The last thing Americans need is to learn how to fry something else. The State Fair of Texas recently held a foodie contest and awarded “Most Creative” to a tempting delicacy known as Fried Bubblegum.
Add that to the growing list of increasingly common artery-clogging fair foods like funnel cakes, fried Oreos, fried Twinkies, fried macaroni & cheese, fried pickles and fried Snickers bars. In honor of state fair season, the dumbest fried crap I could find (some of which is borderline shocking), below:
Fried Kool-Aid Balls (San Diego, CA)
Fried Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwich (Dallas, TX)*
Fried Butter On-A-Stick (Des Moines, IA)
Deep-Fried Coca-Cola (Dallas, TX)*
Fried Frog Legs (Sacramento, CA)
Deep-Fried Cheeseburger (Akron, OH)*
Fried Pop-Tarts (Timonium, MD)
Deep-Fried Pizza (Brooklyn, NY)
Fried Cheese Curds (West Allis, WI)
Deep-Fried Turkey Testicles (Evansville, IN)
Chicken-Fried Bacon (Snook, TX)

Zesty Fried Guacamole Bites (Dallas, TX)*
*These items sound awesome, and I would happily stuff them into my face. I’m moving to Dallas.
