I hope you didn’t gain a couple pounds from looking at these pictures! I know had to skip a couple lunches, double up on exercise, and eat a couple extra bowls of oatmeal to clean out the arteries. Although the fair comes by once a year, so live it up and try the new food items. :) The OC Fair is in its final week, so get your fill until next year!

  7. Just like you Tom, I will go for the one foot sausage

  8. Now I am hungry again and I just ate dinner – you swine 😉

    They say you can read the menu even if you are on a diet. I think my arteries just got a lot more clogged.

  10. The glazed doughnut sloppy Joe was the most interesting food item. I got hungry looking at all that fair food!

  11. I can’t even look at that food. It looks good but I would never eat most of it.

  12. I found something at the OC Fair this year that was NOT better with bacon. So sad! It was the Bacon Rootbeer at Bacon Affair. It sure looked pretty but its no bueno.

  13. wow, we Canadians are pretty tame next to you guys. I have never heard of any of this kind of thing! We do like our bacon though!

  14. mmmmm. Licking my lips reading this!

  15. Alka-seltzer anyone?? Just looking at all the food is something else.

  16. all of my favorite foods here on one page, yummy!! the fair is in town here for the next two weeks gota get over there this week end.

  17. I think the hotdogs were probably the weirdest. Not sure I would try them unless I were in a courageous mood, lol…

  18. Wow! Looks like a fun time trying all that!

  19. I used to live in that area. Sure miss going to that amazing fair! Thanks for sharing.

  20. Looks amazing. Our fair is coming here soon, but we don’t have food that great. Wonder what crazy concept they will fry up this year?!
