About This Quiz

Fair food may sound terribly unhealthy at first and, if we're being fair, it probably is. But that's not looking deep enough! The world of fair food is a world of creativity and joy. It's pushing the envelope and having fun.  It's deep fried. So much deep-fried everything. But that's part of the appeal, too. It's not hindered by the rules of society. There's no stress in fair food. It's just real, unapologetic stuff. 

When you look at fair food in those terms, is it any wonder we love it so much? How can you reject a corn dog when it's being so honest with you? It's unhealthy, and it knows it. It doesn't care! It just wants to be accepted for what it is. 

There are a lot of parallels between fair foods and people when you really get down to it. We may look sweet or crusty, but when you peel back the layers, there's some real meat underneath.  Some substance.  There's a surprise inside! Things just got real over here. If you've always felt you needed to understand your inner deep-fried Twinkie better, take the quiz! Answer honestly about yourself, and we'll tell you just what delicious fair food represents your personality!
