Smoky Bacon Margarita, Chicken Fried Lobster on the 2015 State Fair of Texas menu

It’s almost time for the State Fair of Texas and that means a new menu of fried favorites.

On Tuesday fair organizers announced this year’s eight finalists for the “Big Tex Choice Awards."

They include fried lobster, alligator and buffalo delicacies.

There's also a fried cowboy corn crunch with sweet corn, jalapeno, cream cheese and a hint of smoky bacon.

Fernie's holy moly carrot cake roly has carrot cake coated with cream cheese.

The Lone star pork handle includes a marinated chop, dipped in batter and deep fried.

Pretzel-crusted pollo queso features shredded chicken, cheese and bacon rolled into a ball, crusted with pretzel breading and fried.

And, the smoky bacon margarita is self-explanatory.

The finalists will compete on Aug. 30 for the title of Most Creative and Best Tasting. The competition is judged by a panel of celebrity judges and open to the public.

The fair runs from Sept. 25 to Oct. 18.
