It’s time for the OC Fair once again and this year, there is a host of new food items to try. Here are the highlights of what I tasted.
From Chicken Charlie’s:
Chicken in a Waffle On a Stick — a huge, whole waffle with strips of fried chicken stuffed within. It is sprinkled with powdered sugar and a portion of maple syrup is served alongside.
Bacon Wrapped Chicken Leg — these chicken drumsticks are wrapped with bacon and fried to perfection. They’re moist on the inside and so crispy on the outside.
Pepsi Cola Donut Dog — a hotdog is sandwiched between a glazed doughnut with caramelized onions and peppers. The mix of salty sweet is not bad, but a tad too sweet for my palate.
French Toast Bacon Bombs — these were possibly my favorite of the entire tasting. Little bite-sized dough is stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped with bacon, served with syrup. Salty sweet goodness at its best (can’t believe I didn’t get a photo of this.)
Pink’s Hot Dogs:
Daenerys Mother of Doggies — this dog is supposed to be super spicy but the one I had didn’t register much heat. I loved the sprouts on top of this hotdog. Love the Game of Thrones reference.
The Lord of the Rings Dog — a hotdog with crispy onions rings and a drizzle of BBQ sauce.
Fair Fix & Fried A Fair:
Fried Butter — these sounded very scary to me, but after a bite, I was hooked. They’re like buttery pancake balls with syrup. Decadent and oh-so-good (I shocked myself on this one).
