State fairs are strange places. They’re home to things like butter sculptures, produce contests, and livestock competitions. It’s all very odd.
But if you like fried foods, the local fair is the place to be. If you’re not a fan of battered sweets, there are other options out there to whet your appetite. When you see these snacks, you’ll be at your local fairgrounds and your doctor’s office in no time at all!
1. Deep-fried Kool-Aid
2. Kool-Aid pickle
Somehow less appetizing than deep-fried Kool-Aid.
3. Deep-fried jelly sandwich
Because it was the last thing we hadn’t fried.
4. Deep-fried peanut butter and jelly
Actually, scratch that. We also hadn’t fried peanut butter yet.
5. Deep-fried mac and cheese
It almost looks edible!
6. Donut cheeseburger
Because you love visiting the cardiologist.
7. Deep-fried peanut butter cups
8. Deep-fried butter
Okay, this one requires literally no effort. There’s no joke here. This is it.
9. Deep-fried Cadbury eggs
A seasonal treat.
10. Deep-fried pizza
When cooking in an oven just won’t do!
11. Fried pies
I guess these could be considered dessert samosas?
12. Deep-fried cookie dough
This is almost as bad as fried butter. Almost.
13. Chocolate-covered bacon
Finally, an item that’s not fried! I guess that means it’s healthy, right?
14. Deep-fried Twinkie
Aren’t Twinkies already fried? Is this…fry-ception?
15. Deep-fried Mars bar
For a little weirdness from across the pond!
16. Deep-fried cheese curds
If you add twice-fried french fries and fried gravy, you have yourself some deep-fried poutine!
17. Deep-fried beer
That’s it. I quit drinking. I’m done.
18. Deep-fried chicken wantons
A taste of the East meets the style of the South.
19. Fried avocado
Because screw your health.
20. Deep-fried cheesecake
As if the original wasn’t unhealthy enough.
21. Deep-fried ice cream sundae
Do you find sundaes lacking in the cholesterol department? Not anymore!
22. Deep-fried latte
No, you cannot get it with soy milk.
23. Wolf tracks ice cream
Full of yummy fudge and candy like moose tracks, but somehow worse for your heart.
24. Sauteed alligator
Lightly seasoned for optimal flavor.
25. Deep-fried moon pie
This is the pinnacle of fried nastiness. Humanity has peaked.

You could essentially eat all three meals and dessert straight from a deep fryer. But why would you? You’d miss out on chocolate-covered bacon and Kool-Aid pickles, and no one wants that!
If you just can’t get fried Kool-Aid out of your head, you can bring this travesty into your home with a simple recipe:
