If you’ve never tried bacon cinnamon buns, you’re missing out. The good news: You can easily sample some by heading to the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island from Aug. 21 to Sept. 3.
In essence, someone decided to put mini cinnamon rolls on a stick, wrap them in bacon, dip them in batter and fry them until they’re crispy and golden brown. Oh, and because that’s clearly too refined, sprinkle on some cinnamon sugar to round out the flavors.
If fried cinnamon buns aren’t your style, the Nebraska State Fair also has a few other doozies. There’s a cheeseburger made with bacon, tart jam and two glazed donuts. Or, if you have more of a sweet tooth, you can try a ridiculously decadent cream puff made with chocolate, white or red velvet cake.
Yes, you read that correctly: There’s actually cake inside the cream puff.
