Fair Food and More at the South Florida Fair
|Make sure you go on the rides before you start to pig out.|
All that entertainment is great, but let's face it -- you don't go to the fair for rodeo shows or to win a giant SpongeBob SquarePants. You don't even go to see the world's smallest woman or the Mongolian death worm on display (yes, there is a Mongolian death worm on display, and no, it's not worth the two bucks to see it). You go for the food!
The smells of grease and fried... well... everything that mingle with the sugary scents of cotton candy and ice cream. You go to the fair to taste your old favorites like kettle corn, hot dogs, and funnel cake and to try new oddities like fried buckeyes, donut burgers, and pork parfaits (yes, I said pork parfaits).
We sent the search party ahead of you and scouted out the best and newest fair treats and novelties for your delight. And while these delectable treats come with calories and fat content aplenty -- relax. The fair comes but once a year. So bring your wallet, your appetite, and your elastic-waist stretch pants and have an extra helping of pork parfait! Oink, oink!
The Krispy Kreme Donut Burger: a four-ounce all-beef patty with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and raw onion between two grilled, glazed Krispy Kremes.
The Silver Dollar Bakery bakes fresh cinnamon rolls constantly.
Fried green tomatoes, pickles, and green beans at Griff's. Best seller? The fried pickles.
