TLC At the Carnival - Foods

The Lost Challenges discussion on goodreads


At the Carnival - Foods 
Duration: 3 months from the starting date.

Where people gather, food is eaten. A trip to a carnival or fair is not complete without some of these foods in everyone's belly.

Caramel Apples - are created by dipping or rolling apples-on-a-stick in hot caramel, sometimes then rolling them in nuts or other small savories or confections, and allowing them to cool. Classically, the preferred apples for use in caramel apples are tart, crisp apples such as Granny Smith or Fuji apples.
Read a book with a "caramel" colored cover OR with a character that is a Granny. 
Please post the cover, if using that option.

Corn Dogs - Newly arrived German Texan sausage-makers, finding resistance to the sausages they used to make, have been credited with introducing the corn dog to the United States, though the serving stick came later.
Read a book set in Texas OR where a character eats a corn dog, hot dog or sausage.

Read a book that has a two word title AND one of the words contains a 5 or 6 letter word.
Almost Perfect Julie Ortolon 8/4/17

French Fries - There is a dispute whether french fries originated in Belgium or France. Some people believe that the term "French fries" for deep fried potato batons was introduced when American soldiers arrived in Belgium during World War I. The Belgians had previously been catering to the British soldiers' love of chips and continued to serve them to the Americans when they took over the western end of the front. The Americans supposedly took them to be French fried potatoes because they believed themselves to be in France, French being the local language and the official language of the Belgian Army at that time. 
Read a book with a character that is/has served in the military OR with a title that has at least two words that start with the same letter.
Any Time, Any Place Jennifer Probst 8/7/17

Fried Candy Bars - A deep fried Mars bar is said to have been created in 1995 in the Haven Chip Bar (now the Carron) in Stonehaven, near Aberdeen on Scotland's northeast coast. It was mentioned in 2004 by Jay Leno on NBC's Tonight Show in the US. State Fairs started deep frying all kinds of candy bars and cookies. Snickers and Oreos are among the most popular.
Read a book with CANDY or BAR(S) in the title or series name OR set in Scotland.
Love Beyond Dreams Bethany Claire 8/25/17

Fried Pickles are a snack food found commonly in the Southern U.S.. They are made by deep-frying sliced battered dill pickles.

Funnel Cake - Pennsylvania German immigrants brought the yeast dish, known as Drechderkuche, to America and around 1879 developed the baking powder version along with its new name, funnel cake. When made at concession stands, a pitcher with an integral funnel spout is used to pour the batter into hot cooking oil in a circular pattern and deep frying the overlapping mass until golden-brown.

Onion rings - are a form of appetizer or side dish commonly found in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and some parts of Asia and Continental Europe. They generally consist of a cross-sectional "ring" of onion (the circular structure of which lends itself well to this method of preparation) dipped in batter or bread crumbs and then deep fried.
