Daily menu: The best I ate and drank at the NY State Fair (so far) – syracuse.com

Geddes, N.Y. — We’ve made it through 15 days of the New York State Fair so far. That’s a lot of eating and drinking, a lot of Pepto Bismol and Advil. I should know; I have spent each one of those days and nights here sampling what syracuse.com readers suggested, oftentimes with those readers who reached out to me.

Some were favorites that you’ve eaten annually since you first started coming here as a kid. Some were dishes you just tried for the first time that blew you away. A couple were items you hadn’t had but were just curious about. Plenty were things I discovered on my own.

At the end of each day, I took the best of what I bought and created a menu for anyone looking for stuff to put on their State Fair bench.

With just a couple days to go, here is a compilation of the best I have consumed so far. I’ll continue to add to it until the end.
