Gothamist reports that some decadent Canadians recently upped the ante in the ongoing effort to create the world’s most over-the-top, and often (but not always) deep-fried state fair food.
The annual Canadian National Exhibition, the country’s largest fair, runs from August 17th to September 3rd:
"Like American state fairs, there are concerts, rides and insane food options. Possibly putting California’s deep-fried cereal to shame, the Canadians are unleashing the eclair dog—A HOT DOG SERVED IN A CHOCOLATE ECLAIR.”
The eclair dog is was created by Maple Lodge Farms, and is exactly what it looks and sounds like. It’s a grilled hot dog nestled in a sliced chocolate eclair that serves as the requisite bun and topped with whipped cream and festive sprinkles. The fair ends soon, but if you don’t have time to get to Toronto, provided you have a good source for eclairs, this looks like something one could easily prepare at home.
One question remains - do they serve this little wonder with a side of poutine?
