    The Latest In Deep Fried Fair Food

    Apparently, the new thing at the California State Fair (in Sacramento) this year is deep fried Coke. Yep. That's right. Somehow, they're putting coke in a batter and throwing it into a deep frier.

    Now, I like deep fried twinkies, and have even had a deep fried Peppermint Patty, but the concept of deep fried coca cola just seems wrong on a number of levels. It's an unholy union of too many things we're not supposed to have much of separately!

    If anyone goes and gets one, please let us know!

    That sounds extremely gross, I would not try that.

    I had deep fried Dr. Pepper at a fair/rodeo in Texas. That was last year.

    ???

    How do they do that? Is it like a baked Alaska, where they freeze the cola (like a popsicle) , then batter and deep-fry it?

    ETA: Wrong. It's even worse than I'd imagined.

    That is nasty. I, personally, enjoy deep fried adzuki bean ice cream. But that Coke batter just sounds disgusting. Why not just stick whipped cream, cinammon and a cherry in a glass of coke and save yourself the unnecessary fat?

    Big fan of Coke here, but that is sheer desecration right there.

    Yeah, someone I met had it and said it was like a brownie, but not really chocolate-y....obviously. He said it wasn't good or bad...just kinda there.

    Personally, I'm a HUGE fan of the fried avocado!

    My daughter says "That's disgusting and odd."

    My first thought was "I wonder if they have deep fried Diet coke too?"

    I had that and I'm one of those people who will try anything once. So I tried it and there was something yucky about hot fried mush... And I didn't even try it. I took one bite and was in front of the trash can trying to get the flavor out of my mouth.

    I mentioned that to my dad and he was like "how is that possible? Do they really need to?"

    Thats what I thought too...but then I guess that would defeat the purpose. I don't think I will be trying this anytime soon.

    I did try it...posted a trip report about all the disgusting fair food I ate this year and deep fried Coke was one of them.
    Yeah. I could live the rest of my life without having one again.
