Last year , the new food items to the Arizona State Fair were the deep-fried Red Velvet Cupcake and the Spaghetti Ice Cream. (We're still a little weirded out by how much it looked like spaghetti noodles).
 
This year, the deep-fried menu has expanded with a powerhouse of new items that you definitely will not want to tell your doctor about. Anyone up for trying the deep-fried banana split or the bacon Nutella pickle?
 
The state fair opens Oct. 7 - 30. General admission is $10, but there are a bunch of ways you can score discounted tickets .
