Today is the Red River Shootout between Texas and Oklahoma, one of the fiercest rivalries in the country. After their losses last week, the game doesn’t have national implications this year. But that doesn’t mean that fans won’t have the experience of the lifetime. The Shootout is hosted during the world’s trailblazer is deep-fried goodness: the Texas State Fair!
At the Texas State fair, they fry everything. Literally–everything. Among their list of accomplishments:
- Deep-fried ribs
- Fried Oreos
- Fried Twinkies
- Fried Peanut Butter, Jelly, and Banana Sandwiches
- Fried candy bars
- Fried hamburgers
- Fried Pizza
- Fried Coke
It takes true aficionados to take a liquid and figure out how to fry it.
- Deep Fried Latte
- Fried Cookie Dough
- Fried Guacamole Bites
- Country Pride Peach Cobbler on a Stick
- Fernie’s Fried Chili Frito Burrito
- B.W.’s Original Fried Banana Pudding
- Mama’s Fried Sweet Potato Pie
Who cares about nuclear weapons technology? Somebody took a peach cobbler, deep fried it, and put it on a stick! That’s true innovation right there.
So there you have it. You now have seven new and exciting dishes for your next tailgate. If you serve anything else, then you just aren’t American enough.
