Healthy food on a stick

There’s a good reason why Big Tex, the icon of the State Fair of Texas, wears jeans with a 284-inch waist — he spends a month each year overlooking the Midway at the fair and the deep-fried creations that have become the fair’s most talked-about element.


Each year, mobile vendors vie for the title of the Big Tex Choice Award, chosen from dozens of entries that seem to get more outrageous each year.


The fried peanut butter, jelly and banana sandwich in 2005 led to 2007’s deep-fried latte and deep-fried butter in 2009. When the State Fair opens the gates Friday and Big Tex begins his mechanized wave, deep-fried jambalaya will be ruling the Midway as the 2011 award winner.
