DALLAS (AP) - The entries in this year's Big Tex Choice Awards could entice State Fair visitors back to the deep fryer for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
There are Deep Fried Lattes for a morning jump-start, meal options such as fried chili pie or fried guacamole, and a range of crispy deserts including Fried Cookie Dough.
The third annual Big Tex Choice Awards contest on Labor tests the ingenuity of State Fair of Texas concessionaires.
Past Big Tex awards have offered nonfried options, but none of this year's seven entries escaped the fryer.
Michael Levy will debut his family's new Deep Fried Latte, which is a fried pastry topped with cappuccino ice cream, caramel sauce, whipped cream and instant coffee powder.
Other entries include:
-- Zesty Fried Guacamole Bites,
-- Country Pride Peach Cobbler on a Stick,
-- Fernie's Fried Chili Frito Burrito,
-- Mama's Fried Sweet Potato Pie,
-- and B.W.'s Original Fried Banana Pudding.
The fair opens September 28th.
