You're probably wondering, "Who doesn't love fair food?". But there are fair food haters out there. I don't know them personally, but they exist. So I hear.

Proof positive is this new state fair food survey that has some surprising results. The state that loves its fair food the most is Vermont. I was sure it would be a midwestern state or even Texas. But Vermont? Hmm.

The Texas State Fair attracts two and a quarter million people every year making it the largest state fair in the country!
