The Real Thing?

I was at yet another outdoor festival this past weekend, and I was introduced to a culinary horror so outrageous it boggles the mind: Deep Fried Coke. Please don't poke your own eyes out with a dry toothpick; that's REALLY a picture of Coca Cola, Atlanta Holy Water, in convenient fried form.

Apparently it's funnel cake batter mixed with Coke syrup and fried to an
artery-clogging golden brown. It was invented by a guy named Abel Gonzales, Jr, the Chef Boyardee of carny cuisine, at last summer's Texas State Fair.

So now it's official...Everything on Earth can be deep fried and sold to folks of questionable taste at carnivals, fairs, and festivals.

"Honey, theys out th' fried rat twat."

"Well git me sum'a them fried aardvark nutsacks."

I eagerly anticipate this summer's State Fair season to see what new travesties Abel Gonzales, Jr and his team of culinary assassins have in store for us.

man you're making me long for Fair Days now. Nothing like a Fletcher's corn dog and a five dollar fried coke. Now that's good eating!

Eek!

I love Coke enough to make sweet, sweet love to it but there is no way in hell I'd put that deep-fried bastardization of it anywhere near my mouth.

That is truly disgusting.

We product the best things here in Texas don't we?

I'll admit it, I tried it... you pretty much have to try all of the new stuff at the fair each year. I think the fried Oreos was the worst, but you see people walking around with them all the time.

You are just a fair goin' fool aren't you?

I think that sounds yummy...how did it taste? I tried deep fried twinkies at the beach last year, and it was a week's worth of fat, and well worth it.

Get pics of the freaks at these festivals...that is the best!

Next week, follow Anthony Bourdain as he travels to the artery clogging, heart disease inducing Kentucky State Fair! Watch in horror as he consumes more calories in one sitting than children in Ethiopia get in a whole year! Be amazed as he bravely battles hordes of hillybillys, red necks, and the most dreaded of all...CARNIES!!!

The best deep fried thing I ever saw someone voluntarily consume was a plate of deep-fried bull testicles in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

i'm so starting to crush on you. :)

Deep Fried Coke. That is amasing. Ive had a deep fried Cadburys cream egg (if you know what they are..) But if you want a real 'We'll deep fry anything and eat it' comp' you need to go to Scotland- they LOVE it.

Mulligan's, a restaurant in Decatur, Georgia has a dish called the "Hamdog" that was basically a burger wrapped around a hotdog, deepfried, and served with a fried egg and french fries. They also have the "Luther Burger," which is a bacon cheeseburger with a Krispy Kreme donut for a bun.

And for dessert there's a deep-fried Twinky.

They're doing their best to make sure the South keeps it nickname among medical professionals as "the stroke belt."

That's just crazy, but has vast military potential as a biological weapon.

So whats it taste like, hopefully not testicles.
