Yesterday, Mark Zable's fried biscuits and gravy announcement
got us all hyped up for the fried fare at this year's State Fair of Texas. We're just days away from the official announcement of the finalists of the Big Tex Choice Awards and we're all sitting around wondering, "Well, if fried biscuits and gravy didn't make it into the finals round -- what possibly could have made it?"
We have hopes. We have dreams. And now, we have a list of the eight fried foods we hope are finalists for this year's Big Tex Choice Awards. Behold:
Fried burnt ends (updated)
Fried loaded baked potato
This suggestion came to us via Noah Bailey, and it's a keeper. Chives or no chives, though? What's the plan here?
Kimchee's good. And if someone hasn't already thrown that whole mess in a fryer, they really, really should've.
Fried Neapolitan pizza
Because fuck being authentic. It's State Fair time and there ain't nothing a fryer can't make better. Except maybe beer.Incredible Update Part Two, 4:45 p.m
: Cane Rosso
just tweeted the above photo, along with "Fried Cane Rosso pizza w LH BurntEnds." Also, "see you in hell @thecheapbastard."
Fried TUMS and/or Fried Lipitor
Let's do the tropical flavors. Mmm. And it has calcium, which is something your body needs anyway! Or maybe fried Lipitor is more Most Creative? It's definitely worse. Just not sure if that's a good worse or a bad worse.
Fried Snow Cone
|Fry us a snow cone, beetches! Fry! A! Snow Cone!|
gabbahey suggested this one in the comments section. Can't really think of anything better than a Fried Pimp Juice
Fried Ranch Dip
Use a Ruffles-based batter and we immediately bone you. The next year, do fried hummus and every vegan everywhere will love you forever, too.
Fried Foie Gras
Chris Danger suggested this one in the comments section. We have to agree that it could easily win the Most Creative title based on how many people would instantly cry just at the sight of this fried item. Some sad tears, some happy tears. All crying.
