If we’ve learned one thing about food in the past few years, it’s that if it exists, someone will find a way to deep-fry 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?

Good lord! I've never even heard of any of them and can't say I'm sorry about it.

Same here. Imagine your stomach feeling like that all the time with all that fried crap inside of it.

I don't eat much fried food except for the occasional fried fish, particularly at a good fish-and-chips shop.

I never like any of the novelty deep-fried foods at the fair.

I’ll stick to the classics, potatoes, chicken, onion, potatoes, and potatoes.

The fried salsa and fried jelly beans sound not horrible enough to try, but I would surely regret it immediately after eating it.

Yuck. To all of it.


I remember when the first fried Oreos appeared near me (at the boardwalk). Now Oreos were a guilty pleasure, so i thought, why not. They were terrible (IMO). I know they are very popular, but the texture, the whole thing was just so weird to me... took one bite and that was more then enough. I think the only fried foods i'll eat are french fries or chicken... that's about it.

Only deep fried butter I've tried has been dough balls with melted butter in the middle. Kind of like really light biscuits.
