BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — It's state fair season around the country, the time of year for over-the-top food.

The New York State Fair opened in Syracuse this week with an offering called a "Twinx." It's a Twinkie stuffed with a Twix candy bar, wrapped in bacon, deep fried and drizzled with chocolate-caramel sauce.

Creators of fair concoctions say they work all year to outdo themselves and the other vendors vying for the attention of an ever more expectant public.

Despite fat and calorie counts that would make anyone cringe, Lucy Long of the Center for Food and Culture in Bowling Green, Ohio, says fair food can be good for you — at least psychologically. She says that's because occasionally indulging reinforces better habits and satisfies the craving for novelty.
