Deep Fried Twinkie? Why, Yes Please!

There is nothing quite like a deep-fried Twinkie... well... lemme rephrase that... there is nothing quite like your first deep-fried Twinkie.

On Thursday night, Lucas and I went to the Utah State Fair with Emily and the kiddos (this was before Emily and Jeremy flew out late that night) and I had a wad of cash in my wallet.

Now... when you go to the fair with small children and no spouse there are very few things you can blow your cash on (mind you... State Fair is like Mecca for people who LOVE blowing cash); I could not ride the Kamakaze, or throw pennies at goldfish, so instead... I had to buy food. And not just any food, terrible, deep-fried, sugary, unsanitary, delicious, food. The Elephant Ears were out of sight, so I decided I was going for the gold. I was gonna be brave (and possible gonna go into cardiac arrest). I was gonna eat a deep-fried Twinkie!

I'll never be the same.

It was pure Heaven.

As you can see... Lucas was a big fan too. I mean... who wouldn't be!? Greasy, sugary, creamy. I think I've found my new Fair Food. And it's a good thing the fair only comes once a year!

So we sat and ate junk food (there were apples and peanut butter sandwiches mixed in there too... so you can stop judging me now) while watching the Rodeo.

This also happened to be Lucas' first Rodeo and he's hooked. I couldn't help but smile at the joy and excitement he experience when the horses came out. He kept screaming: "Neigh! Neigh"! And to boot, there were ambulance nearby, which is a huge bonus in Lucas' book. Animals and EMT vehicles: win.

It was a fun, sugary night before kicking off our weekend and though it feels so far away already, I'm happy we were able to enjoy just another great aspect of this city. The people were friendly, the fairgrounds were clean and the snacks and entertainment were divine.

  1. I don't think I've eaten a Twinkie in 10 years. You're making me want one :)

  2. Oh man, this makes me want to go to the fair. We haven't gone since our last autumn in Texas, where the Texas State Fair is a HUGE DEAL. That last year we went, the big new foods were chicken fried bacon and "fried butter".
