I am very fond of deep-fried foods like chicken, french fries, corn dogs and those awesome little donuts.

Recently one of my blogging buddies mentioned eating deep-fried Twinkies at a fair and I was intrigued. I had no idea you could deep-fry Twinkies!!! How was it that I'd never heard of this before???

I've also seen "Deep Fried Beer" somewhere.

Andi said...

I think I could really get into the deep-fried meat pies, but I'm not sure about the beer. Beer needs to be served ice cold!

oh dear.

Cakespy said...

Fantastic! People were just asking me about deep fried chocolate chip cookies...and here you have cookie dough! Fantastic!!

Almost had a heart attack just reading that. Amazing! Deep fried snails are good... and deep fried frogs legs too.

I think the apples, bananas, and cheese curds would be the best.

crunchLin said...

oh my goodness. ive always wanted to try deep fried oreos. yumm and fried pickles are amazing! but olives! oh man. divine!everything looks so good! i feel so .... guilty.

Austin said...

Deep fried tofu. That is amazing.

Janelle (Himene) said...

Deep fried tofu is a pretty common food in most countries in Asia...and it tastes far, far better than normal tofu.

PointSpecial said...

I've had fried dilly's... they're awesome with ranch dressing. Also, fried cheese curds are frequently seen on the menu in Wisconsin.

I haven't had, but I've seen fried mac & cheese, and the rest mostly look good too!!

There's not a food item in the world you can't seep fry. Check out Deep Fried Balls of Butter.

Andi said...

I'm not so sure about the deep-fried butter. It sounds kinda...wrong!

grover said...

I'm gonna go ahead and say "yuck!" to all of those...

except deep fried tofu, which is really tasty! And I might give the olives a chance too.

If you think deep-fried cheese curds are unusual, you've obviously never been to Wisconsin -- every fair has at least five tents selling them, and you'll find them on the menu at any suitably greasy restaurant.

As for the others...just looking at the pictures might induce a heart attack. And who deep-fries a Cadbury Creme Egg, of all things?

Anthony said...

That deep fried cadbury creme egg looks friggin awesome!

Anyways - most of this is available at the Texas State Fair. They have a competition every year to see what the most unique fried food is. Last year it was fried latte - lol.

Andi said...

That sounds really tasty (if you'll excuse me, I need to take a break right now and have some supper).

I'm lovin' that cheesecake! lol, I can see how I might get a heart attack, but it would so be worth it.

All Your Stuff Looks Really Terrific! It Sort of
Reminds me of when I used to work for Kutchie Pelaez at His Key West Bar and Grill. We used to make a lot of the same Awesome Foods that you are showing here. Kutchie's makes "The World's Greatest Cheese Burgers" and "The World Famous Key Lime Pie". A Vast A-Ray of
Special Unique Island Drinks. What a Blast it was Working at Kutchie's That Summer While I was Going to UNCA...Memories that I will never forget.

Deep fried tofu is on this list? Really? I've been eating deep fried tofu since I was a kid. It's not THAT hard to find as long as you walk into an asian restaurant.

Then again, most American asian restaurants would replace this with stuff like "chicken balls"...ugh...what disgrace to Chinese food is this???
