Weird Funfair Foods

Weird Funfair Foods

5th August 2020 0 By jarm69

There are some weird funfair foods available at funfairs around the world. Some of them quite interesting and possibly viable in the UK. Others just plain strange. Many of our offerings such as Candy Floss Carts or Corn Dogs can trace their heritage back to the USA. So we are always on the lookout for new lines Stateside.

Here are a selection of our favourite Stateside offerings ;

Deep Fried Beer
Texas Fried Beer

The Texans actually won an award for this one, proving just about anything can be deep fried.

Frozen Pickle Brine

Kansas State Fair’s frozen pickle brine. I bet this one is super sour.

Grilled Python

One enterprising vendor added grilled python to his offerings when he heard California’s State Fair was demanding more adventurous food offerings.

Cheeseburger With Fried Ice Cream

Only in Florida. A cheeseburger with deep fried ice cream. Mains and dessert all in one.

Muddy Pie From Ohio
Muddy Pie From Ohio

From the State of Ohio, what is it with Americans and heart attack inducing food. Called a muddy pie, it is fried bacon coated in chocolate.

Krispy Kreme Hamburger

Alabama make their attempt at clogging your arteries with this concoction. A hamburger served between two Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

Alligator On A Stick

Illinois offer this, alligator on a stick. So you can visit the State Fair’s alligator show, then eat the stars.

Deep Fried Road Kill

Take a bow Oregon, with their entry, deep fried road kill. We aren’t sure if it is actual road kill, or just the name, but we wouldn’t put anything past those crazy Yanks.

Chocolate Covered Scorpion
Chocolate Covered Scorpion

Another entry from the Golden State. Chocolate covered Scorpions. I suppose if you have a local resource you might as well make use of it.

Deep Fried Pepsi
Deep Fried Pepsi

South Carolina’s answer to the texas deep fried beer. They inject balls of fried dough with Pepsi syrup, dust them in sugar and add more syrup as a topping.

Deep Fried Starbucks Coffee

Is there anything the Americans won’t deep fry? San Diego offered up your favourite coffee brand fried into doughballs.

$100 Hot Dog
$100 Hot Dog

The Calgary Stampede saw the introduction of the $100 hot dog. Yep, that’s right, a whole $100 for a foot long dog.

WTF, I hear you ask, how does a hot dog get to be $100. Well, it might be the use of Kobe beef. A high end Japanese delicacy. Or perhaps the Louis XIII brandy that the beef is soaked in (that’s about £2500 a bottle). And the truffle and lobster topping doesn’t help in keeping the price down.

So whilst we will keep an eye on the weird funfair foods available across the pond, I can’t see us actually using any of the current offerings.

If you fancy something more sensible, say hot dog cart hire then get in touch.
