Festival Food - No Thanks!

Festival Food, Asheville, NC  -  2013

I think I'm a bit overdue for a rant, so here goes.

It's always tempting. The aromas wafting from festival food vendors always smell so good! But I've been disappointed so many times by the flavor, or rather, lack of flavor, that I usually just keep on walking. 

Six dollars for a funnel cake? Weren't they four dollars last year? That's another reason I keep walking. Let's see, $8 for a greasy Polish sausage sandwich, $4 for a drink, $6 for a funnel cake - whoa! Getting hosed for mediocre tasting food doesn't add to my fun at fairs and festivals. For the same money I can get a decent meal at a real restaurant like Papas And Beer on the way home. And I won't have to balance my plate on my lap while I eat.

  1. Yes, I feel the same way. The cost for those things is way out of line.
    We even stayed away from the State Fair this year.
    $12.00 to park and $10. to 12.00 just to get in blows a lot of money and the day hasn't begun.
