The Los Angeles County Fair is known for its outrageous eats. In addition to the standard fair food offerings of corn dogs, funnel cakes, and cotton candy, you can now chow down on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos cheese fries, go hog wild with bacon fried s’mores, or turn up the heat with fried hot sauce. And that’s not even the craziest end of the fair food spectrum; bamboo worms, salted grasshoppers, and chocolate beetles are available for taste-testing in the Bug Barn. Not all L.A. County Fair food is fried or nutritionally abhorrent, either; there’s plenty of fresh fruit and vegan options so enticing that even carnivores will be tempted to try them, like jackfruit, one of the fair’s more exotic food offerings this year.
We sifted through Instagram for the most mouthwatering food captures from the 2017 L.A. County Fair, now in its 95th year and open through Sept. 24. Plan your binge-eating outing to Pomona, California or simply feast vicariously through these 20 delectable pics.
