What’s a Waffle Bomb?

It’s new this year to the 167th Ohio State Fair! A waffle bomb is a chocolate-covered jumbo strawberry deep fried in waffle batter. Just one of the many new treats…or $30 meals…take your pick. Some of my other discoveries:

  • the Alfredo-stuffed turkey leg from Hickory Tree BBQ, right beside the Main Street Stage
  • Cajun waffle dogs – andouille sausages, dipped in waffle batter, deep-fried
  • cold edible cookie dough
  • cornbread funnel cake
  • waffle pickle dogs – pickle spears on a stick, wrapped in black forest ham, dipped in Belgian Waffle batter, deep-fried
  • Nutter Butter stuffed funnel
