It is true; you can deep-fry anything, even sweet tea! Head on over to the Texas State Fair to get their signature tea served up fried. They somehow brew tea and mix it into a custard filling. It is then coated in Graham cracker crust, deep fried and topped with sweet tea syrup.

Krispy Kreme Hamburger

Alabama offers one of the most intense fair foods. The Krispy Kreme Hamburger is a quarter pound hamburger with bacon, cheese and two glazed Krispy Kremes used as buns. The hamburger has 1,100 calories and 67 grams of fat.

Hot Beef Sunday

You can find a hot beef Sunday at the fair in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Indiana’s Beef Cattle Associated invented this meat style Sunday. It is layered with mashed potatoes, marinated beef, gravy, cheese with corn sprinkled on top with a cherry tomato.

Deep Fried Doritos

It is exactly what is sounds like, Nacho Cheese Doritos covered in battered and then deep-fried to perfection. The chips somehow get lighter and flakier after they are fried and are delicious served up with ranch. You can find this perfect snack at the Orange County Fair.

Fried Jellybeans

The fair in West Springfield, Massachusetts serves up fried candy. They take jellybeans, dip them in batter and then deep-fry them. Many say it is like a mix of candy and funnel cake.
