LA County Fair Foods – NBC Los Angeles

LA County Fair, the quirky, cute mega-midway-esque spectacular, celebrates its centennial in 2022 and its first spring affair.

Granted, the Pomona Festival has long been a late-summer staple, but the event, “one of the biggest county fairs in the country,” opened on May 5, a date change. caused in part by cancellations in 2020 and 2021 (when a small fall food festival took place).

So you can bet appetite-driven adventurers, those fair-goers who seek out the fantastic food items first, are ready for the latest in culinary creations, whimsical, photo-worthy treats, on a stick and in the belly that the 2022 fair has to offer.

Take a look below at some of the temptations, including, you bet, the signature snack of the Spring Celebration: Chicken Charlie’s new Cherry Kool-Aid Chicken Sandwich.

Chicken Charlie’s has become synonymous with decadent desserts, including this one: Deep-Fried Cheesecake.

The quirky restaurant also makes fried strawberry encrustables.

The Candy Factory Unicorn Float is full of fun and flair.

Rainbows are found in all the food stalls at the fair, including this rainbow of grilled cheese goodness.

Deep-Friend chimichanga, delish: This treat contains Buffalo chicken as well as macaroni and cheese.
