Five Must-Have OC Fair Foods

What’s the best part of the OC Fair? The FOOD! It’s the one place where you need to go without counting calories, let loose, and have fun. The fair food keeps getting bigger, better, and more unique every year… and this year is one of the best yet. When making plans to visit the OC Fair with your family this year, these are five foods that you have to sink your taste buds into.

Making Deep Fried Butter

I’ll admit that when I first heard of the fried butter, I was nervous about trying it. The sound of it was gross, and I was reluctant to take a bite of the fried fair food. My daughter was the first to try it, and when she continued to take more bites until the last crumb was gone, I knew it had to be good. I closed my eyes, took a bite, and oh my!! It was a ball of warm goodness. I couldn’t believe it – but it was one of the best things I tried while at the OC Fair.

If you like Doritos, then you’re going to love this fried fair food. There are two versions, and the surf n’ turf is the best. Inside of a plastic Doritos bag are, of course, Doritos, steak, lobster, and creamy nacho sauce. My daughter loved this so much that she barely let anyone else in our group have a taste. It was an explosion of flavors, and one of the best fair foods of the year.

Pepsi Donut Dog

Found at Bacon-a-Fair
Sweet & savory come together with this delicious fair food. Inside of a soft donut is a Pepsi glazed hot dog that is topped with veggies. It was my fair main dish at the fair this year, and you’ve gotta try it.

Everything tastes better on a stick.. right? At Chicken Charlies, you can get a giant waffle on a stick that is stuffed with fried chicken. That’s right – fried chicken. You’ll definitely get your fair food face on while walking around the fair nibbling on this bad boy.
