It’s my favorite time of year…okay, one of my favorite times of year. Right up there with Halloween, Christmas, and the two-days after Valentine’s Day 75% off all candy sale day. What is the highly celebrated season do you ask? Is it my birthday? No. Is it the start of pumpkin spice everything season? No, not quite. Okay, I’ll tell you — it’s time for our county fair. Now, I know, I know, a bit of a let down you might say, but hold on. There are a lot of reasons to like the county fair, even one as small as ours. There are animals. There is cotton candy. There are rides. There is funnel cake. There are games. There’s cotton candy. There is great music usually. There’s funnel cake.
One of the main reasons I make an appearance at our county fair is because our local Girl Scouts extraordinaire have a booth with all sorts of wildly delicious confections available for a nominal fee. You see, I always forget when the ever elusive Girl Scout cookie time is and therefore I often miss the tables at the local grocery store. So the county fair is my chance to catch up on all the calories I missed out on earlier in the year.
However, perhaps the powers that be in the cookie kingdom should rethink my favorite cookie’s name. Re-brand it with something more accurate maybe. Somehow, I feel a little let down.
You had me with funnel cake.
The funnel cake was huge…a frying pan size serving. It was ridiculous. But yummy.
i love these too. put them in the freezer to hide them from myself, but then i just eat them frozen, and they are even better )
I’ve never tried that, but I do keep them in the fridge…I’ll have to try a batch out in the freezer!
I like those ‘Samoans’ cookies, and, yet, I’ve never had any desire to do the hula. Something’s wrong! 😀
You’re getting it mixed up with rum. Rum is what makes you hula. LOL But somoa cookies are pretty darn good in there own right.
Hmmm…. some rum would help, but I still doubt my ability to dance — rum and Samoas sounds like an interesting combo, tho.
OMG! do they have funnel cake there??? I’d be so there with you if they did.
Funnel cake is so huge, it needs two people. Although, I did give it my very best shot. 😀
Thin mints were always my favorite and have lived up to their name for me since I became gluten intolerant and have not eaten one in 15 or more years. They are still my favorite.
There aren’t too many girl scout cookies I DON’T like, but thin mints, somoas, and the lemony savannah smiles are my favorites.
