DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Fans of the State Fair of Texas can look forward to nibbling on fried Jell-O or a crinkly cookie-like treat as the top two food winners for the upcoming expo in Dallas.

Fair officials on Sunday announced that Fried Jell-O was selected as the Most Creative item at this year’s Big Tex Choice Awards. The State Fair Cookie Fries won for Best Taste.

It was less then two weeks ago that the State Fair of Texas announced the eight finalists for the best culinary creations. The entrants were evaluated on four elements: uniqueness, creativity, presentation, and taste.

The fair opens September 30 and runs through October 23.
