The Double Bacon Corn Dog Exists, Wants To Be Inside You

Filed under: Silly!Food

Forget people trying to make tomatoes taste better, or how to grow plants without pesticide — the true food science in this world is coming from state fairs!

Allow us to introduce the Double Bacon Corn Dog, made by Campbell's Concessions of Des Moines, Iowa.

People at the Iowa State Fair will be getting a taste next month!

Here's what the creator said:

"I don't know anyone else that ever tried it and I know most other corn dog operators. I know a lot of people do the deep fried Oreos and deep fried butter but not bacon corn dogs."

Here's how it's done: the hot dog is wrapped in bacon, deep-fried, refrigerated and covered in batter with bacon bits. Then they do a "few more rich things to make the flavor pop."

Sounds bacon-y!

Would U give this a try???!??!?!???

QuickFit Tip Of The Day

Does your job order takeout everyday?! Swapping a side salad instead of fries can leave you unfilled. I usually ask for a side of carrots & chickpeas or tomatoes and mozarella drizzled with balsamic and fresh basil (most places, especially Italian restaurants) will have these ingredients on hand.
