Strangest State Fair Food

Texas: Fried Butter

Kevin Brown/State Fair of Texas

Fried Butter
Texas State Fair

It’s perhaps no surprise that some of the most egregiously artery-troubling fair food was invented in Texas, home of fried Coke and fried butter, courtesy of longtime fair concessionaire Abel Gonzales Jr. It sounds worse than it is: a “healthy” pat of butter battered and flash fried to produce a warm biscuit with a buttery center.

Where: Dallas, TX
When: Fair opens late September.
