Come Hungry To The Iowa State Fair
Fair season is in full swing. The Rock Island County Fair is this week, other fairs in and around the area are going strong, and the Mississippi Valley Fair is a few weeks away.
One thing that fairs are known for is the food. The Iowa State Fair is pry the granddaddy for foodies. I think that's where I first learned about fried whatever. Fried Oreos, Fried Twinkies, giant turkey legs...my mouth is watering right now.
This year will not disappoint. According to WQAD, the Iowa State Fair has added some new food items this year. The one that caught my eye is called Pork Almighty. Its beer battered fries covered in queso cheese, smothered in smoked shredded pork, topped with green peppers and onions, and shredded cheese. Ok, I'll take mine without onions and green peppers.
Get a complete list of all the delicious culinary treats the Iowa State Fair has to offer, and their locations here.
I don't know if my friends at Ultra90 will like me eating so much fair food.
