The Wisconsin State Fair started yesterday. I’ve never actually been the fair so according to NPR, I can’t call myself a real Wisconsinite.
Now, I rarely disagree with NPR, but umm….I’m all real baby. Born and raised Wisconsin girl here. And proud of it.
I mean maybe I don’t have a cheese hat and I don’t even eat cheese. And I can’t drink beer (but I do love it!) And maybe I didn’t marry right out of high school and start having babies right away. (Stereotype much, Katie?)
But I DO love the Packers, the Brewers, and brats. Take that, NPR.
So the fair is known for the ridiculous deep fried concoctions, on sticks naturally. This morning I heard about the newest addition and I hate to say, I threw up a little just hearing about it. I mean, come on. There are limits people.
Behold, The Fat Elvis:
It’s a peanut butter cup, wrapped in bacon, dipped in banana batter, placed on a stick and then deep fried.
You eat it, and then you barf. And probably die.
Again, there are limits, people. This right here is well beyond the limits of propriety.
The Lakeshore Brewery, also in Milwaukee, has pulled out all the stops in honor of the fair being in town.
They are rolling out both Sweet Potato Fries with Marshmallow Dipping Sauce, which I’d never heard of, but of course bloggers have already made these and posted recipes to them. We’re so ahead of the game. And by we I mean all those other (good) bloggers.
You can also get a Beer Float, which is exactly what it sounds like. Because why have just a beer or just a scoop of ice cream when you can have BOTH. In one glass!!
Missy, this one’s for you – Deep Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. On a stick. Of course.
That’s how we roll here. We put things that shouldn’t be on sticks onto sticks, we douse them in sugary batter and then fry them up in hot oil.
Consider the gaunlet thrown.
What’s the grossest and/or best thing you’ve ever eaten on a stick? Deep fried?
