You’ll Be Able to Eat Your Cup at This Year’s State Fair of Texas

We were already excited about the Fried Jell-O and State Fair Cookie Fries as part of the Big Tex Choice Awards finalists at the State Fair of Texas this year, but more crazy treats were just announced as part of the concession stands for 2016.

Guidelive.com says that festival goers will be able to enjoy classic Texas eats with a twist like Pecan Pie Poppers, which are bite-sized muffins with pecans and cream. If that isn’t odd enough, perhaps Piña-A lot-Tas will draw you in. “They’re rum-soaked pineapples, deep-fried, that are meant to taste like a food form of a piña colada,” Guidelive.com explains.

Though the strangest and most head-turning treat will be the State Fair Edible Cola. What starts off as a refreshing and sugary glass of either cotton candy or candy apple flavored Maine Root soda can be eaten once the liquid is gone. That’s right, State Fair of Texas patrons will be able to have their soda and eat the cup, too, with a seaweed-based cup that will taste like a fruit roll-up made by “Loliware, a company that Dallas’ Mark Cuban invested in during an episode of Shark Tank.”

The cup alone will be 135 calories, but it’s not like anyone at the State Fair is counting.
