Number 6 - The Elephant Ear

Oh yeah, sugar coated fried dough. Man food number 6 has to be the all time favorite Elephant Ear. Very popular in the United State the Elephant Ear and its cousin the Funnel Cake can be found at nearly all summertime festivities. While many top it with a cinnamon sugar mix others add in a delicious fruit topping such as strawberry or blueberry.

Did you also know that in Canada the Elephant Ear goes by the name Beaver tails? It has also been called fry dough, whales tails, tiger ears, pizza fritas, frying saucers, buñuelos and doughboys. Later today we get chippy with number 5 as the countdown continues on Fair Week.
