Big Tex, the 52 foot Texas icon, has been through ringer this year. On October 19, 2012 our cultural ambassador at the Texas State Fair suffered a serious setback when an electrical short caused a fire to break out and within minutes Big Tex was unrecognizable. But according to Big Tex, this is just a minor setback, not the end. Big Tex represents the enduring Texas spirit that’s deep down in each and every one of us Texans.
That’s why this year when Big Tex makes his debut he will be 55 feet tall and weigh 24,000 pounds, more than four times his previous weight. His heavy weight will protect him from gail force winds and he’ll even have his own built-in fire suppression system.
Big Tex is considered a generous giant who spends three weeks out of the year greeting excited fair-goers. Because of his Texas roots and big heart it’s easy to know what kind of gift he would give… it would come from Texas and be very big! How’s about Texas Treats Big Tex Gift Box.
The Big Tex Gift Box is full of big taste. The Texas shaped gift box comes packed with Margarita Jelly, Mesquite BBQ Sauce, Chipotle Con Queso, Texas Fiesta Salsa, Fire Roasted Salsa, Sizzlin’ Steak Seasoning, and Truly Texas Chili Mix. Don’t forget to add a bag of Texas Treats Authentic Texas Tortilla Chips for dipping.
And if you really like the heat you can kick it up a notch by ordering the Spicy Big Tex Gift Box. Take my word, be sure you have your Big Tex Shooter Glass nearby when you dip into the Jalapeño Peach Jam or Fiery Habanero BBQ Sauce to soften the blow.
Even though Big Tex lives up to his name of all things big, he too enjoys a good deal spending a little less. That’s why right now you can get a special deal on the Big Tex Gift Box at $39.95.
As Fall rolls around this year and you make plans to take your family to the 2013 Texas State Fair for games, fried food, music, and rides you won’t have to wonder if Big Tex will be there. He will be standing tall and proud at the Fair Park entrance welcoming you with his famous “Hooooooowwwdee, fooolllks!”
