What are your carnival/fair favorites?

I'm partial to the homemade ice cream, and the fresh roasted sweet corn. This year I'm going to try one of these smoked turkey legs I keep hearing so much about.

Not in love with the turkey legs.  Usually closer to turkey jerky in my experience. 

I always go for those dick long corn dogs, funnel cakes, and if it's a TX fair calf fries.

Calf fries?

What about Navajo Tacos? Those big in other places, or is that a Utah thing?

 yup, Calf fries.  But only at the local fair near my hometown.  A local boys home had a booth every year and made awesome calf fries and curly Q potatoes.  Oh hell, curly Qs!.  Forgot those. 

I don't think I've ever had Navajo tacos at a carnival but have had them before.  And fry bread, which if you put powdered sugar on it is kind of a funnel cake.

lol, bull nuts!  Nothing better.  A little hot sauce, maybe au jus, delicious.  If they're done right they have kinda the texture of a chicken mcnugget but nice beefy taste.   When done wrong they're horrid.
 
That's nothing though, frying anything makes it edible.  When I was growing up there was a guy who'd hire some Mexicans of questionable citizenship during cutting time.  They would throw a testicle on the brand fire for a minute or so, then lop the top off and eat it like an ice cream cone.  They wouldn't even wait for it to explode, which is the universal signal for "your testicles are done".  That is hardcore.
