Re: Knott's to make chocolate and bacon funnel cake permanent!
And just to make sure that I am not being hypocritical, I will say that I'll *definitely* be ordering one of those on my next trip to the Farm. Junk food is only unhealthy when you eat it all the time, having it once in a while does nothing to hurt anyone's health. Just look at what happens if you exercise intensely for 1 day... you won't really get very far in improving your health, it's the same with eating horrible foods.
If someone's regular diet is Big Macs and cheese fries, a bacon-chocolate funnel cake isn't exactly a once-in-a-while "treat". But if you generally eat healthy throughout the week, these bacon wonders are just about as good as life gets! It makes a wonderful time at the Farm into an extraordinarily mind-blowingly fun day at the Farm.
Taking away all the junk food at fairs would be sacrilege. I think it's disgraceful how we have soda machines at elementary schools and fast food dedicated towards children, but eating extremely poorly at a fair is every American's god-given right. There's a time and place for all this stuff and Knott's and county fairs are *definitely* the right place for it!
