Forget swimsuit season – its Spring festival season in Southwest Louisiana and I’ve got a sweet tooth, y’all!
A 100% MUST at any fair or festival. It’s more than just fried dough, y’all. It’s a part of festival living. Part of the fun is trying not to get the sugar all over your face. Little Hint: You’ll have sugar all over your face.
Let’s just think about this for a second. Mmmm. Now let’s add it to on top of the funnel cake! This sweet and savory treat is featured at Louisiana Pirate Festival.
I have an intense love for mayhaw jelly because my dad makes it every year! Lucky for me, the town of Starks celebrates this little berry with a festival. Fall in love with this sugar sweet jelly at the Starks Mayhaw Festival.
It’s Louisiana’s ultimate icon of Southern fried dough. All hail the beignet.
Who would have thought a little brown sugar, evaporated milk, butter and pecan halves could make something so heavenly. *Drools*
Fried Treats (oreos, twinkies, snickers, etc.)
What a brilliant idea! We all know frying something makes it a million times tasty AND cancels all the bad calories. (wink wink)
SnoCones / SnoBalls
We’ve got something special in Lake Charles. They are frozen, creatively flavor and full of 80s flare: Pops and Rockets popsicles are one of a kind and super delish. You’ll find the pop mobile at Downtown at Sundown.
Sticking with the frozen theme, every good festival should end with a strawberry daiquiri. Even if that means visiting one of the drive-thru daiquiri shops!
