It's topped with a mountain of whipped cream, and then hot fudge is drizzled all over it. But wait, there's more... Then, to top it off, they add mini chocolate chips! The Taylor's Doughboy booth is located on the southside of the grounds, south of the Parke Building. Just look for the big inflatable doughboy. #berryfest17 #deathbychocolate #funnelcake A post shared by Florida Strawberry Festival (@flstrawberryfestival) on Mar 1, 2017 at 7:17pm PST\nGuava turnovers:\n@flstrawberryfestivalembedded via\nAnd so much more!\nSo what are you waiting for?
