FLA­VOR

The Oklahoman - - FRONT PAGE -

Woods and Grayson will serve their win­ning dish at the Ok­la­homa State Fair Chair­man’s Party and col­lect a $300 prize and tro­phy.

The win­ner of the Sweet­est of the Sweet cat­e­gory was A Latte Love’s Frozen Hot Cho­co­late fol­lowed by Gringo’s Mex­i­can Fun­nel Cake and The Sweet Shop’s Red Vel­vet Cin­na­mon Roll.

The Urb Ex­press’ ex­cep­tional Honey Pep­per Ba­con Dog ob­vi­ously took the Sa­vory cat­e­gory, fol­lowed by the peren­nial fa­vorite Won­der­boy from Di­a­mond Dawgz of Nor­man. It’s a fair-wor­thy corn dog with a bread­ing made of corn­meal and Cap’n Crunch ce­real served with honey mus­tard. The Road­house fin­ished third with its Chicken On-A-Stick.

A spe­cial cat­e­gory was cre­ated for items new to the fair. St. Paddy’s Cakes took the New to the Scene divi­sion with its Ir­ish Break­fast Ta­cos, which are worth ar­riv­ing early for though you can get them any time of day. Sausage and Ir­ish ched­dar make ex­tra­or­di­nary this it­er­a­tion of the or­di­nary break­fast taco.

Sec­ond went to D&D Con­ces­sions for its Jalapeno Ba­con Cheese Curds and third went to CoCo Flow for its truly unique Uni­corn Crepe. Gene and Kim Leit­er­man’s blue crepe filled with rasp­berry cream is topped with their sig­na­ture cho­co­late sauce, fresh straw­ber­ries and cream, cot­ton candy, rain­bow candy and a sprin­kle of pop rocks— sure to be pop­u­lar with kids young and old.

All ven­dors who fin­ished in the top three take home a tro­phy. First-place win­ners earned $300, sec­ond place $150 and third place $50.

Those tro­phies will be on dis­play at the booths, so look for the hard­ware while you’re hunt­ing vict­uals.

The Ok­la­homa State Fair con­tin­ues through Sept. 24. Gates open daily at 10 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. Fri­days and Satur­days and 9 p.m. week­nights.
