Calories at the County Fair

My last article featured photos of People Watching at the Orange County Fair, while this one will focus on the vast array of Food offerings. Not having been to a county fair in years, I’d forgotten about this part of the experience. I felt overwhelmed while taking these pictures, but set my mind to showing you the variety available. I don’t know where the current bacon fad comes from, but nearly every food booth offered some sort of bacon – even bacon cotton candy (yuck). Calories at the County Fair, Dessert (7)And, nearly every food booth was touting FRIED. I eat as little fried food as possible, and don’t really care for bacon, so perhaps you can appreciate my dismay at seeing bacon wrapped deep-fried pickles and turkey legs, a frozen banana wrapped in chocolate and coated with peanut butter and bacon, or a maple bacon deep-fried donut. The picture below proudly states the theme of Fair Food – UNHEALTHY! Maybe that’s the point of going to the Fair… living life on the edge, walking the wild side, live for today as there may not be a tomorrow.Calories at the County Fair (28)This next picture of the nurse holding the defibrillator paddles really says it all:Calories at the County Fair (14)I couldn’t decide how to share my photos with you, but finally broke them up into the galleries below. First, we’ll start with photos of some actual food in all its glory:

Next we’ll move on to the colorful, fetching food booths:

And last, but surely not least, pictures of dessert offerings:

While my goal was to take a picture of ALL the various food offerings, I found that idea impossible. The selection was endless! Once my daughter joined me, we each bought a corn dog (yes, it was deep fried!) and a beer. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    The food at country fairs is supposed to be awful, but some of these really take the (deep-fried chocolate) cake!

    It’s like … watching zombies … or something! I am speechless! In your second image (#28) I can actually see a casualty being airlifted from the scene!

      I’m sure there are plenty hauled away on stretchers. Really, the reputation of Americans being fat is not helped by county fairs!!
