I am an avid junk foodie! With my daughter grown and no longer taking her to the fair, it has been years since I have been to the Barnstable County Fair. But this year I was going back! I was in fast, junk, food heaven! There were some new food stands like mac & cheese and everything chocolate! You can find lobster rolls and healthier choices if you so desire. But the stands I remember were in the same place as I left them all those years ago! Ray’s French Fries were as good as I remember! Ray’s makes great french fries. The two stands with Italian sausages were nearby just as they have been for over 20 years. Oh yes, I had one too! The best strawberry sundae truck was half the size as I remember. Although the strawberry sundae was excellent, I missed seeing the gigantic bowl of the fresh strawberry sauce that drew me to them in years passed only to see a small container of their famous strawberry topping sitting on a back counter.
Was it worth the trip? You bet ya! It was too late to get a cotton candy made fresh since the machine was closed for the night and having cotton candy in a bag was not an option for me. While walking out, I saw great desserts including whoopee pies and the biggest fried dough I have ever seen! But some foods will just have to wait to next year!
So to every junk foodie, a fair is a great place to go to get everything you can possibly want in one place! If you need more money to enjoy your favorite foods, the fair even has an atm!
