Taste of Home has invaded the Wisconsin State Fair, and we’re gobbling up some classic and quirky good eats. Armed with empty stomachs and lots of napkins we’ve been grazing our way through the Fair. Here’s a peek and a few thoughts on some of the eats we’ve tasted so far…
Deep Fried Butter
Every year the Wisconsin State Fair likes to debut a new, and seemingly impossible, deep-fried treat. This year, it’s all about the deep fried butter. Frozen seasoned butter patties are dipped in a thick batter then flash fried – resulting in a little packet of melted butter. Be sure to have plenty of napkins on hand, because upon first bite the molten hot butter oozes out of the fried batter and all over your fingers. The batter is a little chewy, and these little envelopes are practically flavorless, save for the pools of butter that spill out.
Final Verdict: Not worth the hype. We think you could totally skip these talked-about deep-fried patties.
Krispy Kreme Burger
A favorite of Paula Deen, the Krispy Kreme Burger is making an appearance at State Fairs around the country. A rich, glazed donut is sliced in half, then stuffed with a sizzling burger patty and a slice of cheese. Surprisingly bland, this treat would be better with a seasoned breakfast sausage than a plain burger.
Final Verdict: So-so. While the Krispy Kreme donut is warm, soft, and sugary, the rest of this gut busting item can be left behind.
Deep Fried Snicker Bars
Melty. Gooey. Totally delicious. This State Fair classic has hands-down a favorite. Upon first bite, you get a mouthful of that signature sweet-salty goodness that Snicker bars are known for. Wrapped in a pancake-like batter, this chocolaty treat is incredibly rich. We recommend you share!
Final Verdict: Absolute Must. If you’re heading to the Fair, make room for the decadent delight.
Deep Fried Oreos
Tall glass of milk required! These little chocolate pillows of heaven are sprinkled with a light dusting of powdered sugar and have such an intense chocolate flavor, that would satisfy just about anyone with a sweet tooth. The sweet batter blends beautifully with the chocolate Oreos, creating a cake-like texture similar to a whoopie pie.
Final Verdict: Trust me. You’ll be glad you indulged in these little gems.
