The 2018 State Fair of Texas is right around the corner and if you’re a “foodie” and love to try all the new concoctions the fair has to offer then check out the winners of the Big Tex Choice Awards.

You can try these winning treats and many, many more at the State Fair of Texas starting September 28th. 

Winner of Best Savory Food: Fernie’s Hoppin’ John Cake with Jackpot Sauce.

It’s a treat that puts a spin on the classic, southern New Year’s Eve “good luck” dish.

It’s fried until crunchy and topped with a black-eyed pea relish and a side of Jackpot Sauce.

Winner of Top Sweet Food: Arroz Con Leche

It’s a cinnamon-spiced rice ball that is deep fried with a crispy puffed rice cereal batter.

It’s served with a side of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.

Winner of Most Creative Food: Cotton Candy Taco

The dessert taco has a graham cracker waffle cone shell and is filled with a marshmallow glaze, chocolate, cane sugar cotton candy and other toppings.
