I love corn on the cob with salt and butter
I love corn on the cob too but it has to be in season. None of that frozen stuff.
Jersey sweet corn from a roadside stand on the way to the shore is the best.
I love shucking corn next to the MILFs at the store
I've still never tried grilling it. It's just too good when I boil it.
What does it mean when this is the only thread I am interested in on the first page?
I know. I don't think anybody actually prefers creamed corn.
My mom used to make some kind of deal that had cream corn and a cracker crumb topping and baked it in the oven. It was good but I have no idea what it was called or how to make it.
Oh I've seen that. Sort of a creamed corn casserole.
Fried Bacon Cream Cheese Balls. These are tempura battered savory bombs of goodness that should see a lot of popularity with fair goers. Like their cousin the Bacon Cream Cheese Bomb (also sold at Hot Wisconsin Cheese) they’re cream cheese that has been infused with pieces of bacon, but the smaller portions will encourage sharing.
Beef Brisket Sandwiches. The Ormics are bringing serious meat to the fair, and this is one of many examples. The well-flavored smoked beef brisket sandwich is a handful of meaty goodness that you can have with barbecue sauce or without. A two-hander. You’ll find the Ormics on the northwest corner of the big Food Court intersection.
Beer Butt Chicken.The best thing to have at the fair quadrupled with a Coke, but grilled and not deep fried. (Sorry, I felt the need to make a Blues Brothers reference there). Back from last year.
Fried Butter. Okay, here’s another idea from other fairs that has arrived in Arkansas somewhat adulterated. Yes, it’s fried butter -- but instead of being a sweet butter like the cherry butter and cinnamon honey sugar butter at the Texas State Fair, this is literally a stick of butter that’s been battered like a corndog and deep fried (these are half-size versions for the preview). What you get is a half-melted stick of butter in the middle of a mass of cornmeal -- or, you could look at it as a big piece of cornbread on a stick with the butter in the middle. You’ll find it at CM Steakhouse next to the Hall of Industry.
Cabritas Wraps.Yes, they’re back. These scrumptious tortillas full of shredded goat meat are one of the healthiest foods of the Arkansas State Fair. The goat is roasted rather than deep fried, and goat is typically lower in fat than other meat on the hoof. Find it at the Feed Trough back down by the Rabbit Barn.
Fried Cheese. Boy, you can find fried cheese a lot of places, but you can’t find it done in any more combinations than what you’ll find at Hot Wisconsin Cheese. This year the stand is on the Gate 5 side entrance of the Food Court, and there will likely be a line. Among the many options available are Cheddar, Swiss, Mozzarella and Jalapeno Cheese. The Jalapeno Cheese is a white cheese with embedded peppers that has a late and strong heat to it.
Cheeseburger on a Stick. Yes, that's cheese within ground beef within a corndog. Yes, it's good. Dip it in ketchup and be happy.
Chicken and Beef Kebabs. You can’t get more meaty than meat, right? The Ormics are cooking up nicely spiced Chicken Kebabs and Beef Kebabs at their stand inside the Food Court. You’ll smell and hear the sizzling meat from a distance. These folks use their own spices to offer a great meat-on-a-stick experience.
Chocolate Cream Cheese Bites. Decadently rich, this is definitely something to share with the chocolate lovers in your life. They're back for a second round at Hot Wisconsin Cheese.
Chocolate Funnel Cake Sundae. It actually has another name, I think -- but I kept trying to write it down and it kept getting garbled. In essence, this is a sundae made with a chocolate funnel cake as its base with strawberries on top. And it is very, very good.
Corndogs. You can get them a lot of different places, but really, the best ones come from Superdog. End of story.
Deep Fried Corn-on-the-Cob. My photographer’s favorite dish, it’s a big long cob of corn given the corndog treatment. It’s a good combination. The one complaint -- it’s so big and heavy (we’re talking a two pound dish) that it might fill you up before you can get to the other fair food out on the Midway.
Deep Fried Egg on a Stick.Yes, those hard boiled eggs treated like weiners getting the corndog treatment are back again thanks to the folks at Hot Wisconsin Cheese.
Deep Fried Egg Rolls. In my opinion, the breakout neat new and tasty fair food at the Arkansas State Fair. They are meatless egg rolls packed with cabbage and carrots tempura battered and deep fried and served up with sauce. Somehow, the battering process makes these egg rolls less greasy than their non-battered average counterparts at Asian restaurants. A real winner. You’ll find them at Sissy’s next to Paizi’s in the Food Court.
Funny Bones. They’re just a funny name for something else -- chocolate peanut butter injected deep fried Twinkies. As if a fried Twinkie wasn’t sweet enough. Seriously, though, the on-a-stick creation from the folks at Fried What? is a cross between a deep fried Twinkie and a deep fried Reeces Peanut Butter Cup. Where’s the milk? You’ll find Fried What? next to the Pineapple Whip people by the Wendy’s Main Stage.
Yeah. I could probably find it on the internet but if I made it, nobody else in my house would eat it.
