Tampa, Florida -- It's the second night of the Florida State Fair. And as we've seen the past two days, whatever you're craving you can find it from hot waffle ice cream sandwiches to pizza cones to the staples like popcorn and candy apples.     

We calculated with the help of the My Fitness Pal app that cotton candy has no fat but 240 calories. A candy apple has 180 calories 2.5 grams of fat. The box of popcorn likely has 276 calories and at least 8 grams of fat.

Here are some of the other results when you search fair food on the My Fitness Pal app:
