Eat a deep-fried Twinkie at the Los Angeles County Fair.

They’ll fry anything at this fair, which draws more than a million people to the Fairplex in Pomona each September. In recent years, fair vendors have been selling deep-fried artichokes hearts, deep-fried zucchini, deep-fried egg rolls and deep-fried macaroni and cheese on a stick. For dessert, you can always find those familiar deep-fried funnel cakes. Or get adventurous with the deep-fried Oreos or the deep-fried Snickers bar, which is frozen, dipped in corndog-style batter before taking a dip in hot oil. Just as decadent are the deep-fried Twinkies, which come topped with powdered sugar or chocolate sauce.

For this year’s fair, which starts Sept.10, vendors are certain to have some new deep-fried innovations to wow the crowds. Just make sure you indulge in these funky fried treats after you’re done with the spinning rides.
