Big Eats at the Houston Rodeo
When it comes to food, Rodeo patrons have a lot to choose from.
In the old days, carnival food was simple; sausage on a stick, cotton candy or plain old caramel-dipped apples would have done the trick. But things have advanced and Rodeo grub is no exception.
Fried Oreos, corn on the cob sprinkled with flaming-hot Cheetos crumbs, popcorn frozen in liquid nitrogen that taste like icy Captain Crunch cereal - all have a home at the 2017 Houston Rodeo & Livestock Show carnival. People line up for these culinary customs.
One of the great traits of the Rodeo is that you can eat all kinds of food that you would otherwise never have the opportunity to try. At the carnival, I indulged in fried pickles, strawberry funnel cake, nitro slushy popcorn and a hunk of turkey leg. Normally I wouldn’t order a plate of fried pickles for an appetizer before moving on to candy-flavored popcorn. But at the Rodeo, gastronomically anything goes.
