Top 10 Food Finds at the Iowa State Fair
5. Deep Fried Cupcake on a Stick
Ah, now this is a dessert we can get behind. What’s better than a Hostess chocolate cupcake? If you’ve been paying attention at all, you known the answer is obviously “a Hostess chocolate cupcake battered, placed on a stick, deep-fried, and covered in sugar.”
4. Chicken in a Jar
Also, vomit in my mouth.
3. Deep Fried Snickers Bar
An oldie but a goodie. Still hard to beat. Love that someone thought this needed added sugar on top.
2. Butter Neil Armstrong
Legendary butter sculptor Duffy Lyon originally planned to carve a butter Michael Jackson statue this year, which clearly would have been a lock for the number one spot. Unfortunately, prude Iowans (and PETA) voted down the dairy MJ idea and Duffy went with the less controversial butter moon landing instead. No King of Butter, but still pretty amazing.
1. Pork Chop on a Stick
Another year, another loss for the humble knife and fork. Sorry, utensils, but you will never, ever, beat stick and teeth.
