OSKALOOSA, Iowa, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- White House and Obama campaign aides chowed down at the Iowa State Fair and campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki quipped Tuesday everyone survived.

"A combination of David Axelrod, David Plouffe, myself, Jon Favreau, Alyssa Mastromonaco and Eugene Kang probably ate half a dozen turkey legs, a dozen fried Oreos, four fried Snickers, fried Twinkies, fried ho-hos -- we really did it up at the fair," Psaki told the daily press briefing as President Obama's bus tour made its way toward Oskaloosa, Iowa. "We're all still functioning today."

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the whole mess was washed down by "a few beers, too."

The group favorite?

"The fried Oreos," Psaki said.
