Tried the Deep Fried Cookie Dough (left) last night at the Texas State Fair. Skip it. As much as I heart fried food, the Deep Fried Oreo and Deep Fried Snickers are better. And better for you. I'm sure the caloric intake of the Deep Fried Cookie Dough is only slightly better than a 24-piece McNugget meal with super size fries and a 44-oz. Diet Coke (don't want those extra calories).
It's a painfully heavy and chewy experience, yet I managed to eat just about all three.
But having kept a promise to only indulge in one deep fried cuisine I made a rather large mistake of passing on the Deep Fried Beer (below).
The two dudes who ordered it said it definitely tastes like beer, and that it was good. It's a small-shaped pastry with beer inside. And because that's not enough calories, they drop melted cheese over the top.
As David Letterman once said of Deep Fried Butter, "This is why people hate us."
