There isn't much you can't wrap with bacon or deep-fry, and Anthony Anderson is out to prove it, trying every insanely indulgent treat along the way on his new show, Carnival Cravings. Premiering Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 10|9c, this epic coast-to-coast trip promises all of the crispy, crunchy, cheesy and chocolatey snacks you can imagine (and some you can't).

One of the most-exciting parts about summer is getting to eat outdoors in the sun, and there’s no better collection of open-air options than at a carnival. Anthony's getting the most out of these massive gatherings, trying blow-your-mind bites like mac-and-cheese-stuffed burgers, lobster dogs and even a deep-fried root beer float (yes, you read that right). And he’s having plenty of fun along the way, with everything from a pig race to a bubblegum-blowing contest.
