Lol... why is it no surprise that deep-fried beer was invented in Texas?

The Irish would be proud... or disgraced...

I was at a county fair the other day, which means deep-fried products galore. I'm thinking about going back later this week just to try more of them because I'm that dedicated.

The assortment of heart-stopping delicacies included, but was not limited to:

Bacon-Wrapped Hotdogs

Oh... my... aching... heart...

Ernie, you have inspired me to go to county fairs once again! Despite my love for fitness and health, I am very proud to say that I would willingly try any of the items you've posted above!

@ Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog
Those happen to be one of my favorite foods! I've put so many various toppings on them ever since I learned how to make them, such as chili, garlic, grilled onions, peppers, salsa, barbecue sauce, teriyaki sauce, and of course, extra bacon, in addition to or without "standard" hot dog toppings (ketchup, mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, sauerkraut).

@ Deep-fried Twinkie
I've tried those before and they're not too bad, especially if you drizzle some kind of syrup on them! Even by themselves they're pretty tasty, though!

@ Deep-fried Oreo
Another one I've tried, and I thought this one to be better than the Twinkie because of the rich, chocolatey flavor that you can't get from a normal Oreo and certainly not from a Twinkie!

@ Deep-fried PB&J
Now that looks delicious! Really, that's about all I can say about it just from looking at it! =P

@ Deep-fried Snickers
That just looks like a corndog with powdered sugar on it... hard to determine what it would be like on the inside! Looks pretty good, though! I'll bet the caramel has a different consistency that enhances the quality of the product!

@ Deep-fried Reese's
Again, all I can say is, it looks delicious! I imagine it being similar to the deep-fried Oreo, but with a strong peanut butter flavor in addition to the rich chocolate!

@ Deep-fried Moon Pie
I've never cared much for Moon Pies... they're usually pretty bland and fairly dry. Deep-frying it is probably the only thing you can do to it to make the flavor and the consistency at all interesting!

@ Deep-fried burrito
Sounds interesting, but do the contents change, or is it just the outer layer that is affected by the deep-frying?

@ Deep-fried butter
More like a heart attack on a stick! Haha! You must have to REALLY like butter in order to enjoy one of those artery-pluggers!

@ Deep-fried cheesecake
I can't see there being a gray area for this dessert... I imagine it being either really good or terrifyingly bad! But there's no way it can just be okay... =)

@ Deep-fried watermelon
That looks delicious, but for some reason it also doesn't seem possible! Maybe I'm the only one who considers deep-frying fruit to be a ridiculous procedure, but for some reason I can't place it makes absolutely no sense to me!

And so concludes my comments on deep-fried products of all kinds.

Why do Americans deep-fry sweet things? Seriously. I don't get it. How does it make the quality of the dessert any better than it already is?

If I took a bite of that deep-fried butter, I don't know if I'd throw it back up or have a heart attack first.

All I can say is, don't knock it 'til you try it! You may find that you love deep-fried desserts... which may not necessarily be a good thing for your health... =P

I'm a bit disappointed in myself that I didn't make it to the fair again this week, but there's always next year, and next year is always filled with new deep-fried goodies.

Anyway, here are some fugu mints to keep your breath....warm.

What is fugu?

Fugu mints don't have the same effect if they don't come with the risk of death that makes fugu interesting. Then again, they could be good if you you want to know what fugu tastes like but you don't want to risk your life actually tasting it. I still haven't decided whether this product is stupid or brilliant.

There's still the risk of choking on a mint.

It probably doesn't taste anything like fugu, but more like a chalky pill-like orb with a slight hint of fishiness. Which is probably better than what it would taste like if it had a strong *arti-fish-al* flavor.

God I'm terrible.
