State Fair Foods Are Coming to Wal-Mart
Soon you'll be able to get some deep-fried Twinkies while you're picking up a Snuggie and a car battery.
Wal-Mart is adding a new restaurant inside Treasure Valley stores, and it's inspired by State Fair Foods. Even fried meatloaf!
State Fairs across the country have a reputation for getting wild with the food options, and Grubstreet says Wal-Mart is going to make a restaurant out of all of that fattening goodness.
Among the items on the menu at the new store-based restaurants: fried Jell-O, fried butter, fried Coke, fried meatloaf, fried Thanksgiving dinner, chicken-fried lobster, and funnel cake ale.
Isaac Russo used to be just a guy who created odd foods and won awards at the Texas state fair every year, but now he's moving into the restaurant business and it just so happens that Wal-Mart is a great fit. The plan is to start in Texas this month, and spread out from there. I wonder how that deep-fried smell will mix with the fresh-baked bread smell that most Wal-Marts are working with. Hmm.
Now, if only Wal-mart would add some games like that claw that tries to grab a stuffed animal. Oh wait! Many locations have that too. A Super Hammer Roller Coaster maybe...
