A deep-fried, macaroni-and-cheese topped burger sounds kind of interesting.
But is it really worth risking all that cash?
Today’s the day that you can set that Kansas State Fair fear aside and sample weird food with reckless abandon.
Organizers are calling their new program “$2 Tasting Tuesday,” which means that for today only, you can roam the fair grounds and order sample-sized versions of any food you desire for just $2.

Sue Stoecklein, who is the fair’s longtime director of commercial exhibits, started the program this year as a way to get crowds on the fairgrounds on one of its traditionally slowest days. It’s also designed to let people try some of the fair’s more risky offerings (calf fries, anyone?) and not spend too much. All the food vendors agreed to participate, meaning that a fairgoer with a $20 bill could try samples of 10 different foods they’ve always wondered about.
The deal is offered only today.

The Kansas State Fair continues on the fairgrounds in Hutchinson through Sunday.
