Officials at the State Fair of Texas have chosen eight finalists in the Big Tex Choice Awards, which honor the tastiest and most creative new food offerings at the fair. And no, there’s not a shade-grown, fair trade, organic, lo-fat item in the bunch. The finalists? Beer-filled pretzel pockets, deep-fried frozen margaritas, deep fried s’mores Pop-Tarts, fried club salad, fried chocolate, fried lemonade, fried caviar with black-eyed peas, and a fried Frito pie with chili and corn chips. The judges will announce the winner on September 6th, at which time they’ll begin a regimen of deep-fried Lasix, Lipitor-filled pretzels, and fried frozen Slim-Fast.
