Ummmmm, Who Cares It's Not Healthy?
From Fox News:
When it comes to America’s top state fair foods, there’s no doubt that deep-fried is in.
From deep-fried butter to deep-friend nachos, battered or breaded, anything with a satisfying crunch has been a hit with crowds across the country for the past few years.
This year, a deep-fried cherry Jell-O dish took home the top prize on Sunday at the State Fair of Texas’ annual Big Tex Choice Awards—a contest held ahead of the fair’s opening later this fall.
This dish consists of a ball of cherry Jell-O that’s been dipped in batter and then flash fried. The whole dessert is topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream and a cherry.
"I never thought a 10-cent bag of Jell-O would put me in the spotlight," said the dish’s creator Ruth Hauntz. At 82-years-old she’s the second oldest concessionaire at the State Fair, according to Dallas Live. http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2016/08/30/deep-fried-jello-o-wins-best-food-at-texas-state-fair-big-tex-choice-awards/
But nothing beats Wisconsin State Fair cream puffs.
