Fun Fair Foods You Can Have at Home

It’s time to head to the fair! Yes, it’s that time of the year and we can’t be more excited. Of course, one of the biggest reasons people visit fairs is for the food. After all, where can you get giant pieces of bacon on a stick or just about anything battered and deep-fried?

Along with food, fairs are famous for sweets, treats, and of course candy. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite fun fair treats that we stock and supply to many of the stands you may be visiting when you hit the fair.

Popcorn
No visit to a fair or carnival is complete without stopping for popcorn. But skip the plain variety and go for some of the more delicious (and weird) flavors that are offered. Some of our favorite types of flavored popcorn include milk chocolate and caramel sea salt and… believe it or not… dill pickle! Popcorn is perfect for snacking, so if you can’t make it to the fair, be sure to pick up a bag or two from our great selection.

 

Cotton Candy
If you asked us years ago if there would ever be cotton candy flavors such as bacon, beer, or churro, we’d give you a crazy look! But this is 2021 and not only are those flavors of cotton candy available but you’ll also find unique ones such as jalapeno, pizza, and once again… dill pickle! Just in case you can’t find all of these flavors at your county fair, we have them ready to ship right to your door including the standard flavors you grew up with.

 

Sunflower Seeds
While popular at little league baseball games, believe it or not, sunflower seeds are also a popular fair treat. Many vendors roast and salt them right before your eyes and serve them up still warm. Now that we have your mouth watering for this salty treat, you can grab a few bags of DAVID Sunflower Seeds in the original flavor, ranch and even BBQ! But guess what? We also have sunflower seeds in… dill pickle flavor!

 

Pickles!
You knew we couldn’t end this without having actual pickles to talk about! Many vendors at fairs have barrels and barrels of pickles in many different flavors besides your standard dill pickle. You don’t have to head to the fair to get your pickle fix. We have individually packaged pickles in traditional dill, hot, and Kosher garlic. Keep them nice and cold in the fridge and break them out for a healthy snack.

Of course, no visit to the fair would be complete without coming home without some vendor’s homemade candy, so be sure to support your local family-owned businesses and grab some fudge or taffy on the way out!
