Lobster, alligator and buffalo fried delicacies are among the eight finalists for this year’s State Fair of Texas best tasting and most creative foods.

Best Tasting award went to Christi Erpillo for Fernie’s Holy Moly Carrot Cake Roly, while Isaac Rousso takes the title of Most Creative for his Smoky Bacon Margarita. In addition to their winning titles, both champions received a set of Michelin Defender LTX tires as an added bonus.

A finalist in nine of the past 11 competitions, Erpillo is no stranger to the Big Tex Choice Awards – or the State Fair of Texas for that matter. Serving as concessionaires at the Fair for 47 years now, Christi’s family is known for first introducing the funnel cake to the State Fair of Texas in the early 1980s.

The other finalist foods include fried cowboy corn crunch, with sweet corn, jalapeno, cream cheese and a hint of smoky bacon.

The Lone Star pork handle includes a marinated chop, dipped in batter and deep fried.

Pretzel-crusted pollo queso features shredded chicken, cheese and bacon rolled into a ball, crusted with pretzel breading and fried.

The State Fair of Texas runs Sept. 25 through Oct. 18.
