Cheesy bacon bombs, fried watermelon sampled at State Fair


Oklahoma City —

My next stop was at Smokin’ Pistols where I tried Deep Fried Ribs. As much love as I have for a good ol’ rib, I didn’t care for this much. The rib was far too tough for my liking. The taste was decent, but I was turned off by the toughness.

After trying these new foods and getting some of the oldies but goodies, I barely had room for the items on my list served at the Diventuri Concessions stand. But just for you, I had to have a Bacon Wrapped Corndog and an order of Deep-Fried Butter.

The corn dog was just the way it sounds: your traditional fair favorite wrapped in bacon and then fried to a golden brown. I’ll take this corn dog over a regular one every time.

I figured I may have a heart attack on the spot after eating one of the deep fried buttery morsels. It’s a delightful blend of butter, cinnamon, butter, sugar, butter, dough and butter. I recommend sharing an order with two or three of your friends.

There were other new state fair foods on my radar, but a guy has to draw the line somewhere. The Bacon Wrapped Caramel Apple looked and smelled wonderful and the Giant Cream Puff (giant puff filled with chocolate and topped with bacon) was probably super rich. 

Others might like to give the following items a try: Cinna Burger (a cinnamon roll split in half with burger items in the middle), Cookie Dough Parfait, Crawfish Enchiladas (I just can’t do crawfish, just can’t), Deep-Fried Artichokes, Deep-Fried Philly Cheese Steak and the PBJ & Pancake Burgers (PNBJ is a burger topped with peanut butter, bacon and jalepeños while the Pancake Burger includes bacon, cheese, a fried egg and syrup served between two pancakes).

Now excuse me while I recover from my food coma.
