Our partner Foodbeast [1] shares breaking food news, trendsetting recipes, and more with us. Today, Elie Ayrouth and his team did us a solid by trying all the latest, craziest fried fair food [2] in Orange County, CA.

Steeped in thick batter, then mercilessly deep-fried, so is the world of inglorious fair food. Naturally, when we got word that our local fair was serving deep-fried Doritos, deep-fried pecan pie-on-a-stick, and some kind of deep-fried Jack Daniel's sorcery — we had to get in on it.

Deep Fried Cookie Dough

What: Amazing. My favorite dessert of the fair — a crispy edge to warm, gooey cookie dough? So. Damn. Good.

Where you'll find it: Chicken Charlie's [3]

Cost: $7.75

Deep Fried Pecan Pie on a Stick

What: An entire slice of pecan pie, deep fried, and delivered on a stick.

Where you'll find it: Fried Sweets

Cost: $8

Giant Pop Rocks Doughnut

What: A humongous, pancake-sized warm fluffy doughnut with a warm pink icing and topped with cherry Pop Rocks. The doughnut is what makes this thing incredible. The dough is perfect; the warm fry keeps it edible for awhile; and it’s a messy delight for everyone involved.

Where you'll find it: Texas Doughnuts

Cost: $8.75

Deep Fried Pineapples

What: If you like pineapples, these things are moist with a light crunch, in a good, good way. The chocolate and coconut is a perfect touch.

Where you'll find it: Pineapple Express (also a Chicken Charlie's booth)

Cost: $6.75

Deep Fried Jack Daniel's

What: A bit misleading of a name, but it's a Jack Daniel's-infused churro, wrapped in bacon. It comes with a side of whipped cream and maple syrup, but I highly recommend trying the entire dish sans any of the fancy toppings and letting the Jack Daniel's shine through. The flavors are fantastic — essentially breakfast in your mouth.

Where you'll find it: Bacon-A-Fair

Cost: $6.50

More Fried Goodness (Including Fried Doritos)
