Yes, folks, that is indeed a block of curly fries! The Tanana Valley State Fair in Fairbanks, Alaska did a few things that I will miss. For instance, I’ll miss sticking my plastic fork in a block (or brick, whichever sounds more appetizing to you) of greasy, deep fried French fries.
This picture of me was taken at the fair in August 2011, our last fair in Alaska.
It’s in the shape of a block because that’s how they fry it- in a rectangular basket which holds just enough curly fries for a serving (but really feeds about 2 people). They pull the cage out of the fryer, tip it out onto a plate, smother it in cheese sauce, and stick a fork in it!
Bad for the health, but as SpongeBob says, “It’s good for your soul!”…
