heart attack guaranteed
now i've seen, smelled and heard it all! remember when you were a kid and you used to go to the fair and eat cotton candy, candied apples, elephant ears, hotdogs and hamburgers? well times have changed my friends. what we ate back then at the fair is tame compared to the offerings they have now. my drive home from work takes me by the florida state fair grounds and guess what? it was opening day yesterday. i had my sunroof open (big mistake) and the smell of grease hit me like a ton of bricks. i'm not just saying that because i'm saint kristie in the eating department. i didn't eat that nastiness even when i wasn't "into" health and fitness.
here are some of the fine offerings you can eat at the fair this year:
~over the top Krispy Kreme doughnut burger-a burger served with doughnuts as the bun...WTF?
~any candy bar or twinkie deep friend (aren't they bad enough without being fried?)
~chocolate dipped bacon
~deep fried butter-pats or balls of butter, your choice (gag reflex kicking in now)
