State Fair of Texas Announces Its Big Tex Choice Awards
Every year, the State Fair of Texas serves up some strange combinations of food placed in a deep fryer. This year is no different.
This year's finalist for the Big Tex Choice Awards according to NBC 5 in Dallas are:
Deep Fried Chicken Noodle Soup on a Stick - Soup on a stick? It's the familiar chicken noodle soup, fried into a ball with a spot for some broth on each ball.
Deep Fried Froot Loops - Just like it sounds, our favorite childhood cereal fried with whipped marshmallow and topped with a glaze and powdered sugar.
Fat Smooth - This is three Belgium mini cream puffs fried and covered in powered sugar and a chocolate and caramel sauce.
Fernie's Fried Texas Sheet Cake - It's a fudge brownie fried with cocoa puffs, panko and cinnamon then glazed with a dark icing made with Dr. Pepper. It is served with pecans, whip cream and a strawberry.
Funnel Cake bacon Queso Burger - Two funnel cakes as the "buns" with a burger patty, bacon and queso then dusted with powered sugar.
Gulf Coast Fish Bowl - This is a drink. Nerds candy on the bottom, blue alcoholic punch (not specified which alcohol is used) topped with a pineapple slice.
Pinot Noir Popcorn - Popcorn mixed with Pinot Noir wine powder and cheddar cheese.
Surfin' Turfin' Tator Boat - Lobster and steak topped with cheddar and romano cheese and stuffed into a baked potato.
Texas Fajita Fries - Fried beef fajita strips seasoned with sriracha in a bread cone served with Texas toothpicks (fried onions and jalapenos) and a side of pico and sour cream guacamole hot sauce.

Holy food coma Batman!
