“Howdy, folks! I’m Big Tex!” These words will soon be booming aloud over the fairgrounds at the State Fair of Texas, and any good Texan knows that there is just nothing quite like it. Can’t you picture it? Hot sun beating down, the smell of freshly cooked corndogs permeating the air and the sounds of kids (and kids-at-heart) riding the tilt-a-whirl in the Midway or cheering on their favorite college team during the Cotton Bowl.
Every year at this fair in Dallas, visitors are delighted to see live music shows, shiny cars not yet in the market and fried food concoctions that always make you ask, “How in the world did they fry that?!” So, in honor of our favorite September Texas tradition, and in true Texas Treats style, we’ve created a basket that’s as big as Big Tex so you can enjoy the excitement of the State Fair of Texas whether you’re in Dallas, Detroit or Des Moines! We’ve jam-packed this basket with some of our favorites, and just like the world-famous Texas Star (which also happens to be the largest ferris wheel in North America), this Texas State Fair Sampler is a must-see attraction! Oh, and did we mention that it includes our famous “beer fries” which made their debut at the 2010 State Fair of Texas? They were a huge hit, and we’re sure this basket will be too!
We’ve included something for everyone – Crunchy Beer Fries and Cowboy snack mix for the ones who like it salty – Texas sized Jelly Beans, and Cactus Candy for those who like it sweet! – And, because we know it wouldn’t be a real Texas Treat without some spice, we’ve fixed this marvelous basket up with some Jalapeno Lollipops, Texas size Hot Cinnamon Jelly Beans, and our signature Habenero Pralines for those who like it HOT. Of course, we would be doing you a disservice if we neglected to try and teach you how and when to say “howdy”, so in case you find yourself making a trip to Texas’ largest fair in Dallas, we have included the book, “You Know You’re a Texan If…” so you will be able to spot and understand almost any Texan whom might cross your path! We know you can’t all make it out to Dallas this year to enjoy the State Fair, but we hope you enjoy the Texas State Fair Sampler, and hopefully, we’ll see you at the Fair!!
