Welcome To Oregon...

Inspired by Melanie's NYC posts recently, in more ways than one....

(See Updated Fried Fair Food list below)

Yes. It HAS come to this. They honest to goodness dip the Snickers bar in
corndog batter and then.... fry them deep?

I didn't get a picture of one, and NO I did not buy one. Way too busy eating my giant corn dog thank you very much.

Didn't take my camera to the fair, can you tell these are from my phone?

I really don't think she is flipping me off...?? Is she!?

And....

Two Oregon Originals. A restaurant called Starv'n Marv'n. And Men. In shorts. In sandals. In socks. Hubby is the one on the right w/OUT socks... (click the one on the right to get the FULL SOCK EFFECT!)

Arizona would fit right in.

UPDATE:

Apparently I'm not the only one to see this, several comments mention deep fried:

Twinkies

Oreos

Tacos

Coca-Cola (still tryin' to figure that one out?)...3littlemonkeys said this:

"I have no idea! lol It was squishy congealed-like Coke covered in batter and deep-fried." ---Um? Ew? Then she sent me this LINK.... cool huh?
Peaches? (See here)

Pop Tarts (in Fresno?)

Spam Curds (Whoa?...)

and....

PB&J Sandwiches!

Ughmph.

(Oh and there was mention of Garlic Ice Cream--lovely.)

Yummm, fried snickers...like a candy bar wasn't bad enough, let's fry it and add batter. Sheesh!

Love the sandals and socks, that's making quite the fashion statement, huh?

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

I have to try the fried snicker bar. HAVE TO.

Chris said...

I think maybe she is flipping you off.
And it's good to see that they are finally deep frying candy -- it's way too healthy.

Cecily R said...

Gosh dang it!!! Why didn't you try one for me?? I need to know if they are worth the day's worth of calories!!!

Confession time: Jon sometimes wears socks and sandals. And I still love him when he does. Sort of.

JenniBeanV said...

I would like a fried snickers! WOW I bet it is good!

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

This is exactly what I thought when I went to the State Fair recently and they were selling deep fried PB&J. I thought: "You have got to be KIDDING ME!" There was a long line for them too. YUCK!

AVT Coach said...

Wow, we have those too and in OK we have turkey legs and corn on the cob on a stick! Yikes! And, just so you won't feel too bad, in OK men wear "Sunday Socks" with their tennis shoes...to mow the lawn!!! Welcome to America! and thanks for the laugh!
Oh wait, my brother moved to Oregon and is now living there...could that be him in your photo..I hope not!

Elle said...

wow fried candy bars - that has to be the worst idea - almost as bad as garlic ice cream

Melanie said...

Ya know..everything is better deep fried tehe! In Missouri there is this cheap taco place..yes they deep fry them and oh boy..they melt in your mouth straight to your gubutt!!

Makes me miss home..wish I "were" there...they change the were and was on everything. I love calling my Dad just to hear that!

Susan said...

We were just at a fair last Saturday and I was so grossed out by all the vendors that had fried snickers and fried oreos. I'm sorry, but to me it just sounds gross!

Sarah Brooks said...

Okay, I think that the fried candy bar sounds scrumptious!!! And ugh... sandlas with socks. My three year old keeps insisting on socks with his crocks. I know it's not that big of a deal, but I hate how it looks. Dangit he's just too darn cute for me to say no too.

Bren said...

Yep, our state fair has them too. I've never tried one as just the thought has my arteries screaming. My husband had fried Coca-Cola last year though.

Give me the corny dog and funnel cake any day!

angie said...

Love the blac sock with sandals look. NOT. ECK.

I don't think I could even take a bite of a deep fried candy bar. I'd be wondering just how much fat was in one teeny bite. :)

Mikki said...

oh my gosh! deep fried candy bars? Insane. Just what my thighs, and middle section need. Give me a big ol' bag of kettle corn though. Yum Yum.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

very funny! I saw fried candy bars on a cooking show once - doesn't look any more appealing!

Jaime said...

Snickers are my favorite, you know. I would be interested to taste a deep fried one. My husband deep fried twinkies once--I honestly can't remember if they were good or not. He assures me they were...

Mamarazzi said...

mmmm anything deep fat fried is ok by me...woo hoo!!

ValleyGirl said...

Hey, sounds like a place hubby and I would fit right in, too! Him with the socks and sandals and me scarfing down deep-fried chocolate bars!! Yikes, I can only imagine what that would do for my waistline!!!

Great pictures!

CrackerJacks said...

Haha! I so would have bought a candy bar!! I have heard of people deep frying twinkies too. Mmm, what a wonderful world!

Alexandria said...

omg. I dont think I could eat a deep fried candy bar. That's just wrong.

Neat pics, even though they're from a camera phone!

Mekhismom said...

Fried snickers? I think I have heard it all now. And that so would not help me get in gear to shape up! It looks like the fair was fun. Men in socks and sandals? Not so nice. Way to go hubby!

April said...

I just went to the fair recently and saw deep fried OREOS and my mouth fell open. I can't even begin to imagine how that tastes (*SHUDDER*)! LOL Great pics!

ValleyGirl said...

It's me again ~ I forgot to tell you before that I was totally sucked in by the name of your blog as well as the "They fry WHAT?!" addition to the Mr. Linky!!

Mikki said...

Hey! I made that little adjustment to my blog that you requested. Thanks for the tip. I never clicked it before, cause I wasn't sure I wanted my email address made pulic, but I guess this doesn't really make it public.

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Next time try the snickers. I've had oreos and they are heaven. I've had one candy bar, but honestly I forget. And I saw the PB&J this past time, but I'm just not there yet. I imagine it would be pretty rockin' though as I LOVE grilled PB&Js.

Pennies In My Pocket said...

That was me...I mentioned the Oreos like 9238490384 times this past week on Twitter! lol

OK, deep friend candy bars? I can feel my hips getting bigger just thinking about it. lol

~melody~

Melissa said...

I would eat a fried PB&J Sandwich... Do you think less of me, now?

Straight to Your Hart said...

K...next yr try the Tulelake Fair..it is actually one of my favs...

Gina said...

Being a South Carolina transplant in California, people think it's funny to ask me what all I've eaten that has been deep fried. This post has provided me with plenty of fodder for their ridicule! But mmmmmm fried snicker's bar.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Deep fried oreos....Mmmmmmm! That sounds good!

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

Yes, I would fit right in! I think I lived in Oregon in a past life because I love to wear socks with my Birkenstocks. Love it. Love it love it love it.

Ixnay on the fried Snickers, though.... ewww.

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Fried twinkies and oreos are actually very tasty!

scrappysue said...
