You read that right, the winner of the “Most Creative” food item at the State Fair of Texas® is Deep Fried Bubblegum. Now it’s not actual bubblegum, so when you read what is in it you it might sound a bit more appetizing.
Deep Fried Bubblegum is – “A light as a feather bubble gum flavored marshmallow is dipped in batter and lightly fried to perfection. Decorated with a swirl of icing. A final sprinkling of powdered sugar completes this treat! It will blow you away!” It was created by the people over at Granny’s Funnel Cakes on Coliseum Drive.
Along with Deep Fried Bubblegum the Big Tex® Choice Award for “Best Taste” was announced. The winner was ‘Buffalo Chicken in a Flapjack’. It is described as, “A buffalo chicken strip is coated in flapjack batter, rolled in jalapeno bread crumbs, deep fried to a golden brown, skewed, and served with a side of syrup. Crowd pleasing appetizer or a meal in itself!”
