly that is being sold. We took pictures of the food stands and came up with all thefried products we could find. Turns out, you can have a complete fried meal - from drinks to desserts. We found so many fried things but no Fried Rice. :-)

What did we sample you ask? Well, we stayed away from the fried food and found a nice truck called the Good Karma Kitchen that served some good vegan and organic food (who let these guys in?). It was very tasty. 

Unfortunately on the final weekend, the biggest fried thing at the state fair was Big Tex. Big Tex was a 52 ft statue and marketing icon of the state fair. Unfortunately, he caught fire and burned down.
