Terrifying State Fair Foods That Should Not Exist
So after researching amazing state fair foods that everyone needs to try, I have realized that sometimes even State Fairs go way to far. I hate to break it to you but deep frying does not make everything edible guys!
So here is a quick but disturbing list of food that you a buy at some of the State Fairs around the U.S.A. A lot are at the Minnesota State Fair...
1. Deep fried wine Kale
I just don't understand why anyone would want to eat a deep fried leaf but apparently the state fair in Minnesota thought this was necessary. I guess the wine part is ok, but the whole combo just does not work for me. Give me a deep fried cauliflower anyway day of the week.
2. Kool-Aid Pickles
And here I was just trying to get use to deep fried cool-aid! I can not imagine a wonderfully delicious pickle tasting awesome while covered in super sugary, warm juice. I just don't get it and I am asking you nicely to stop.
3. Fried Cactus
Oh yeah, because when I think cactus I think, lets put that shit in my mouth. Why Texas whyyyyy? Why do people think it is ok to deep fry leaves? There is so many better foods to deep fry, like a sandwich. Leave the leaves for the health nerds, and just leave the spiky ones alone completely.
4. BBQ Pickle Ice Cream
Ok Minnesota, you had some good ideas but maybe you should quit while you're ahead. Pickles are staples at BBQs but there is no need to combine them into a dairy!
5. A Chocolate Covered Scorpion
I don't understand again Minnesota. Scorpions are terrifying, we should stick to eating things we aren't scared to death of...like cows. Cows are good.
6. Mealworm Apple
I have one question Minnesota.......JUST WHY!? Has anyone actually brought this ?!

@lizarnone haha I totes agree with you! My sister once ate seasoned crickets and said they tasted like chips, but I was like, uh no thanks, I think I'll stick to actual chips haha
@LizArnone they were just like thick and juicy like a vegetable, in a taco with other veggies and a sauce. So good!
I've eaten cactus before too! They use it a lot in Mexican food and they're usually called nopales. I don't LOVE it, but it's definitely edible and prickly-free lol. (And I'm totally on board for that BBQ pickle ice cream. I love weird flavors!)
Also for the record, I've had a friend tell me Kool-Aid pickles were actually strangely delicious, but I still refuse to try them.
