It seems like they took your standard fair food fare and added bacon.  Deep fried butter on the other hand, sounds tasty but would not eat.

I have pretty much every kitchen appliance or gadget (within reason) ever created... except a deep fryer.

That probably means something, but I'm not sure what. The deep fried avocado in tempura batter sounds enticing, though. I might put together some and pan fry them this weekend. It's hard to go wrong where avocados are involved.

Avocado tempura is quite tasty.  Everything else on there sounds god-awful.

What, no fried cola? I'd love to try that.

Guess I'll settle for deep fried bubblegum

Iczer: 2. Sweet Corn Corndog - Excuse me, but that sounds freakishly awesome.

Oh sweet mama, it is.  This is how they made them in Savannah during my misspent youth.

4. Deep Fried Pickled Beans - Meh.

Deep fried pickles are awesome.  No matter what the pickle is.  Try it sometime.

5. Deep Fried Butter - I've been curious about them, but I doubt I'd eat much of it.

The very thought of swallowing solid fat like that makes my stomach churn.

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.

These are not new to Japanese people.  The shrimp are pureed into the batter.  Look for bags of them in an Asian grocery. I think the brand is Calbee, and they're french-fry-shaped, and They. Are. Great.

23. Chocolate Bacon Fudge - You people are evil. Evil and shouldn't be talked to and justtakemymoneynowdammit

Agreed.  Shutup and take my money.

I'll be doing the Chip Dog and the Chocolate Jalapeno this Stampede.

...and by doing them I mean shoving them up my ass. Hell yeah!

Iczer: 17. Chocolate Dipped Jalapeno

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

ultraholland: 12. Eggroll On a Stick

A Chinese favourite gets the Stampede treatment when we take a classic eggroll and serve it on a stick

Now that's just lazy.

Years ago, there was a restaurant chain here in the Mid-Southern states called, Cooker.  They made deep fried corn-on-the-cob that was to die for... sadly, they went out of business.  But dayum, was it ever good!!

Honestly, everything they described as deep fried made my stomach flippy-flop. Never liked deep fried foods, they always bother my stomach, and seeing as I have chronic gastritis my stomach overrules deep fried death.

I'm not into greasy foods and weird azz combinations (my one weird combo: putting white gravy over cantaloupes) {{Honestly it tastes much better than you would imagine, Dad had me eating it all my life}}

Okay, call me out for being strange for eating that, I'll cop to it.
