When people think of the fair, what is the first thing they think of? The food right? Every year people come together  in September to enjoy the Oklahoma State Fair. Activities vary from rides to car shows and of course the main attraction, the food. People from all over the state travel to Oklahoma City to enjoy the taste-bud-thrilling food. Arguments have been over what the best fair food truly is from chocolate covered things, deep fried things, bacon wrapped, funnel cakes, caramel apples, etc.

One of the most popular things to eat at the fair is the large, greasy turkey legs. The real question is if it is really worth thirteen dollars?

“It was over priced, it was dry, and I ended up wasting thirteen dollars, so definitely not worth the money,” sophomore Brianna A. said.

Although there is some strange and outrageously priced fair food you can always find something to enjoy.

“My favorite food at the fair is the corn dogs. there’s something special about the batter,” sophomore Brianna A. said.

Aside from the food the next go-to for the fair are the drinks, such as the infamous jug of root beer. What makes this root beer different than a normal root beer?

“I think it’s probably because it’s seasonal, it only comes with the memories that you make at the fair,” sophomore Claudia D. said. 

Although old traditions like funnel cakes and caramel apples are always a good choice, what about the new foods that debuted this year such as cookie fries, s’more egg rolls, and much more. The classic fan favorites will always be an option and they aren’t going anywhere. Even though rides and animal races are a thrilling experience, the true reason for the fair will always be the greasy, chocolate-y and deep fried foods that only come once a year.
