Texas Corny Dogs

This is one of those things about Texas that I love – Corn Dogs!  (aka – Corny Dogs.)

Texas Corny DogTexans enjoy their traditions – and nothing is quite as traditional as a corny dog at the State Fair of Texas. The Fletcher brothers, Neil and Carl, had no way of knowing the phenomenon that they were “cookin'” up back in 1942 and selling for a mere 15 cents. In an attempt to break into the food concession business they created the ultimate in fair food – sweetened corn-battered hot dogs on a stick, dipped in oil heated to 365 degrees and fried to perfection.

The Fletcher family continues to serve up these delectable treats each year at the State Fair of Texas. Operating out of six locations throughout the grounds, the family sells more than 500,000 corny dogs during each 24-day event. (That’s alot of corn dog goodness going on!)

So, what do you think about corny dogs?  Take the poll;

As you can see, Elizabeth won in a landslide, followed by me (dad) and then Elvis!?  I think Erica was hurt…

Maybe I’ll open a new poll in a month or two if there is interest.
