There are certain foods that are synonymous with the State Fair of Texas. Must-have items like corny dogs and funnel cakes may come to mind.
The woman who gets credit for one of the fair's most famous snacks says she just happened upon them during a family vacation.
"We were coming through Branson, Missouri, and we saw them there," said 91-year-old Wanda "Fernie" Winter.
The latest news from around North Texas.
These days she's known as the "Funnel Cake Queen."
"A lot of people have tried to sell them, but they don't sell them near as good as we do," Winter joked.
She first brought her funnel cakes to Fair Park in the early 1980s.
While she didn't create them, she does get credit for perfecting them.
