Deep Fried Coke

Fried Coke

Fried Coke is all the rage at state fairs this year. Yeah, you heard that right: deep-fried nuggets of Coke-drenched batter, topped with whipped cream and more Coke syrup.

Why not just implant columns of trans fats directly into the arteries?


AP:

Fried Coke has become the latest artery-clogging hit at U.S. state fairs, local media reports.

The gooey Coke-battered nuggets topped with cola syrup won the “most creative” title at the Texas state fair in Dallas last month. Since then, the deep-fried phenomenon has spread to North Carolina and Arizona.

“We’ve been getting calls from everywhere since we introduced it,” Elizabeth Martin, a spokeswoman for the North Carolina fair, told the Dallas Morning News. “Everyone wants to know where they can get it.”

I live in AZ and I’ve never heard of such a thing. Apparently this isn’t as widespread or as big of a thing as you’d like to believe.
