The hottest food at the State Fair this is year is the Pig Licker. Which isn't surprising when you consider the combination of bacon, chocolate, and salt pretty much covers all the key taste sensations. The only way to make it better is to wash it down with a beer.
We interviewed Charlie Torgerson from Famous Dave's on Saturday. He gave us the back story on Pig Lickers, talked about their phenomenal success thus far at the Fair, and provided us with samples. You can listen to that interview here.
After downing a couple, we could all understand why people were lining up for the chance to shell out five bucks for a cup o' Lickers. They really are worthy of the hype.
