First taste test of new Elkhart County 4-H food - Fox 28: South Bend, Elkhart IN News, Weather, Sports

First taste test of new Elkhart County 4-H food

Posted:

How do fried jelly beans sound?  Or Fried peanut butter?  Those are just some of the options at this years Elkhart County 4-H Fair. 

It starts Friday but Thursday night some people got a special sneak peek of what will be offered.

One after the other people stepped up to order fried peanut butter and fried cinnamon jelly beans.  And once they took a bite they all said the same..."mmm that was really good.  I loved it."

Pat Hochstedler said she loves the fair and trying the new food each year.  "I am a fair junkie.  I live eat and breathe the fair."

This year is no exception.  She was one of many who got a special taste test of fair food before the fair officially starts.  And she was also one of many who loved what they ate.  "definitely falls into the line of fair food cause it's fried and it's sweet and it's rich."  Cameron Whitaker said, "It had a little bit of heat but it was pretty good."  And Sheena Whitaker said, "both of them were great.  The peanut butter was my favorite of the two."

The deep fried peanut butter and deep fried cinnamon jelly beans are just two items in a list of several new foods at the fair this year.  Tim Yoder with the Fair Board said there's lots of crazy ways they come up with these ideas.  "I live with a 13 year old that can eat anything and so Jacob some times come sup with what about that, what about this?"

And they start thinking of new fair food a year in advance.  "Tuesday night we actually came up with two new ones for next year that I can't tell you about," said Yoder.  But whatever they are they are sure to be loved just as much as this years new food.
