We Tried The Most Insane Food You Can Get At A County Fair

Bacon Nutella pickles?!?!

Posted on

Hi! We're Lara, Farrah, and Nina and we'd consider ourselves pretty adventurous when it comes to food. After hearing the LA County Fair had some weird (and horrifying) treats, we decided to try it out. Here they are from best to worst:

1. Chicken in a waffle on a stick:



Nina: What is not to love about this? Meat + sweet + stick = perfect. They should sell this at the grocery store.

Farrah: THIS IS AMAZING. Honestly, props to whoever invented it. The fluffy, sweet waffle was perfect with the chicken, and the stick made it easy to eat. Definitely a fair staple.

2. Krispy Kreme triple cheeseburger:


Lara: This is getting embarrassing, guys. This should not exist. Just stick to eating donuts.

Nina: I had to unhinge my jaw to eat this. The sweetness of doughnut, the juiciness of the meat, and the gooeyness of the cheese created a flavor medley that will send me to an early grave, but it's worth it.

Farrah: You know what? This isn’t the worst thing in the world. It’s just messy AF. I definitely would not eat this in its entirety and go on the Tilt-A-Whirl, though.

3. Pickled cheese on a stick:


Lara: This is actually pretty good, yet somehow still disgusting. Would eat again, would regret again.

Nina: The cheese fell out the butt when I bit into it. I felt cheated. Other than that, it was very tasty. It's essentially a fried grilled cheese. I'd eat 10 more.

Farrah: To be honest, I hate pickles. I thought the breading and cheese would make it better, but it did not. If I had to eat the entire thing I would probably vomit.

4. Fried hot sauce:

Lara: This was tasty and spicy and delicious and should be eaten again.

Nina: It's like a little spicy cake, which isn't bad, except that I was expecting something as disgustingly delicious as the fried cheese pickle. IT WASN'T EVEN THAT HOT.

Farrah: I expected to bite into liquid hot sauce, but it honestly just tastes like a hot sauce flavored donut hole. It’s pretty dry, so I guess that’s why they give you even MORE hot sauce to dip it in?

5. Deep-fried butter:


Lara: This is an abomination and should not exist. I will just eat bread and syrup alone next time.

Nina: The stick broke immediately, making the powdered sugar, syrup, and unmelted butter a trifecta of hot mess. I'm the only one who ate an entire one of these, so please feel free to send me heart medication.

Farrah: The first thing that hits your tastebuds is a pancake flavor, but then your teeth sink into that mound of butter. Basically, it tastes like clogged arteries and regret.

6. Deep-fried bacon guacamole:


Lara: No. Just eat chips and guacamole and get the bacon the fuck out.

Nina: The guac was so underwhelming, but the bacon was cooked and fried to perfection. Also, warm guac is kind of gross. Just rip the bacon off and eat it, like I did.

Farrah: RIP, arteries. The bacon is SO overpowering that it seems like the guac has zero taste. Get this if you like bacon more than you like guacamole, tbh.

7. Kool-Aid Pickle:


Lara: Why. The. Fuck. Just no.

Nina: I was shocked by how not disgusting this was. It's a slightly sweeter, slightly less tart pickle. Out of all the pickle things, this was the least gross.

Farrah: Again, I hate pickles, so I don’t really know what I expected. It was repulsive.

8. Bacon Nutella pickle:


Lara: Even if I was high out of my mind, a bacon and Nutella pickle still wouldn’t be something I would think I should eat. Is this a sick joke?

Nina: I'm allergic to nuts so I couldn't eat this one, and I'm glad. It looks like vomit.

Farrah: This was completely vile. NONE of these flavors should ever go together. Burn it.

9. Bacon cotton candy:


Lara: This is the worst thing I’ve ever put in my mouth, I will have nightmares about the moment it touched my tongue for the rest of my life.

Nina: Imagine taking puke and putting it in a cotton candy spinner and you'll have bacon cotton candy. This was, by far, the worst food at this fair.

Farrah: THIS IS OFFENSIVELY FOUL. Who decided this was a good idea???
