Every year I’m amazed by the new developments in the category of bizarre fair food – i.e. the nouveau junk offerings at festivals and state fairs.
Spaghetti and meatballs on a stick
Last year it was spaghetti and meatballs on a stick, and this year someone has figured out how to fry butter and serve it on a stick (pictured in lead photo). It turned up at the Iowa State fair recently.
They took a stick of butter, put it on a stick, dipped it in a cinnamon batter, and deep fried it. But it’s not over: Then, just for the heck of it, they drizzled more butter on top. It looks a little like a corn dog.
The fryer melts most of the butter, so it just makes the batter EXTREMELY buttery. It sells for $4.
I’m thinking some Democrat came up with the dish to kill off the Republicans who were holding a widely publicized straw poll during the event.
