Holy moly. Can’t you just taste it? Look at that. You can taste it. Stop licking the screen. We already tried, and it doesn’t work. It just tastes like the computer screen. :(

This list is becoming increasingly difficult to make. Think it would be best if we just stopped here and OH WHO ARE WE KIDDING?? LET'S KEEP GOING HAHAHA!!!

They finally did it. They finally broke us. They took the best breakfast food ever to exist, and then they went ahead and deep fried it. YOU MANIACS!! YOU GENIUS MANIACS!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!

5. Bacon Bombs

Hey, know what’s “the bomb”?

We'll tell you. It’s bacon, in the form of these little bites wrapped around fried dough. Haha, amazing joke, right? Not as amazing as these bacon bombs though.

4. Funnel Cake

You thought we forgot funnel cake, didn’t you? Of course we didn’t forget funnel cake. We're just going to let this photo and your favorite funnel cake memory speak for themselves.

JK. Didn't pass out, yet.

Anyway, here it is. Number one. The crown jewel on the list of the best fair foods. The holy grail. Ladies and gentlemen…we give you…the deep-fried Oreo. It is perfection…deep fried. Yeah, baby.

There's only one place you can find ALL of these dreamy treats (and more!!) this summer: the OC Fair! It's going on July 17 through August 16, so bring your friends and indulge yourself!
