We've covered deep-fried fair food every year, always uncovering the latest abomination as vendors experiment with just what can be deep-fried and sold on a stick. Food on a stick makes perfect sense for fairgoers, as it makes eating without a table or utensils easier. But there are many things that should never be deep-fried. Rusty Blazenhoff brings us a report of 2013 treats as seen at the Alameda County Fair. Deep-fried Pop Tarts on a stick just seems like a waste of batter. The chicken-fried steak on a stick sounds good, but traditionally includes gravy, which wouldn't work at a fair. And a deep-fried cheeseburger? Since we put burgers on a bun to eat them with one hand in the first place, that just seems silly. Link
