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.
