It's official! The cotton candy taco was the big winner Sunday night in Fair Park on Sunday. The crazy concoction won "most creative" during the 2018 Big Tex Choice Awards. The ceremony crowned two other winners, too: including Fernie's Hoppin' John Cake, featuring white rice, black-eyed-peas, sausage, jalapenos, and cheese all deep-fried, which was the judges' pick for "best taste - savory." A dessert called Arroz con leche, fried "Mexican morning oatmeal" won "best taste - sweet."
The State Fair of Texas opens Sunday, September 28th and runs through October 21st
