I played hooky from work today and visited the State Fair of Texas with some friends. Let me tell you, it was awesome. We wandered the entire park noshing on every single one of the Big Tex Choice finalists. Our favorite, by a mile was Fernie’s Down home Chicken Pot Pie Pocket. The chicken was tender and tasty, the veggies were crisp and the fried wrapper tasted just like the crust on the chicken pot pies grandma used to make from scratch. The macaroni & cheese dip was hit or miss, I liked it, others didn’t.


The other favorite was the Dr Pepper® Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. None of us could figure out why it wasn’t a finalist. It tasted much better than just about everything else we tried there. Oh well, maybe it wasn’t over-the-top enough for Big Tex!


If you get the chance, head over to the State Fair of Texas and try out both of these delicacies. I’d love to hear what your thoughts are. Did you like the Chicken Pot Pie Pocket as much as we did?
