  Most Creative award winner: Funnel Cake Ale  

DALLAS (AP) — A Cajun creation and funnel cake flavored beer have won the culinary competition ahead of this year’s State Fair of Texas.

Fair officials in Dallas on Monday announced the winners for the Best Tasting and Most Creative new foods at the expo.

The Best Tasting Award was won by a fried Gulf shrimp boil — baby Gulf shrimp, diced red potatoes, onion, lemon, and seasoning formed around a cocktail shrimp, dusted, fried and served with a remoulade sauce.

The award for Most Creative went to Funnel Cake Ale — a beer that reminds drinkers of one of the telltale flavors of the fair.

The winners were among eight finalists that will be for sale during the State Fair of Texas, which runs from Sept. 26 to Oct. 19.
