County fairs are widely known for fun and decadence, whether it be through the rides, attractions, or the food. And speaking of the food, in recent years its become the main attraction for many looking for some prime time indulgence. Usually deep fried, a sweet treat, or both, fair food scratches cravings that you didn’t know you had, like a sudden hankering for deep fried butter. However, most of these foods are noticeably missing some pops of vibrant color. That’s why the LA County Fair is going POP this year for their theme and rolling out a special discount POP Menu, where select foods are full of color and only $6.50. Check out some of our favorite picks below:
Tajin Dole Whip
Nitro Treats is taking Dole whip from Disneyland and bringing it right to your favorite mangonada stand. In a varied take on the treat, they’re topping a smooth pineapple Dole whip with Chamoy and Tajin to give it that sweet chili flavor with a little bit of spicy zest.
Deep Fried Uncrustables
Chicken Charlie is a Southern California fair staple that’s serves up a constantly rotating menu of off the wall fried foods. This time they’re using a familiar after school snack: the Smuckers Uncrustable. By dipping it in a colored batter, they’re turning the Uncrustable into a red nugget of deep fried deliciousness. Topped with a strawberry drizzle, powdered sugar, and fruity pebbles, this treat is bursting at the seams with vibrancy and flavor.
Rainbow Pop Grilled Cheese
Grilled cheese sandwiches might be the most comforting of comfort foods, but they’re not much fun to look at. The Dog House is addressing this by giving the cheese some POP. By using four different colors of cheese, once this sandwich has been grilled, it becomes a gooey, yummy rainbow.
Though delicious, all elote is usually similarly colored. Crazy Corn is here to fix that. They’re covering their corn with the usual mayo and butter combo, and then smothering the whole thing in different colored cheese to give it a full rainbow spectrum of colors.
Poprock Texas Donut
Everything is bigger in Texas, even the donuts. Aptly named Texas Donuts, this donut shop is covering a massive donut with a classic glaze, and then pop rocks. This gives the donut some color pop and a literal pop once you bite in.
32Oz Root Beer Float
How could you make a root beer float better? It’s already sweet, creamy, and delectable. Well, you could super-size it, shooing the disappointment of finishing off until later. And that’s exactly what MacPherson’s Ice Cream is doing. This root beer float comes with a leaning tower of soft serve surrounded by a 32 oz. moat of root beer.
Chocolate Dipped Jerky
This sweet meat just got even sweeter. Timbo’s Beef Jerky will have giant sticks of their chewy, savory jerky covered in luscious chocolate and sprinkles, to give it some color.
Which of these items sounds best to you? Luckily, it doesn’t matter, as each item on the POP Menu only costs $6.50, so it’s entirely possible to try all of them. And you can do this all at the LA County Fair in Pomona, CA, until September 22nd.
