Texas State Fair Announces Its Ninth Annual Big Tex Choice Awards
The day has arrived when your arteries quiver in fear: The State Fair of Texas has announced its Ninth Annual Big Tex Choice Awards when vendors compete for Best Taste and Most Creative new foods.
A group of contestants presented their creations in August; the field has been narrowed to eight. A panel of three judges will pick winners in two categories. Last year’s winners were Deep Fried Jambalaya for best taste, and Fried Bacon Cinnamon Roll, for most creative.
This year, the finalists include one made with a trendy ingredient Nutella and a clever one that sums up an entire meal. Most are savory, only two are sweet.
