Get Ready for Deep-Fried Kool-Aid at the Fair

The San Diego County Fair opens June 10 with just about any food you can think of on a stick or deep-fried.

Last year it was deep-fried butter. The year before that, chocolate-covered bacon. This year the food buzz at the is likely to be deep-fried Kool-Aid. 

I had the chance to try out a number of fair foods at the San Diego County Fair's media night. I thought the deep-fried Kool-Aid was great! It's basically like a warm doughnut hole with a gooey red center. I also tried the deep-fried brownie and took a bite of a corndog covered in chocolate. The brownie was delicious, and the corndog was OK. Basically, anything deep-fried and dipped in chocolate will taste good. 

Also available deep-fried: corn on the cob and ribs!

The giant cinnamon rolls still remain a good choice for indulgence, and my overall favorite thing I tried was a veggie kabob (not fried but heavily seasoned with massive amounts of sodium, I'm guessing).

The fresh cut potato chips with cheese sause were delish!
The craziest I've heard of is the peanut butter & jelly sandwich. I dont know about delish on that?

You'll have to try and let me know what you think. I thought it was good!
