When it comes to the Nevada County Fair, there’s always one question that permeates the masses: Is it worth the wait to get a Job’s Daughters corn dog?
The Union Sports Editor Walter Ford and City Editor Ross Maak joined intern Andrew Rolland on a Wednesday afternoon mission to find out.
The Job’s Daughters corn dog stand — a venue that stands watch at the eastern entrance of the famed “Treat Street” — always has a line. Sometimes it’s shorter than others, but if you can get your hands on this battered delicacy in less than 15 minutes, consider yourself lucky.
In our case, we chose to split up to hit as many different offerings as we felt our stomachs could handle. Maak went for the corn dog line, the top of the list, while Ford started with the second stop on the list. Then Ford went to the third. And fourth. And fifth. And sixth.
He returned in time to see Maak just about five minutes away from achieving success.
When the dust settled, the trio sat down to a feast of a corn dog and a nacho cheese corn dog from Job’s Daughters, deep fried shrimp and chicken on a bed of fries from Gold Country Kiwanis, a loaded baked potato from the Rough & Ready Volunteer Fire Department, a bratwurst with sauerkraut from Nevada City United Methodist, a teriyaki rice bowl from Soroptimist International of Grass Valley and, to finish it off, some caramel corn from the Grass Valley Gold Country Lions Club.
