If you happen to be around Fair Park in Dallas, Texas between September 28 and October 21, be sure to check out the State Fair of Texas! It's well known now for it's ability to concoct all new and crazy deep fried creations every year as part of its "Big Tex Choice Awards". Remember last years? Deep Fried Coke?
Well the winner of this years "Most Creative" prize was the "Deep Fried Latte", A delicately fried, light puff pastry, with a hint of coffee, is topped with cappuccino ice cream, sweet syrup, whipped cream and instant coffee sprinkles.
Stay tuned, there'll be more stories on the Fair in the coming weeks!
