I Remain Disgusting

My head is spinning from the food hangover that occurs after Fair Day, so I'll keep this brief.  For your horror reading pleasure, here is my annual, what I ate at the LA County Fair list (Warning: It is not for the faint of heart):

A curious chocolate nut bar
Colossal cone of curly fries
2 Beers
Fried PB&J
Ear of roasted corn
French dip sandwich
Deep fried bacon cheese burger
Pulled pork sandwich
Chocolate covered marshmallow
Garlic Parmesan fry bread
Spicy beef Korean taco
Deep fried Oreo
Deep fried Klondike bar
Chocolate covered bacon
Kettle corn
Chocolate covered banana with nuts

Here are links to the 2007, 2008 and 2009 lists.

Deep fried pb&j?!?! Say it ain't so! YUM! Was it chunky or creamy pb? What kind of jelly? I want one!!!

And I'm also curious on the logistics of frying a Klondike bar...

SciFi Dad said...

No deep fried weirdness at our fair, but I did consume a couple hot dogs, some summer sausage, butterfly chips, donuts, saltwater taffy, and butter tarts at mine.

That One Mom...The PB&J was great. Creamy pb, strawberry jelly. In terms of the Klondike, they batter it and fry it so the edges are warm, but the center is still cold. It's a really great contrast of sensations.

SciFi...There's something about the fair that makes it way too easy to eat way too much.

There's no one thing that really freaks me out on this list. But the sheer volume has me groaning in sympathy. You should see if Pepto Bismol wants to sponsor your blog. ;P

This is always one of my favorite posts of the year. I assume the Korean taco was free of cilantro.

How was the chocolate bacon?

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Zen...I pre-loaded with Pepto this year. Good idea.

YEO...The fair is one of the glorious places where there is little to no cilantro. This Kogi knock off had lettuce instead. And the chocolate covered bacon was good. It's served cold, so the chocolate is nice and crisp and you get a hint of smokey bacon flavor in it.

Wow! All this in one day????

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Sundar...Yes. I refer to you the title of the post. I'm acutely aware.

Did you eat the whole thing or did you just take bites and share with others?

Vancetastic said...

(he asked knowingly)

If you would have eaten through one grean leaf after that, then you would have felt much better.

....and turned into a beautiful butterfly.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Vance...Well, I wanted to eat everything myself, but I realized how big it was and...you know.

James...Ha! That's exactly why I didn't. Butterflies suck. Long live glutenous caterpillars!

Papa K said...

Ah... chocolate covered bacon. I saw that at the Oklahoma State Fair too. How was it? One of those would probably shave a couple days off your life fo' sho'.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Papa...I would prefer to live in denial about the abuse I inflict on myself. And the chocolate covered bacon is pretty tasty. If you like that whole salty/sweet thing. And I do.

Multi-tasking Mommy said...

Hmmm....I feel a bit (not much) better about what I ate at our Fair!

Daddy Geek Boy said...

MTM...If my gluttony can help just a little bit, than it was all worth it.
