  • SWEET: Cherry Covered Chocolates at the Arkansas State Fair.

This here is a Cherry Covered Chocolate. It’s a Fried Oreo that’s been dipped in a Cherry Kool-Aid batter before frying. Sweet? Oh yes it is. It’s remarkably tasty.


There are a lot of neat fair foods out there this year at the Arkansas State Fair. Check out what we’ve found on our slideshow — or go to Tie Dye Travels to find out where you can find each specific item on the fairgrounds.

Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold. This isn’t just about news—it’s about recognizing the backbone of Arkansas’s economy. Every dollar you donate helps us reach our goal and keeps agriculture at the forefront of our community conversation. Act now; the stories of 19 million acres of forest and countless hardworking Arkansans depend on it.
