Hungry yet? NC State Fair announces 34 new foods to try at this year’s fair


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — If you like meat, cheese and things that have been deep-fried – you’re in luck.

The Chickenator

The North Carolina State Fair released its list of 34 new foods for this year’s event.

The 34 new foods range from the relatively healthy – such as Cool Runnings Jamaican’s jerk chicken rice bowl – to the not-so-healthy, like nearly everything else on the list.

Some of the foods that will surely be the talk of the fair include a Reese’s Donut, pumpkin spice hushpuppies, roasted pumpkin spice corn, a “Crack-n-Cheese” stuffed turkey leg, candied apple hushpuppy with Cheerwine sugar glaze, and a red velvet cheese enchilada funnel cake.

There is also “The Chickenator,” a fried chicken breast between cinnamon buns, topped with pepper jack cheese and bacon, and honey sauce.
