If a spin on the Gravitron wasn’t stomach-churning enough, adventurous epicureans at the Arizona State Fair have the option of dining on Chef John’s scorpions — or crickets and grubs, if you prefer — that have been deep-fried, smothered in chocolate and skewered on a stick. And now we know where the term “not for a million bucks” comes from. In all seriousness, crunchy fried scorpion treats aren’t just a “Fear Factor”-ish state fair novelty — the arachnids have long been considered a delicacy in China. Still, we think we’ll pass … and probably not for the reindeer dogs, smoked lizard, rocky mountain oysters (bull testicles) and sautéed mealworm caramel apples, all which can also be found at the Arizona State Fair.
