I didn't want to try anything that conventional.
So I walked up to the catch-all stand – fried veggies and korn fritters along with shaved ice. I saw "cheese sticks" and I thought a bit. Obviously, it wouldn't be like a normal mozzarella stick because it would be called a mozzarella stick, and that wouldn't be fair enough. I thought maybe cheddar, or American, which would likely make me hurl.
I took the plunge, and obviously they were mozzarella sticks. I think. It tasted like cheap pieces of string cheese dropped in a deep fryer for about a half an hour and topped with some phantom seasoning that I couldn't taste.
Hey it was edible, and other than the streak of hot grease, not bad. Though it did cost $6.25.
Though I am unclear about why the woman at the booth told me to get ketchup.
