FIRST!!

That looks disgusting.

Is that really new? I thought that's what Elvis choked on.

You took the words right out of my mouth. Ewww.

There's no such thing as "obese enough" Dave.

I think it looks great, Siouxie.

whats - that's not all they took out of your mouth. Blech.

All right, I'll bite: How do you deep-fry Coca-Cola™ brand beverages?

(I'm assuming we're not talking about the other kind...)

looks kinda like something that would come out of either end of a dog, not sure which...

DPC - by golly, that DOES look like Elvis vomit. Where's my handy-dandy DNA kit?

Jeff, it looks like fried brain...with crap oozing out of it.

where's my cosmo????

Chris, no jelly, Elvis liked peanut butter & bananas, with or without bacon.

maybe the confusion comes from Elvis being jelly-filled.
*slides a fur-free Cosmo down to Siouxie*

My little sis is going to the NC State fair this weekend - 'fraid I couldn't get her to try this out for us, though - she's a nutritionist, and disgustingly healthy!

deep fried coke is really a coke flavored dough that is then fried

The only thing worse looking than this is someone actually eating it.

Fried Coke is a new American snack created in 2006. It consists of balls of batter mixed with Coca-Cola syrup, which are fried and then topped with more Coca-Cola syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, and a cherry. It was introduced by inventor Abel Gonzales, Jr., at the 2006 State Fair of Texas, where it won the title of "Most Creative" in the second annual judged competition among food vendors. It proved very popular in Texas, selling 16,000 cups in the first two weeks, and is now being adopted as a snack by fairs in North Carolina as well as Arizona. It is also very popular in California.

Fried Coke is estimated to have 830 calories.

Thanks, Mr. Dicktionary, but southerncal beat ya by 3 minutes and about 85 words.

"Most Creative," indeed. That's the award category version of saying, "That's so...interesting!" when trying to avoid telling someone how horrible something is. I'll just stick to my fried pickles, thanks.

"...a festival in the Calabrian region of Southern Italy..."

Dormouse casserole, the healthy alternative.

BECAUSE WE, AS A NATION, ARE NOT OBESE ENOUGH

Hey, I resemble that remark!

I'm reading the short version of 'deep fried coke'. Concise and to the point, southerncal. :) I'm soCal too and that's how we like things.

Now I'm hungry for a Twinkie.

Anyone up for a road trip to N.C.?

OMG! This was MY IDEA! I talked about it to other blog fans one time. Mine would have a drizzle of honey on them, and powdered sugar. And on a stick, of course. The idea was to make it good, but also nearly deadly.

El, they have roads in N.C.?

Good point, Annie, I don't know. Maybe we need to fly in....;)
But then there's the airport question....

*wonders if they deliver*

Hmmmm...good point. Instead, let's just sit here and make fun of them.

Breeding next year's crop of racing pigs I guess!

Some of those are pretty cute. :)

You know Dave, I was just about to eat a regular peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But now, maybe I'll pass. Urg.

I agree Eleanor! It sounds so redneck, but those pig races are hilarious.

I was thinking about going to the fair, but I think that might have made me lose my appetite for food AND fair.

Ever have fried macaroni and cheese? YUM!

I always believed Elvis ate Fluffer-nutters grilled. Peanut Butter and bananas don't exactly light my fire...
