County Fair Food

I made a point of only buying food that wasn’t normally available except at a fair.

Decisions, decisions

Jumbo Corn Dog ($5) — This was tasty, but I soon ran into a problem. Because the stick was so long (and very sharply pointed), I got to a place where I could no longer eat off the end. Which left me with a choice. I could either eat around the stick (the corn on the cob method), which would be sloppy, or I could try to push the dog up the stick (risking having it crumble and fall). Which method would you have adopted?

Corn on the Cob ($3) — It was very tasty, but it lacked that scorched, smoky taste that makes the corn at the Wisconsin State Fair so awesome.

Root Beer — They had a variety of “home made” drinks. I had to buy a mug (for $6), but I could sample as many flavors as I wanted before getting the mug filled with the drink of my choice. (Refills were $2, but the mug was so large I was satisfied with one.) I tried the birch beer (too sweet) and the sarsaparilla (and yes, that’s how you spell it), but that was rather dull. I went with the root beer, and wasn’t disappointed, although it didn’t quite match the best of Dog n Suds.

    corn-on-the-cob style, man!

    Also, regarding the lead image in this post: nice!
    I also liked the cow butt pic from your last post.

    I’d have taken my pocket knife out and cut the end of the stick off

    You know, my brother(see above comment) can actually be amazingly brilliant sometimes.
