Oprah.com's got a heart attack-inducing round-up of the fried food finalists in the Big Tex Choice Awards at this year's State Fair of Texas.
Corny dogs and funnel cakes are expected, of course, but Fried Butter and Fried Coke? Unprecedented! Then again is there anything that can't be fried?
Here are some of the fried foods served at the 2009 State Fair of Texas:
- Corny dog
- Fried butter
- Fried peanut butter, jelly, and banana
- Deep-fried peaches and cream
- Fried grilled cheese
- Chicken-fried bacon
- Fried Coke (actually Coca-Cola-flavored batter that is deep-fried, covered in pure Coca-Cola fountain syrup, and topped with whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and a cherry)
- Fried guacamole
Which of these fried foods sound the best? The worst? (I'm utterly intrigued yet disgusted by the fried guacamole.)
