  1. ChurrosFALSE. Churro is Spanish for weasel. Churros, the deep-fried doughy snack, are actually named after the Churro sheep, whose curved horns they resemble. They are originally from Spain, where they are often eaten for breakfast, like doughnuts in the U.S. A typical churro has about 170 calories and 8 grams of fat.

  2. TRUE. The most popular color of cotton candy is pink. Blue and purple are close runners-up. Cotton candy was introduced at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair as "fairy floss." A typical serving of cotton candy has 100 calories and no fat.

  3. FALSE. If you order a pogo in Canada, you'll get a taco. Actually, you'll get a corndog. They are also known as Dagwood dogs, Pluto pups, and Dippy dogs in Australia, and Golden Paradises in the eastern U.S. Reputedly, the first corn dog on a stick was called a "cozy dog." They are also served as the main entrée at Hot Dog on a Stick, the only 100-percent employee-owned fast food chain in America. A corn dog has about 460 calories and 19 grams of fat.

  4. Snow ConeFALSE. A snow cone is the same as Italian ice. Italian ice is similar to a snow cone, but the water is flavored before it becomes ice, where the American snow cone is plain crushed ice doused with syrup. The first snow cones were sold at the Texas State Fair in 1919. A typical snow cone has about 240 calories and no fat.

  5. FALSE. Nacho is a variation on the word macho, or manly. Actually "Nacho" was the nickname of the snack's inventor, Ignacio Anaya. He invented them in 1943. The original nachos were tortilla chips covered in melted cheese and jalapeño peppers. Many other toppings have been added throughout the years. A typical portion of nachos with just cheese and jalapeños has 345 calories and 19 grams of fat.
