The Craziest Fair Desserts from Carnival Eats


Whether they're deep-fried or bacon-covered, these classic confections are worth the glucose spike.


Bacon Cinnamon Roll Sundae

Our carnival don't want none of that unless you got ice cream-topped bacon cinnamon buns, hun.

Dirt Road Banana Split

Get your daily serving of fruit with strawberry, cherry, banana and pineapple ice cream on top of a warm brownie.

Fried Fruit Punch

Yes, you really can fry anything — even your favorite childhood drink.

King's Corn Dog

Elvis would devour this banana-and-chocolate-chip-battered corn dog dipped in peanut butter.

Crackle Lantern

It doesn't have to be Halloween for you to enjoy a spiced pumpkin puree-filled gourd with a bruleed top.

Massive Marshmallow Crunch

Take the Chubby Bunny challenge with three deep-fried marshmallows drizzled with caramel, chocolate sauce, powdered sugar and toffee chunks.

Twisted S'more

It's s'more fun when peanut butter, roasted marshmallows and chocolate sauce come together.

Deep-Fried Banana Pudding

This twist on the classic Southern dessert is egg roll wrappers filled with sliced bananas, fried, then topped with vanilla pudding, chocolate sauce and vanilla wafers.

Deep-Fried Banana Split

Carnival Eats host Noah Cappe went bananas for this fried sundae, and let's be honest: It'd be gone lickety-split if you got your hands on one.

Birthday Cake Crepe

This is one wacky way to party like it's your birthday. Layers of thin crepes, frosting and strawberries are topped with festive sprinkles. All you need to do is add a few candles.

Tropical Tantalizer

The second-best thing to a Caribbean vacation is dark-rum-soaked grilled pineapple and pound cake topped with two huge scoops of ice cream.

Crispy Bacon Crunch

Take a deep breath, because this dangerous dessert is a real mouthful. The Crispy Bacon Crunch is a cookie fried inside an egg roll topped with maple glaze and bacon.

Salted Caramel Apple Gelato

Layers of creamy vanilla gelato, green-apple shaved ice and slices of apple pie meet in this fully stacked dessert. 

Cheesecake Burrito

Deep-fried cheesecake is one thing, but when it's supersized and drizzled with blackberry, strawberry and chocolate sauces, it's simply irresistible. 

Hazelnutty Deep-Fried Pop

Mind-blowing fact: Popsicles can be deep-fried. This hazelnut ice pop is battered, fried and then drizzled with caramel sauce.

Dream Puffs

Fried cream puffs are fluffy and cloudlike on the inside and crunchy on the outside, so it's basically like living in a dream world when you eat them.

Bacon Screamer

Instead of cookies or cupcakes or even churros, this ice cream is sandwiched between slabs of bacon. Oink, oink.

Fried Cookie Dough

The only thing better than licking cookie batter from the bowl is rolling it into balls, skewering them and deep-frying a bunch.

Turtle Funnel Cake

Fried dough is smothered in cream cheese icing, chocolate, pecans and caramel for an out-of-this-world decadent treat.

Rocky Road Caramel Apple

If your favorite ice cream and a caramel apple had a baby, this would be it.

Inside-Out Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

It's a mouthful to say and even more of a mouthful to eat. Imagine your favorite pineapple upside-down cake on a stick. Heaven, right?

Chocolate-Covered Bacon

Sprinkles and nuts add an extra crunch, just in case the bacon wasn't enough.

Deep-Fried PB&J Brownie Bite

All peanut butter and jelly sandwiches should be made with brownies for bread. As if that weren't enough, the whole thing is deep-fried afterward.

Fudge Puppy

When waffles are dipped in melted chocolate and sprinkled with candy, they become outrageous fudge puppies. Woof.

Fried Bread Pudding

These doughnut-inspired bread pudding bites are perfect for popping in your mouth while you're on the go, in search of another deep-fried food at the fair.

Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwich

You'll dough nuts for this melty and delicious spin on the traditional ice cream sandwich.

Deep-Fried Watermelon

Because fruit isn't made to be healthy, right?

Bacon Bomber

Chocolate and peanut butter combine for a deep-fried delight on a stick before getting a coating of crunchy bacon. Sweet and salty is the way to go.

Funnel Cake Dog

All food is better on a stick — especially a funnel cake dog, aka the sweet version of a corn dog.

Maple-Bacon Funnel Cake

Fried dough with bacon and maple syrup is the breakfast of champions.
