The all-time favorite fair food - the corn dog. You may like it as-is but the Deep Fried Butter Stand is banking that you'll like it covered in chocolate. Look for the Chocolate-Covered Corn Dog - new in 2011.

If you could think of it, the fair fried it up! While we're not quite sure what this dish is, it's fried AND smothered with cheese. A double whammy! Fairgoers ate up 8,000 zucchini weenies in 2009.
