Fair Food Friday: Berries and chocolate and caramel, oh my

September 7, 2012
Saw these treats and just HAD to take a photo of them

There’s something about the food each year that truly completes the Fair experience. It’s adventure and nostalgia all rolled into one. We decided it would be fun to bring back last year’s Fair Food Fridays and highlight some of our favorite treats each week!

I enjoy a deep-fried anything as much as the next Fairgoer but there is a lot to be said about the healthier side of life–if you count caramel apples and chocolate dipped strawberries as healthy, of course! I made a quick visit to Terri’s Berries today and got a little peek at what goes on behind the scenes.

To make a white chocolate caramel apple, there’s a lot of work to be done. First, Terri selects a crispy apple from her supply of fruit and dips it in caramel. Once the caramel has hardened, she dips it again into creamy white chocolate.
Then, before it has a chance to completely harden, she rolls the caramel-chocolate apple into a variety of tasty snacks, whether that’s sprinkles or, in this case, crumbled Oreo cookies. Once the chocolate and Oreo combination has completely dried, it is all ready to be set on display and then, delivered into the hands of an eagerly waiting Fair guest.
Terri also offers chocolate-covered strawberries, fresh fruit bowls and an assortment of healthy snacks for those ready for an action-packed day at the Fair. Make sure to stop by if you get a chance and take a glance at her treats. They look AND taste absolutely amazing!

Oreos + white chocolate + caramel = YUM
