More proof bacon makes everything better

Two amazing products at this year's Ohio State Fair affirm what we already knew: Bacon is a superfood for all occasions.

First, behold the maple bacon funnel cake.

This proved to be a fantastic combination. Of course it's hard to mess up fried dough, but this worked even better than I anticipated because of the combo of sweet and savory. Then there was twist on another fair favorite that is much newer: deep-fried Buckeye candy.

I was looking forward to this all week, and it did not disappoint.

The dough-chocolate-peanut butter combo was already awesome, but the salt of the bacon put it over the top and provided a little more backbone to the texture.

Mmm, mmm good!

And if you need to balance it out with something healthier, hit up one of the places with the Dole whip.

It's got fruit, so it has to be healthy, right? Funnel cakes and Buckeye candy and bacon, oh my!
