    The "Funnel Cake Bacon Queso Burger" cleans up at the annual Big Tex Choice Awards.

    The creation walked away with two awards including one for "Best Taste - Savory" and a second for "Most Creative."

    Tom Grace came up with the idea, which uses funnel cakes for the buns of a bacon queso cheeseburger.

    The third award for "Beat Taste - Sweet" went to Clint Probst for his "Gulf Coast Fish Bowl" creation.

    The fun drink has gravel made out of Nerds, then filled with blue tropical flavored punch. Swedish Fish are then added to the alcoholic beverage.

    You can try out all of the food at the State Fair of Texas which opens on Friday September 29 and runs through Sunday October 22.
