Deep fried Coke is another odd one that I've heard of but never tried.

Butter. Unless they come up with a way to deep fry Crisco. Then that'll be the most ridiculous.

This thread seems to be a good place to note that people living outside of the Southeast US sometimes think Southerners eat fried green tomatoes all the time (hence even a movie name).

At least in my area, that item only shows up sporadically on menus, and it's mostly in restaurants that try to replicate a Southern diner in a way that appeals to hipsters rather than the real deal. Fried okra, squash, and hush puppies (fried corn meal) is more common in my neck of the woods.

I didn't look up any of them besides this one but the name made me curious

Quote:
“Orange You Glad We Fried It?!”: “Layers of moist chiffon orange cake, dairy-fresh whipped cream, and citrusy orange preserves are lightly blended forming a refreshing custard-like filling. The mixture is spooned into flaky puff pastry dough, folded turnover style and sealed with a pastry crimper.” Then it’s dusted with powdered sugar, served with two dipping sauces and garnished with a double citrus twist slice.

I'll confess that I'd try a couple of bites of that - although I'm sure that a couple of bites would be the limit of what I'd want.

I doubt I'd want to try most of the others.

As for the most ridiculous, here's a whole list for your reading pleasure - definitely not for your eating pleasure, though! lol!

I had the fried butter at the State Fair of Texas several years ago.

It was just a greasy roll with a bit of butter in the middle, not worth the calories, but not particularly gross.

I didn't think it was a real thing. LOL. Well, you survived it!

Texas is a home of many of them:

Corn Dog Ale — In keeping with the funnel cake ale that was popular a few years ago, this beer is inspired by the State Fair of Texas’ most famous dish: the Fletcher’s Corny Dog.

Fried Kool-Aid Pickles — Also a State Fair staple, dill pickles that have been soaked in Kool-Aid get the deep-fryer treatment.

Cotton Candy Taco — No details yet on what this taco will hold, but expect a shell made of freshly-pulled cotton candy.

Hoppin’ John Cake with Jackpot Sauce — No word yet on what “jackpot sauce” is, but expect a fried corn cake studded with black eyed peas.

Deep Fried M&Ms — Will each tiny M&M be deep-fried individually? Who knows!

Orange You Glad We Fried It? — Literally no idea.

Sweet Crispy Rice — A sugary, greasy riff on classic arroz con leche.

Fried butter on a stick - entire stick of butter dipped in a cinnamon batter, fried and topped with glaze.

Fried beer - deep-fried ravioli made from a salty, pretzel-like dough filled with beer.

Fried Kool aid balls - with a batter made from flour, water and Kool-Aid.

Fried ice cream cheese burger - slab of ice cream coated in cinnamon and cornflakes dipped in a deep fryer for 10 to 15 sec., nestled under the toasted bun and perched atop the pickle, lettuce, tomato, bacon and cheese toppings.

Fried salsa - dipped in masa and covered in crunchy tortilla chips before it's dropped into the deep fryer.

Fried bubblegum - bubblegum-flavored marshmallows dipped in batter, fried and decorated with icing and powdered sugar.

Fried jelly beans - dipped in batter before being deep-fried.

More of the bizarre fried food here:

And the winner is - Maggot melt sandwich?
Take two hamburger buns, a few slices of cheese, a healthy dose of fly larvae, toss it all on the grill and chow down.

... or maybe not. What do YOU think of that food?
Do you know anything else not mentioned here?
Deep Fried M & M's. Might try that one!
