POLL: Which New Wisconsin State Fair Food Are You Most Likely to Try?

It's not all deep fried! One of the choices in our poll has beer. Yeah, the others all are pretty much deep fried.

Wisconsin, these lists do not make your butt look fat.

Milwaukee did not make the latest Ten Fattest Cities in America list (Binghamton, hello!), and Wisconsin is just 22nd of the 50 states in obesity rate.

Apparently, these studies are not done during the Wisconsin State Fair, when vendors duel each other to create lard-powered cholesterol bombs that make the renowned cream puffs look like a serving of steamed broccoli.

And we eat them.

This year, 57 new food options are offered at the fair, Aug. 2-12 at State Fair Park in West Allis.

We have listed five in our poll that asks: “Which new State Fair food are you likely to try?” Select one or review the fair’s list and enter your favorite choice in the comments. Then call your cardiologist.

As the creator of this poll, I tried to pick a mix of different sorts of things from the list of new foods. Personally, a pork donut is borderline blasphemy. A donut should have sweet frosting, or sweet filling such as lemon or chocolate creme. Pork is for sandwiches. But I'd do the Elvis on a Stick.

I saw the poll on my computer, but was redirected to the fair website on my phone - may be why some are seeing the healthy choices as well. But a pork donut? Why not pair that with some chocolate covered cheese? I don't think a dog would even eat those combos. Elvis on a stick reminds me of chocolate chip pancakes with banana slices and a side of bacon. Hope they have some maple syrup to dip it in! Sounds good to me too.

I agree. Gluttony in MKE County is on the increase.

YES! The Cranberry Crunch On A Stick sounds absolutely delicious! So does the Cran-Cookie On A Stick! I will likely be stopping by the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association booth every day! :)

State fair (or any fair for that matter) is all about excess. We should be embracing the high fat foods rather than turning to the cranberry laden healthy alternatives...
