Top 10 Foods At Your County Fair

Summer is a magical time of year with thousands of new things to explore and do that you didn't get the chance to during the school year. There's plenty of time to hang out with friends, relax, and generally do what you want without as many obligations, and even if you have the obligation of a job, there is still lots of time after your shift ends to blow the cash you just made. One of the easiest places to spend a bunch of money you don't have is the one week of the year where everyone in a twenty mile radius and even beyond gathers together for food, animals, and rides at the county fair. Specifically, you can lose a lot of coin to the incredibly tempting food trucks parked throughout the fairgrounds.

There can't be just one great fair food to point out to get all the glory, because they are all equally tempting and will easily break your bank and your diet. Here's a list of some of the classic, must-grab foods during that one week of the year that you convince yourself it's okay to splurge a little.

1. The ribbon fry

2. Fries

3. Funnel Cakes or Elephant Ears

4. Cinnamon Rolls

5. Corn Dog

6. Deep Fried Oreos - or really anything

7. Cotton Candy

8. Homemade Ice Cream

9. Pork Rib Sandwich 

10. Lemonade

There are some food trucks that are unique to each specific fair, but most fairs have these oldies but goodies. Save up some cash, ride some rides, hang out with friends, and then fill up for every meal off of these fair food staples. Be sure not to fill up before you ride rides though, because your money could end up going to waste.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
