Ohio State Fair – Funky FoodSeptember 2, 2015

One of the strangest things at the Ohio State Fair is the range of odd ‘fair food’ items. The grossest one that I saw was the Sloppy Donut. I really could not order one to see what is actually looked like  but the photo tells it all. Two Krispy Kreme donuts as a bun with sloppy joe mix in between. I never saw anyone order this. I cannot imagine anyone buying this.


The second ‘fair food’ that I found totally odd was the deep fried buckeyes. Buckeyes are the desert treat of peanut butter covered in chocolate. They take these buckeyes and then deep fry them. They will also deep fry a lot of other commercial treats like twinkies, snickers bars, pop tarts, or a grilled cheese sandwich. Strange – I guess it is a novelty item that might appeal to teenagers.


Finally, another vendor freezes a slice of key lime pie and then dips it in chocolate and serves it on a stick – very weird.
