Big Tex Best Taste Choice Award Goes To Fernie's Holy Moly Carrot Cake Roly

Well, we were sure Chicken Fried Lobster with Champagne Gravy or Deep Fried Alligator's Egg Nest, one or the other, would be the surefire winner of the State Fair of Texas Big Tex Choice Award for Best Taste.

Instead the coveted Best Taste Award went to Fernie's Holy Moly Carrot Cake Roly by Christi Erpillo

One would have thought the Holy Moly Roly part of the name would have been enough to leave  a bad taste in the mouth of the taste testers.

You have to be 21 years old, or older, to sample the winner of the Big Tex Choice Most Creative Award because that award went to the Smoky Bacon Margarita created by Isaac Rousso who somehow was able to infuse a frozen lime-based Margarita with smoky bacon.

Seems a bit odd to give a State Fair Food Award to an alcohol concoction that fairgoing kids can not imbibe in.

You can read the descriptive details of all the Deep Fried Finalists, and the one non-Deep Fried Finalist, in our previous blog post about the 2015 Big Tex Choice Awards Finalists.
