Fair Food

Summer is a time of sunshine, swimming and fairs. Fairs are infamous for their fried delicacies and sugary treats. The Mon County Fair recently made an appearance, and I went to see what it was all about. While I was disappointed they didn't have any local vendors, they did have a handful of shops serving up your typical fair fare:

Cheese fries, cotton candy, pulled pork, deep-fried Twinkies & Oreos, meatball hoagies, pizza, corn dogs, candy apples, and my choices that evening - lemonade, Philly cheesesteak and funnel cake.

ABC made their own list of top fair foods:

1. Caramel Apples
2. Belgian Waffle on a stick
3. Deep-Fried Oreo Cookies
4. Corn Dogs
5. Frozen Coffee On a Stick
6. Cotton Candy
7. Funnel Cake
8. Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
9. Deep-Fried Norwegian Banana Split
10. Open-Faced Grilled Spam Sandwich
