The Public Opinion Research poll questioned 400 residents of New York and New Jersey about their favorite foods to eat when at a summer fair. Twenty-five percent said funnel cakes, while 23% said hot dogs and 12% answered sausage and peppers.


"Summer fairs are all about indulging in special foods. Where else can you get a deep-fried Oreo, funnel cake, cotton candy and a corn dog all in one place? Part of the fun of a fair is in seeking out those special treats that bring out the kid in all of us," says Al Dorso, President of State Fair Meadowlands.
