A staple of any fair is of course the food.
With hundreds of different meals to choose from at the North Dakota State Fair, it's pretty difficult to pick just one.
So I took on the difficult task of finding my favorite meal.
Before the fair began, I set a goal for myself to only indulge twice on fair food during the nine day event.
After going over that number in the first day, I set a new goal for myself, pick out my favorite fair food.
I wasn't too sure where to begin, so I simply followed my nose and that led me directly to kettle corn.
I'm glad my sense of smell and taste buds are on the same page, but I wasn't sure where to go next.
So I asked for help.
"Probably the Philly Steak"
"Fresh cut potatoes."
"The corndogs are good. The footlong corndogs."
"Thats the best part of the fair is first coming here and having the Indian tacos."
"The Indian Taco's. They are the best and they are right over their."
A tasty dish, only a few feet away, how could I pass that up?
(Gary Brode, firstname.lastname@example.org) "That is really good. It is certainly the messiest, I have taken two bites and I already have things all over my hands and my face."
The Indian Taco was delicious, but I needed to indulge my sweet tooth.
But what to choose?
"Probably, funnel cake."
"Mini-Donuts of course are always the best."
"Anything deep fried."
"I suppose the malt or the shake"
I was a bit thirsty from the kettle corn, so a malt sounded pretty good and it did not disappoint.
(Gary Brode, email@example.com) "That's terrific."
How could I eat at the fair without getting something dipped in a deep friar?
(Gary Brode, firstname.lastname@example.org) "What fair would be complete without a deep fried twinkie? And now my fair is complete.
While our search for my favorite food may have taken place in the mid-afternoon, that didn't stop me from eating breakfast food.
(Gary Brode, email@example.com) "So almost every single day in the morning, our production crew would have these egg sandwiches. I didn't get try it, let me see why it is so popular. Now I see why they got it every single day."
But it was another hefty sand which which ranked a little above the rest.
(Gary Brode, firstname.lastname@example.org) "I have had kettle corn, deep fried twinkies, chocolate malts,Indian Tacos, egg sandwiches, but ultimately my favorite... the Tubby's burger. For KX News, I'm Gary Brode."
