Deep-Fried Everything

If you can fry it, you can eat it. That seems to be the unofficial motto of state fair food vendors and it's one that they are happy to live by. Here's just a sampling of items that have been rolled in batter and deep fried at recent state fairs: bacon, Oreos, candy bars, Coca Cola, ravioli, caviar, Twinkies, Kool-Aid, beer, Pop Tarts, Frito pie, and a club salad. The 2011 Wisconsin State Fair offered the ultimate fried concoction: clumps of deep fried butter. Our arteries are clogging just thinking about it.
