“My…heart…tell my family…I died happy…”
~Iowa and Minnesota State Fair Food Critic
Here at America Fun Fact of the Day, we take great pride in the American practice of taking a (usually unhealthy) food and dunking it in bubbling oil until it becomes a borderline public health risk. And as much as we love fried food, we also love its brother, random unhealthy shit we decided to make for a State Fair. Most fried food innovations come from our State Fairs, which follows the fairly American logic of “well if we’re going to try to force Americans to get outside and walk around, we should probably entice them with the ability to eat a deep fried version of something they’ve never eaten fried before.”
2015 has been no exception to this rule, with the Iowa and Minnesota state fairs coming out with lists of their brand new, never seen before unhealthy food items that we are so excited to try as an excuse to test out that new defibrillator we just bought. Oh, and we might as well let you know about some of the more ridiculous ones too.
