I tried all 8 finalists at the judging of the Big Tex Choice Awards Best Fried Food contest. These are my photos and reviews.

The making of "Fried Picnic on a Stick". There is nothing to dislike about spicy chicken, pickles, and tator tots fried and dipped in ranch, BBQ, or honey mustard sauce. It's enough for a meal at the fair! Fried Chicken On A Stick Recipe, How To Cook Chicken, Food On Sticks, Stick Food, Food Porn, Carnival Food, Homemade Pickles, Food Trailer, Small Meals

Surprisingly delicious little snack. "Fried Mexican Fire Cracker" contains shredded chicken, cheese, and jalapeños in a fresh-made masa dough— a nice flavor change-up from the coated in fry batter.

"Chicken Fried Bites" with jalapeño ranch dipping sauce or agave nectar sauce were spicier than most of us liked, but prickly pear cactus is a fun novelty to share with a group. Closest comparison is like eating spicy fried green beans.

OMG, amazing flavor! The judges got the Best Taste @StateFairofTX winner right. Deep #Fried #Jambalaya is packed with flavor and textures, a hint of spicy, salty, and savory, meets soft rice and a crunchy shell, served with spicy ranch. I'm not even a big jambalaya fan and I love this #food! Texas Fair, Jambalaya, Secret Recipe, Judges, Foodies, Ranch, Spicy, Shell, Good Things

Deep fried #pork wing and homestyle potato #chips. Slow roasted 6 hours, the pork is tender and the sauce tastes smokey sweet, but it doesn't have fry batter or taste fried, so… it tastes like a wing you've ate before. The chips taste fresh and good in the sauce. (My least favorite item.) Homestyle Potatoes, Least Favorite, Fried Pork, Potato Chips, Waffles, Fries, Roast, Texas, Deep

In all fairness I didn't get to eat this warm, but it was my second least favorite @StateFairofTX #food. Three-cheese #macncheese baked, battered, and fried, then placed on a beef party on a bun, served with waffle #fries. From a foodie standpoint, it tastes like 3 foods from the grocery freezer section. Least Favorite, Freezer, Hamburger, Waffles, Fries, Texas, Beef, Cheese, Warm
