Opening weekend of the annual Orange County Fair took place this past weekend. As it does every year, the OC Fair this runs Wednesday through Sunday each week starting July 14 with the final day on August 13. The fairgrounds open 12pm until 12am on weekdays, and 10am to 12am on weekends. Every year, a new food gets introduced, such as deep-fried Kool Aid, donut cheeseburgers, or the Pepsi Dog. This year, the OC Fair has delivered yet again with a slew of new foods. Lots of the new items have piqued the interests of many, but only one truly caught my eye instantly – the Unicorn Leg. They call it that due to the rarity of the pig that it comes from, but this Unicorn Leg basically represents an entire pork leg with meat all around the bone. Basically, you get five pounds of meat on a stick. That weight does not include the bone, so the entire thing weighs more than five pounds. If you order one, you may struggle to hold it with one hand! This massive plate of meat will set you back $29, and with all that meat, I highly advise sharing it with friends or family.

Watch my visit to this year’s OC Fair below, as I walk through the fairgrounds and finally lay claim to the fabled Unicorn Leg. If it does not play, click here to watch the video.
