This year, the Arizona State Fair's slogan seems to be, "If it doesn't run away fast enough, cover it with bacon."

The Guilty Pleasure: You name it, deep-fried, bacon-crusted, and/or chocolate covered.
Where to Get It: The Arizona State Fair, October 11 through November 3 (closed Mondays and Tuesdays)
Price: Fair admission plus a few bucks.
What It Really Costs: Your waistline is already quaking with fear, isn't it?

Guilty pleasure food lovers, our peak season is almost upon us. The Arizona State Fair opens on Friday. We couldn't resist getting in touch with the folks at the Fair to see what the food vendors have up their sleeves this year.

It looks as though the fair forecast is sunny with a chance of bacon. Seriously, on the preview list I received, over half of the vendors will serve something that involves bacon. One of the more restrained bacon dishes is from the Corn Shack, offering a cup of corn topped with bacon and blue cheese. I may have to throw that together as a side dish at home some time.

Once you get past the Corn Shack's relatively tame bacon dish, all bets are off. Leading the bacon brigade this year is the cleverly named Bacon-A-Fair, which will offer bacon everything, from bacon-wrapped jalapeños to chocolate covered bacon and everything in between. Bacon-wrapped turkey legs? You got it. Bacon-wrapped corn dogs? Of course. Cheesy bacon bombs? I have no idea what they are, but I'll take two, please.

@Judy Boody My favorite thing was one I didn't even notice until I got there: Deep-fried Nutella. Oh man, it was wonderful.

@Rob Bot The way I ate once I got there? More like "in five minutes".

@Kelly O'Brien I don't know how that doesn't exist yet. For some reason, funnel cake is exclusively a sweet, when it would make an excellent platform for savory things like bacon and cheese.
