Deep Fried Kool-Aid and Other Battered Delights
The Greeley Stampede is only 3 days away! That means great concerts of course, but what else? Fried everything! Oreos, Coke, candy bars, you name it you can probably find it on a stick and fried over the next couple of weeks in Greeley. But have you heard of the latest fried item?
If there’s one knock against Kool-Aid, it’s that it’s not fattening enough. Sure those sugars are going to turn into fat at some point, but what if you need a quicker fix? Who has time to sit around all day waiting for their metabolism to convert that excess glycogen to fatty acids? Enter deep-fried Kool-Aid, the newest oil-injected creation from the reigning king of fair food, “Chicken” Charlie Boghosian that’s a major web obsession right now.
If these cherry-flavored doughnut holes don’t kill you, we don’t know what will. Actually, we can venture a few guesses. How about…
Deep Fried Twinkies
The Twinkie’s golden color makes it look like it might be fried to begin with. It’s not, but once that thought has entered your mind, how could you possibly resist?
Deep Fried Pizza
Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at suppertime. When pizza’s fried and battered, you can eat pizza one last time.
Deep Fried Balls of Butter
You may know Butterball as a brand of turkey, but on the fair circuit, it just a battered ball of butter fried to perfection in a vat of hot oil. Five bucks is a pretty good deal for a heart attack.
Deep Fried Oreos
If you hold enough Oreos over a deep fryer, you’re bound to drop one in eventually. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
What items would you like to see fried and eaten? I think I could go for a nice fried up peanut butter and jelly sandwich or maybe a fried popcorn! Heck, I'm sure it wont be long before we have fried cocktails, get fat and drunk at the same time! Fry up insects, we will eat 'em, who cares about cholesterol anyways?
