They say everything’s bigger in Texas. That’s true at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas, with the added caveat that everything is deep-fried, powdered with crumbled chips and wrapped in bacon. Although it runs for only three weeks in October, the fair is one of the most-traditional elements of Texas culture, and the food is a main attraction. Every year vendors fight to outdo each other with the most-gluttonous creations ever to grace a deep fryer. Recent winners include fried Jell-O, a deep-fried bacon burger dog slider on a stick (yes, all of those!) and a chicken pot pie pocket with mac ‘n’ cheese dip. Just remember to save room for dessert in the form of cookie fries.
