What's in the deep fryer this year?

Bryan "The Candyman" Shankman's booth is located close to the Maryland Foods Pavilion. You might find some other deep-fried marvels on the Midway but Shankman is the pro. He introduced deep-fried Buckeyes to the Maryland State Fair -- they were a huge hit. But don't look for those deep-fried sticks of butter like they had in Iowa, and definitely not the deep-fried Kool-Aid you heard about --"Honestly, it was terrible," Shankman says.
