Eating your way through the NY State Fair
Eating through the NY State Fair
Desperate for a greasy treat? The New York State Fair was the perfect place to satisfy your every summer craving. Jam-packed with Instagram-worthy snacks, the Fair had something for everyone. Here are some thoughts on the feast this year to keep in mind next time the Fair’s in town.
The Best of Both Worlds: Deep-Fried Oreos
Hands down, deep-fried oreos are the best crossover treat the Fair has to offer. The frier made the oreo soft, allowing it to melt in your mouth. If you’re an adventurous fan of funnel cake, the deep-fried oreo just might be for you.
Prime Insta Content: Cotton Candy
Looking to brighten up your feed with pastel hues? Cotton candy is your new best friend. Doubling as the anecdote for a sweet-tooth and the perfect prop, its only downfall was its stickiness. Luckily, restrooms are placed throughout the Fair, leaving you with no excuse to not grab cotton candy next year.
The AMC-Upgrade: Kettle Corn
We all know and love the popcorn at our local movie theaters. The Fair elevates this classic treat by adding extra sugar into the mix, creating kettle corn. Poparazzi Kettle Corn took the liberty of warning passersby that its product is addictive, a truth that became quickly evident to its customers. Once you start, it’s hard to stop… in the best way possible, of course.
The Rite of Passage: Fried Favorites
Hot dogs, chicken tenders, wings, and corn dogs could be found at the heart of the Fair, as pictured. Order your American favorites with a side of fries and you’ll be ready to stomach the daunting rides the Fair has to offer. Don’t eat too much, of course, if you’re planning to sample a few of the previously listed treats or you may leave with regrets.
If this menu overview is giving you FOMO, make sure to mark your calendar for next year! Wouldn’t want to miss out on eating your way through the fair two years in a row!
