The state fair's signature food: Spaghetti ice cream?

The Indiana State Fair has named this year's official signature state fair food. In stiff competition, the victorious food is ... spaghetti ice cream?

2012 has been themed The Year of the Dairy Cow, and online voters had an opportunity to choose their favorite of six dairy-based treats, including blue ribbon cannoli (which I'd pick to be the winner in all the food contests, even in some like "Best Burger").

Before you get all grossed out -- as I was initially -- check out the dish's description: "spaghetti-shaped Italian ice cream with strawberry 'tomato sauce,' shaved white chocolate cheese and chocolate 'meat balls.' "

Anyone planning on making a trek to the state fair, which is scheduled to run from Aug. 3 to 19? If so, do you think you'll give this sundae a try?
