EPIC: Minnesota State Fair Has Deep-Fried Breakfast On-a-Stick and Jello Salad

It’s that time of year again. Rusty roller coasters form under the blazing summer sun. Enormous SpongeBob plush dolls hang above rigged Ball & Basket! games. Everything from Twinkies to last night’s leftovers get deep-fried and sold for a Hamilton.

Yes, the food. Fairs are prime breeding grounds for “insane” eats that cater to our thrill-seeking arteries. The Minnesota State Fair has mastered this arena — slinging the usual funnel cakes and turkey legs alongside new, er, groundbreaking offerings.
