Is there a better summer outing than a trip to the state fair? Don’t bother screaming an answer at your computer, because we can’t hear you and you’re wrong if you disagree. What better place is there to people watch, ride rickety roller coasters, and eat pounds of insane food that you can’t get anywhere else?!

Our favorite part about spending all day at a fair is definitely the wacky food that doesn’t exist anywhere else in polite society. Insane creations like pickle dogs (for the uninitiated, that’s a deep fried pickle with a hotdog inside), and literally deep fried anything are waiting around every corner for your feasting pleasure. If you’ve never been to a state fair before, you can make the rookie mistake of buying the wrong food and getting stuck with garbage instead of something tasty. That's why we’ve put this list of the best fair food together. You can thank us later.

With so many state fair food options, it can be tough to choose exactly which artery-clogging delicacy to try.  That’s why we’ve created the perfect menu for your state fair feasting pleasure. Some of the items on this list might seem a little weird, but roll with it. Your taste buds will thank you. Vote on which fair food you think is the best, and let us know which one of these monstrosities you’ve feasted upon. And if there’s anything we left off, you better give us the deets!

Funnel cake might be our favorite food of all time. The only reason we don't eat it every day is because we'd turn into a hybrid of fried dough and human, and we couldn't get any work done if we were gnawing at our doughy fingers all day. Seriously guys, the fried dough, powdered sugar combo is the perfect fair food. You can munch on it all day, or if you're feeling like champ, you can share it with your sweetie.

A giant sized scoop of vanilla ice cream between two waffles and covered with powdered sugar? Make sure you bring some friends to help you polish this off or you'll never wake up from that sugar crash.

You can't go wrong with a deep-fried corn-battered hot dog - it's not humanly possible. Slather it in mustard, dip it in ketchup, we don't care what you do as long as you eat it.

We know there's a lot of drama in the underground cheese curd world, but we don't care if these beauties squeak or not. As long as they're deep fried and going into our mouths.
