Dietician's nightmare: NC State Fair announces 2019 menu

The North Carolina State Fair has announced its diet-destroying, belly-busting menu for 2019, and includes a variety of old standards and new concoctions

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The North Carolina State Fair, where diets meet their demise, has released its belly-busting menu for 2019, and it includes some new concoctions.

About two dozen creations have made the list for the first time. One vendor is offering a red velvet funnel cake topped with cheese and enchilada sauces. Another will sell a jalapeno pepper stuffed with cheese and brisket, frying it up and serving it on a stick.

Fair goers can also enjoy a golden fried chicken breast nestled in a cinnamon bun, topped with pepper jack cheese and crispy bacon and drizzled with a zesty honey sauce.

This year's fair runs from Oct. 17 through Oct. 27.
