Oh sure you can go with a traditional corn dog or cotton candy. There will probably be gator bites and pizza. But for those looking to try something unique, vendors have created some inventive fair foods for this year’s Florida State Fair. This year the fair runs Thursday, February 9 through February 20 at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa.

  • The Walking Nacho Dog

    A hotdog topped with chips, jalapeno peppers and a cheese sauce.

  • Mexican Street Corn Sundae

    French fries topped with cheese, corn, spices, a cilantro lime crema, corn chips and your choice of shrimp or steak.

  • Fried Key Lime Pie

    What a combination of words! Mini donuts with a buttercream glaze topped with a key lime pie filling and whipped cream, white chocolate, crushed graham crackers and a lime slice.

  • Watermelon Sweet Tea

    A cool twist on a Southern classic. No artificial stuff is this one they say. You can also add lemonade to it.
