Deep-fried bacon-wrapped pickle, where have you been all my life?

The Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe may be getting all the attention on this year's county fair circuit, but it's not the only food that'll make your jaw drop (and arteries squirm). At this year's OC Fair, which runs from July 12 to August 11, there'll be plenty of reasons to wear the fat pants. Here are five monstrosities heading this way.
Ghiradelli Hot Dog Pink's Hot Dogs will offer a beef dog topped with cream cheese, honey mustard, crumbled bacon and Ghiradelli dark chocolate. Fancy!
Wild Boar Bacon on a Stick Bacon-A-Fair will sell the item exclusively at the OC Fair. Gnaw away.
Bacon Nutella Pizza Bacon=good. Nutella=good. Pizza=good. Put them all together and you have the taste explosion that is Ten Pound Buns' Bacon Nutella Bun.
Deep Fried Bacon Wrapped Pickle Pretty self explanatory. Of course, it's from the deep-fry gods at Chicken Charlie's, maker of the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe.
Bacon Beer It's actually bacon root beer (boo!) but we're still intrigued. Will it have the depth of Rogue's Bacon Maple Ale? Find out at Bacon-A-Fair.
Other foods that didn't quite make the list include truffle gouda bacon fries, waffle dogs (a hot dog wrapped inside a waffle and all on a stick), a 2-foot-long smoked sausage on a stick, macaroni and cheese hamburger, fried bacon ice cream, deep-fried lobster and cream cheese on a stick. Bon appetit!
