I've always been super interested in food. I'm on a permanent try something new quest, most of which has been asian food (where I will literally never be able to try everything as the cuisines and dishes go on forever compared to western food). I came across this tumblr post of state fair food and I have literally never heard of or seen any of this stuff other than the meat and potatoes! And probably won't either as the chance of me going to a state fair in the US seems slim. http://howtoraiseageek.tumblr.com/post/62655737887/went-to-the-virginia-state-fair-and-enjoyed SO THIS IS VERY INTERESTING. Chocolate bacon seems to be a thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolate-covered_bacon Probably works better with american bacon which appears to be uniform processed strips. Australian bacon includes the middle cut (the round part) and is not uniform. Looks like this, though you can also buy just the round part for slightly more which is the only bacon I buy: Anyway.. at first I thought the funnel cake in this photo was okonomiyaki but it appeared to have powdered sugar on it and I soon realized it was not LOL. So what is the brown syrup and white syrup (not mayo and soy sauce I assume). I've always been a bit unsure what funnel cakes are, is this a classic funnel cake? Tell me about more regional fried goodness.
