  1. The Wisconsin State Fair is huge here and my kids look forward to going every year. We love the animals, the carnival-type atmosphere, but mostly all the different types of "food" you can get! And I put the word "food" in quotes here because I think you all know what I mean!

    So yesterday we went to the fair and tried our first deep friend oreo. I have to say it was amazing: a chocolate oreo dipped in funnel-cake batter then fried to a crispy and delicate confection that literally melted in your mouth. The oreo takes on a cake-like consitency - almost like a lava cake.

    Personally my fav is the Caramel Apple Sundae: sliced green apple, topped with caramel, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry!

    So 'fess up and post your favs! I also would LOVE to hear about all the "food" on a stick that is out there!!
