Bacon brisket bomb.  Yummy.

Pork on a stick was disappointing as it was just a bone in pork chop.

Always love fried cheese curds

I'm from Louisiana and currently live in Florida. Gator has always been a common food for me... And yes, tasty.

I would really like to try it. But I don't think I have much chance of getting hold of it in the UK. :(

I googled "alligator meat UK" and there are a few suppliers who have a range of meats [Osgrow.com (for instance) do alpaca-to-zebra, via crocodile/impala/ostrich/water buffalo (with a side of crickets/locusts)], and even Iceland was advertising crocodile burgers!  I'm not sure I'd know the difference between 'gator and croc, but I'm guessing it might be similar?

Thanks for the tip, I need to look into this Osgrow.com. Other Half is really into different types of meat, maybe we could host a "weird meats" party for a few friends who would also like to try something a bit different.

A bag of Fritos with the side of the bag slit open and chili poured inside with a topping of cheese and onions.

I don't know if this constitutes "bizarre" but the first time I had it I thought it unique, quite odd and absolutely delicious. ;D

That's a Frito Pie. And has been a standard of high school football concession stands since at least the '60s.

When I was a teen in Oklahoma,  we called those Freak Pie.
Even better using nacho cheese Doritos!

I had seen potato ice cream before (yummy), but this year I saw for the first time an Ice Cream Potato.  I didn't buy one, although I was tempted to out of curiosity.

Martha Stewart has a famous recipe for one.

Not fried, but Wisconsin State Fair Creme Puffs are to die for!

I wouldn't try deep fried butter, but that just sounds gross. I would try alligator though, that does sound good. Nothing with more than four legs, though.

That was my first reaction too, but after thinking about it, it probably taste like fried bread or doughnut with melting butter. Still not my thing though.

I looked up the recipe.  It reminds me of Spaghetti Eis  from Germany:

Very delicious

It's not the same thing, but all this talk about potato ice cream is making me crave old fashioned potato candy balls.

Our local Tomato Festival tried deep fried pizza one year.  I don't think it would have been bad if they had used a regular batter, but they used funnel cake batter.  Pizza covered in sweet dough is not good.

However, the deep fried s'more we had at the chocolate festival two summers ago was sinfully delicious.
