Jello, Is This On? Big Tex Choice Winner Announced for State Fair Food
It's a bit of a shock, but no big surprise as the winner of the Bit Tex Choice was the front runner.
The finalist were...DEEP FRIED BACON BURGER DOG SLIDER-ON-A-STICK...CARIBBEAN PINEAPPLE KORN-A-COPIA...DEEP FRIED PULLED PORK "FUNYUN" DINGS...FERNIE'S DOWN HOME CHICKEN POT PIE POCKET...FRIED JELLO...INJECTABLE GREAT BALLS OF BBQ...SOUTHERN FRIED CHICKEN & DUMPLINS...and STATE FAIR COOKIE FRIES.
All were tasty, but is seems this year it's not a State Fair without Deep Fried Jello.
All it takes, besides a deep fryer, is a ball of cherry jello that's been dipped in batter and then flash fried. Topped with a generous helping of powdered sugar, whipped cream and a cherry.
This concoction was created by Ruth Hauntz.
Isaac Rousso, who gave us the award-winning dishes The Fried Cuban Roll and The Smoky Bacon Margarita, won "Most Creative" with his State Fair Cookie Fries.
Don't know if you'll see any of these creations at the Central Texas State Fair this weekend, buy I'm sure you'll see something you'll want to eat.
