I am going to die this year at the stampede
 
2013-05-02 09:01:47 PM  
Okay. Sounds awesome.
Bonus: can they deep-fry beer in beer batter yet?

They're stealing from the Texas State Fair!!!

7. Deep Fried Doritos
A deep fried snack made of Doritos, beer and bacon, could it get any better? Doritos are dipped in a beer batter, sprinkled with bacon bits and deep fried.


Actually, I think this sounds pretty good.
 
2013-05-02 09:09:42 PM  
Why does this sound like the joke recipes I post when people ask for real recipes? I had one where you soak chicken in Dr Pepper over night, then roll it in peanut butter and Cool Ranch Dorito crumbs and deep fry it.

I love the kind of cado which flies.
 
2013-05-02 09:12:34 PM  
Can I get drunk from eating the fudge? Either way it looks pretty good.

Rolled chicken tacos that are deep friend and with sour cream, Lettuce and Salsa on top


I think you might need to talk to someone about your problem.

You could turn the beer into an aspic with the addition of unflavored gelatin, wrap it in gyoza wrappers, batter it, fry it. Ta-da! Now let's figure out how much to drink first so when know when it will seem perfectly reasonable to complain our fried beer is warm.
 
2013-05-02 09:18:12 PM  
I could do without the fried things, but the B-52 fudge sounds magical.

I think there's been a typing malfunction and they actually mean: '....and serve it on a stick...of lard and then battered in bacon infused drippings'

#4: Shrimp Chips: Shrimp and tapioca flour is mixed, dried and fried.

Ah, Krupuk. I can't remember the last time I've seen that anywhere. Really bad for you, and really addicting.

/Mom used to make it
 
2013-05-02 10:26:04 PM  
Most of those sound good, actually.  Not something you'd want to eat on a daily basis but for fair fare?  Why not?  Life's too short to live on celery and tofu.  If I didn't have a little self control, I couldn't have lived in Georgia all these years without my ass becoming as big as Stone Mountain. Shirley's Country Kitchen is a place around here I love, for instance.  The best fried chicken ever, homemade banana pudding, fried catfish, big, buttery biscuits...oh man, I could hurt myself if I ate there more than 2 or 3 times a year. Having that kind of decadent food on a rare occasion is awesome, in my book.
 
2013-05-02 10:27:42 PM  
1. Double Bacon Corndog

Not exactly anything new per say, just a bit different. Skip the syrup and bacon bits at the end and it doesn't sound all that bad.

2. Sweet Corn Corndog

Excuse me, but that sounds freakishly awesome.

3. Banana Bacon Ear

Meh.

4. Deep Fried Pickled Beans

Meh.

5. Deep Fried Butter

I've been curious about them, but I doubt I'd eat much of it.

6. Deep Fried Pie

This isn't new you idiots, they've done them for years. Pocket Pies were something miners took to work with them to eat for lunch while underground.

7. Deep Fried Doritos

Pass

8. Deep Fried Bubble Gum

Pass

9. Deep Fried Avocado

Just saw a Street Eats episode with something like this done in it that made me curious. Love avacado.

10. Deep Fried Philly Cheesesteak Rollup

Ugh, I'll take my Philly unfriend thanks...

11. Chip Dog

Again, not really new, just a combo of two recipies.

12. Eggroll On a Stick

Why...?

13. Shrimp Chips

This heavily depends on the size of the shrimp. If we're talking little tiny shrimp they're good, if you're talking anything larger than a salad shrimp you're insane.

14. Naaco TNT

Actually sounds fairly interesting

15. Cochinita Pibil

Tasty sounding

16. Flautas de Pollo

DEFINITELY not new

17. Chocolate Dipped Jalapeno

Still on the fence about this, it sounds interesting, but at the same time disturbing...

18. Chocolate Covered Bacon

Again, not new in the slightest, but I will say it's disturbingly good

19. Frozen Yogurt

/facepalm

20. B-52 Fudge

While I'm not a big drinker, that sounds pretty damn good...

21. Chocolate Cinnamon Bear Fudge

Never been a fan of heavy cinnamon-flavored things (read: cinnamon drops and their like), but I like fudge...

22. Dessert Fries

Eh, no.

23. Chocolate Bacon Fudge

You people are evil. Evil and shouldn't be talked to and justtakemymoneynowdammit

24. Chocolate Bacon Apple

This just sounds like someone wanted to do something different at the last second and figured "ZOMG, ROL APPL IN BAKON!!!" Doesn't really interest me even as a novelty.

25. Philly Cheesesteak

Ohhhhyeah.

26. Idaho Nachos

Not new again, but an interesting riff on it.

27. Godzilla Mac and Cheese

I'm kind of disappointed with myself that this sounds a lot better than I initially thought upon reading TFA

28. Idaho Taco

Someone needs a smack to the back of the head. Good yes, but about as 'new' as the baked potato itself

29. Pickle Shooters

I'd imagine the first aid tents will be full before long if many actually try this. Straight up vinegar with seasonings? *shudders*

30. Double smoked bacon wrapped cheese perogie skewer

Mmmm, love perogies, but wrapping them in bacon just doesn't sound very good to me really...

31. Western Cake Pops

NO. Really wish this whole cake pop thing would just die already.
 
2013-05-02 10:27:53 PM  
think my cholesterol went up just reading that list
 
2013-05-02 10:30:58 PM  
26. Idaho NachosIdaho's version of nachos starts with waffle cut fries that are then topped up with all the fix'ins.Round these parts we just call those tachos. And we make them with tater tots. Same idea though.

freetomato: Life's too short to live on celery and tofu


You've obviously never had fried tofu with fried broccoli. With a good Asian-style hot sauce it's transcenfarkingdental.
 
2013-05-02 10:32:33 PM  

WeenerGord: 9. Deep Fried Avocado

Pieces of avocado are coated in light tempura batter and deep fried


Sounds pretty good.


If it's flash-fried similar to fried ice cream, maybe.  Avocado loses a lot of flavor when cooked.

I'd imagine the first aid tents will be full before long if many actually try this. Straight up vinegar with seasonings? *shudders*


They're typically served in Portland as a chaser to a nasty liquor shot.  Again, not new.
 
2013-05-02 10:36:18 PM  
Can't wait, got new python boots on sale from Lammle's in the off season!
 
2013-05-02 10:36:25 PM  
Ok for the most part these are strangely shaped normal foods, deep fried. However fried butter is nasty just to think about and they should feel bad for doing that.

And I'm sure bubble gum must have 100 radioactive chemicals you're not supposed to swallow, plus deep frying it.
