State and county fairs are being cancelled nationwide this summer due to concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In some areas, the fairs are even being modified as drive-thrus so people can still get their share of carnival foods. No matter what's happening in your area, there are s0me products you can pick up at the grocery store so you don't totally miss out on your favorite snacks. Take these Herr's funnel cake-flavored snack balls, for example, that add a fun twist to the dessert you know and love.
Cotton candy popcorn (posted yesterday) and now @herrs.snacks funnel cake flavored snacks balls... it’s like all of the fairs in the USA are not cancelled this year! The fair is my favorite. Super upset that they’ve all been cancelled. Either way... better safe than sorry! I’ll just eat these and my cotton candy popcorn and reminisce. . . . #junkfood #junkfoodjunkie #junkfoodie #junkfoodlover #junkfoods #foodie #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #foodiegram #foodielife #foodiepics #food52 #snacktime #snack #yummy #yum #yummyinmytummy #yummyfood #foodporn #foodgasm #foodstagram #foodblogger #cottoncandy #popcorn🍿 #carnival #fair #flexibledieting #flexibleeating #funnelcake #funnelcakes

When you go to the fair, you probably make a beeline straight to the funnel cake stand upon arrival. It's a delicious treat that many don't know how to make at home (although there are super simple kits you can buy at Aldi if you want to try it out). But for those who want to avoid a kitchen disaster, Herr's makes bite-sized snack balls that taste just like funnel cake.
Herr's snack balls are a similar texture to a cheese puff, but the brand is constantly raising the bar with unexpected flavors. The snack balls come in flavors like cotton candy and cookies 'n cream Dippin' Dots, so you can really get all of your carnival go-tos in snackable form.
Although these funnel cake ones don't have the same fluffy consistency of an actual funnel cake, the coating is sweet, crunchy, and gluten-free, so you can get the gist of funnel cake flavor even if your local fair is cancelled this year. These bite-sized snacks will definitely hold you over until you learn how to make real funnel cake or until next year's fair...whichever of the two comes first.
