This year on the food gluttony tour, I got to try even more crazy new fair foods. Every year I think what can they possibly come up with next…but every year I am continually impressed! I have made a picture collage below of a bunch of the new yummy fair food items as well as a couple of fair pictures from this year tossed in. The OC Fair will commence on August 11, 2013, this upcoming Sunday, so make sure you get to go if you have not already or go again for one last time! I will be going Friday night and I want to still check out a few more of the fried goodies before they are gone…especially my favorite from last year the fried strawberry filled Twinkie!! Yum!!
All of the items listed here can be viewed below, but new fair items, as well as a few oldies but goodies I had the opportunity to sample this year from several different vendors include:
|Australian Battered Potatoes||Get them plain or with cheese, sour cream, and bacon bits or with chili and sour cream – Both of these combinations were fabulous…I definitely recommend them!|

that’s the biggest hot dog I have ever seen. It took all my preceding thoughts for the other items
Hahaha…yes 2 pounds!!! Insane..had to get a picture with that one:)
Wow! That’s an amazing fair you have there! Great pics.
Thanks Casey:) It is always a great time:)
i maybe on the wrong coast! the food looks great!too bad that cupcake is a prop..
Sounds like you have many reasons to come and visit:) Don’t they have something like this where you are though as well? 🙂
Fair food is so much fun, and I agree, it’s always an adventure to find out what’s new. The Arizona State Fair is in October, and I look forward to it every year. I must admit, next to the food, I love seeing the animals (city girl that I am) because where else do I get to see goats and bulls?
Most definitely!! I LOVE the animals too…especially the baby pigs and friendly goats as you saw in my pictures! I love going to as many fairs as possible. I have never been to a state fair though..only county..I am sure those are huge:)
Wow, I have never seen this sort of food! The fair that we have every year here in the summer, well the craziest we get is deep fried mini donuts. Which I love. And now I want.
I am sure some of this comes to your fair too…keep an eye out:) I have not tried the deep fried mini doughnuts…I will have to check them out:)
Fun Food once a year…
I totally love your pic with that huge cupcake lol.. Red velvet is def one of my favorites too…
Isn’t the cupcake awesome?:) Red velvet does rock…cannot go wrong with crm cheese frosting:)
I absolutely loved going to the fair when I was younger.
It is still so fun:) You should totally go:)
The sand sculpture look great, where is it?
Dov, every year the OC Fair does an awesome sand sculpture to correspond to the fair theme so this is at the OC Fair inside and it is all made from real sand:)
Oh my goodness, all that deep fried goodness looks amazing! I really need to try to go to the Fair before it ends! Even worse, I live across the street from it too!
Oh Kriselle…what are you waiting for? 🙂 The last weekend of the fair is coming!! I will be there Friday..hope to see you there:)
You must really enjoy yur travels…fair food is wonderful and addicting. No matter how old you are, you have memories of food that you ate at a fair…And it is never as good as it is at a fair!
I do have alot of fun on my excursions:) I do love fair food! I was only able to take a bite of each item..too many great things to devour:)
WOW, I’m going to have to tell my foodie daughter about this one!!
Oh yes! San Diego Fair had alot of the same vendors and goodies.
OMG you are making me sooooooooooooooo hungry. I am trying to lose this last 10 pounds so I can’t even think about stuff like this right now. I bet you came home stuffed! It all looks so good. Thanks for sharing.
Irene, I feel you!! We are travelling to Hawaii in October and my goal is to lose 10 pounds too,..not at this rate…lol
OMG, I love food, so hungry now after reading this and seeing all your pics!
It is all about the fair food:) Thanks for the comment Sharlene:)
Makes my belly hurt looking at all the food but what fun! Gouda, bacon, garlic fries sound like a must try!
Those fries were definitely one of my favorites for new items this year:)
that’s a lot of food! And that big cupcake!! 🙂
Isn’t that big cupcake awesome? It was not real though:) Just a statue..
That is some serious good food and fun!!!!! Can’t wait to go to the small fairs in Lancaster, PA in September or October.
Oh yes! It is always such a blast to go to the fair! We are going again on Friday:)
I have been to the OC Fair Food Market It just doesn’t seem like there is much on this list that is low carb or low fat.
Karen..nothing on this list is, but Chicken Charlie’s does have a few healthy options. There was anew item released last year..It is a pineapple hollowed out and filled with rice and shrimp or rice and chicken:)
