Fair Food is easy to understand.
Take anything you like, fry it, put it in a bun, then sprinkle powdered sugar on it. With this combination, the possibilities are endless.
Okay, it’s not something you eat every day but it’s something you might try once. People who would never eat a Snickers bar might try a fried version (5 ounces, 444 calories, 29 grams of fat.) People who deride cotton candy as simple spun sugar (it is: 171 calories, 0 fat) might go for fried cheesecake. Don’t let the word cheese in there fool you. Six ounces of that delicacy equals 655 calories/47 grams fat.

The fabled funnel cake is at least 770 calories with a gargantuan fat load of 44 grams. At the Indiana State Fair some of the newer food includes deep fried butter, a hamburger between Krispy Kreme donuts, and chocolate covered bacon
