The Biggest, Most Insane List Of Fair Foods You'll Ever Read

The Orange County Fair is celebrating its 125th birthday this year. Can you imagine 125 years of rides, games, booze and fried foods? We sure can.

As far back as we can remember, we'd love going to the fair. Between playing games, munching on fair food and going on rides, we'd look forward it every summer. Now as adults, it's great to see that the magic of the fair still exists.

Well, unless you're three deep-fried burgers into your trip and about to go on a ride. Maybe not as magical then.

In honor of the special birthday event, we compiled a list of 125 of the greatest foods and drinks you can find at the Orange County Fair. While the majority can be found there right now, some are legendary enough to be remembered fondly.

Enjoy!
