Fried Foods and Supersized Eats at the Arizona State Fair

The fairgrounds offer more than whirligig rides, bright, colorful lights, and concerts. We're talking fried food, and there's plenty of it. Of course there are the typical funnel cakes, corn dogs, and French fries. There are also supersized favorites, like massive beef ribs (doggie bag included) and onion rings as big as a whole onion. Fair food vendors up the ante every year, and this time we're not disappointed. Don't miss the latest additions: maple bacon donuts and deep-fried cinnamon rolls.
