Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you… battered deep fried bacon.

This logical procession from deep-fried-anything at the Fair and the ever popular Pig Licker (chocolate covered bacon) has lead to its ultimate conclusion.

Strangely enough, it seems like the Arkansas State Fair is one of the first to present this confection of meat candy goodness, at least here in the States. Yes, there was Chicken Fried Bacon at the Texas State Fair, but that’s different, right? Right? I have one reference found of a county fair in Scotland serving it up this past May, and know that the North Carolina State Fair (which started yesterday) is also selling it. But since we’ve had our Fair going for a week, I think we take the greasy prize. C’mon, we deserve the credit for at least one more Fair innovation! More on the jump.
