yeah, kettle corn is like that, lol. and i'm not going with the small cone :raspberry: it's the fair; super size it! the del mar fair (san diego) has the most awesome food. HUGE baked potatoes with every topping you can imagine, and corn dripping in butter, and FUDGE. mmmm. probably a good thing we missed it this year.

A hot dog has over 10,000 mg in sodium? Is that off?

Mmm, candy apple, rainbow snow cone, and popcorn! Ewww at the hot dogs, though. Just the thought of seeing them makes me wanna barf.

I thought the funnel cake would have WAY more calories and fat.

Funny Spectra, I was thinking, "cotton candy has protein in it? Score!" I just assumed it was way more horrible for me than it is. Not that I ever thought it was healthy...

I'm surprised how high the calorie count is for a small soft serve! Eep.

Vanonymous - I was looking for the same thing - Elephant Ear. It's probably just as much as a funnel cake.

I love cotton candy, but I only eat it when I go to the fair. It's pure sugar, I know, but I figure I only eat it once a year, so it's not a huge deal.

I'm a sucker for the fried dough. I don't see it up there, but I honestly don't even want to know!

The funnel cake isn't as bad as I thought it would be
