    Scenes around the Iowa State Fair on August 14, 2015 in Des Moines, Iowa. The Iowa State Fair is one of the oldest and largest agricultural and industrial expositions in the United States. The annual fair, the largest event in Iowa, attracts over a million visitors each year. The fair runs through August 23.

    The Iowa State Fair, since its humble beginning in 1854, has come to be known for proud traditions like the being on the National Register of Historic Places, the political soapbox, hosting the who's who of presidential candidates meeting would-be caucus goers — and, of course, deep fried, unhealthy food on a stick.

    And it's not just some foods — it's not even just foods that are stick-worthy, like apples — it's everything: Snickers, Cupcakes, Twinkies, double bacon wrapped corn dogs, butter, Kool-Aid, cherry pie, apple pie, cheese.

    All deep fried.
