It’s All About The Food At The San Diego County Fair

Audio

It's the final day of the San Diego County Fair. Fair goers can throw their diets out the window.

It's the final day of the San Diego County Fair. Fair goers can throw their diets out the window.

If you like deep-fried foods, the San Diego County Fair is the place to be.

There's deep-fried cheese curds, frog legs, and avocados. For dessert, you can have deep-fried s'mores, or Pop Tarts.

But the crème-de-la-crème is deep-fried butter.

Leo Dano from El Cajon chose the sweet version. He chowed down on a big slab of butter, deep-fried in batter, topped with sugar and whipped cream.

He says it had a unique flavor.

"Like wet butter. I mean, you didn't really taste like the consistency like if you, chewed into a butter from a refrigerator, it was really already melted. But it was good."

Dano says it was definitely better than last year's food sensation: chocolate bacon.
