2005 Big Texas Choice Awards descriptions

Vegas Fried Ice Cream:  Combination peanut butter/bananas/and rock ’n’ roll in a tasty fried ice cream ball. Topped with a special banana pie sauce, it’s accompanied by a guitar-shaped buñuelo striped with peanut butter. So good it’ll make your leg start a-shakin’!

Fried PBJ and Banana Sandwich:  An old favorite kicked up a notch for the State Fair! A carefully made peanut butter, jelly and banana sandwich, that’s frozen, dipped in a special batter, quick fried and dusted with powdered sugar. A delicious hot-and-cold sensation!

Sweet Potato Fries:  Piping-hot sweet potato fries sprinkled with Lawry’s seasoned salt, covered in shredded cheddar cheese and broiled to perfection. Brown sugar and cayenne pepper are dusted on the fries followed by a topping of crumbled bacon. Served with a side of Ranch dipping sauce.

Fried Italian Meatballs:  Delicious Italian-style meatballs battered and fried to a golden brown; plump and juicy inside and crunchy on the outside. The meatballs are served with a side of dipping sauce.

Fried Coconut Coated Pineapple Rings:  Newly manufactured product consisting of silver dollar sized pineapple slices, lightly battered with a coconut breading. Deep fried to perfection, sprinkled with powdered sugar and topped with whip crème, a cherry and a tiny paper umbrella!

White Chocolate Bread Pudding:  Generous chunks of fresh French bread soaked in a creamy custard of rich white chocolate and baked until golden brown. Hefty portions are served warm and drenched in a white chocolate cream sauce.

Awesome Bread Pudding Wrap:  Special-recipe bread pudding with rum sauce gently wrapped in a flour tortilla. Flash-fried, it’s dusted with a combination of cinnamon and sugar and then frozen. Final product is finished in deep fryer, oven or microwave.
