Primary Menu

If you’re trying to shed a few pounds, visiting the State Fair is probably the worst place to go, especially with this year’s new items.

The North Carolina State Fair just released its 2019 menu, which has been described as a dietician’s nightmare. Ever eat a piece of red velvet funnel cake topped with cheese and enchilada sauces? Or how about a jalapeno pepper stuffed with cheese and brisket served on a stick? They have both. Forget using an ordinary bun for your fried chicken breast sandwich. One vendor is serving the dish with cinnamon buns instead, adding pepper jack cheese and crispy bacon. To see the rest of the foods this year, click here.
