(San Diego, CA) Every summer San Diego County Fair bring out their best in unique eats, special events and crowd-pleasing family friendly entertainment to the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

During a media preview party, vendors were on fair grounds serving up fair favorites–County Fair Cinnamon Rolls, Pinks Hot Dogs and, Chicken Charlie’s. Debuting this year are two new tasty treats–Mexican Funnel cake, which is a yummy Deep-Fried Starbucks and, Sweet Corn Ice cream, served in a real corn husk.

And, what some might refer to as an “heart attack waiting to happen,” the triple decker Krispy Kreme burger consisting of cheeseburger patties sandwiched between two glazed donut buns, which made it’s debut last year, is back again this year. That’s just to name a few out of a long list of bizarre fair food items to choose from.
