Who Invented the Corn Dog?

The corn dog was invented by Neil Fletcher in 1942 for the Texas State Fair. These hot dogs dipped in corn batter, deep fried and served on a stick have been a favorite of fair goers ever since.

Today there are variations of the original including turkey dogs, chick dogs, and even vegetarian corn dogs. Batters vary now with spices and herbs. Corn dogs eaters usually dip their dogs in mustard or catsup.

Everyone knows that Southerners love to fry food, but nobody does it like the food vendors at the Texas State Fair. You will find all kinds of fried eats, some great and some really weird. The 2006 state fair introduced the Fried Praline Perfection, plump coconut and pecan pralines are battered and fried to a rich golden crust and served warm with powdered sugar. Concessionaire Abel Gonzales won 1st place for Most Creative with Fried Coke. Smooth spheres of Coca-Cola-flavored batter are deep fried, drizzled with pure Coke fountain syrup, topped with whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and a cherry. The product is served in souvenir contoured glasses.
