NC State Fair!

It's almost time for the fair, one of my favorite events each year. Who's going and what foods are you most excited about?

I'll definitely get my traditional treats - a ham biscuit from one of the churches, sweet potato fries, and NCSU ice cream. The Fair website has a list of new foods this go 'round and a map with all of the food stands, rides, and exhibits marked.

I'm most excited about beignets showing up this year (far better than funnel cake, IMHO), but may also try the chocolate covered twinkie. I saw an interview with the woman behind the twinkies - they are frozen, then dipped in chocolate and rolled in your choice of coconut, sprinkles, or nuts. She said the frozen creme filling is like soft serve ice cream.
