Saw this article about the Fried Twinkie craze sweeping state fairs nationwide this summer - 26,000 sold in 18 days in Sacramento - and I am fascinated...has anyone had any of these ? and what other unusual deep fried culinary treats did others come across this summer ?
I saw them being prepared on the Best Damn Sports Show Period not too long ago. Dennis Rodman had one. They sound kind of tasty. I'm sure the sound of your arteries clogging up after scarfing down two or three would be a little disturbing though.
Comic Book Guy: "Last night's 'Itchy & Scratchy' was, without a doubt, the worst episode ever. Rest assured that I was on the Internet within minutes, registering my disgust throughout the world."
Oddly enough, I do believe the Brits have us North Americans snookered when it comes to deep frying things. Maybe one of the British Wieners can confirm this, but apparently not only are deep fried Mars bars hugely popular over there, but many places will basically batter and fry anything you bring to them.

how come you're so afraid of things that dont make any sense to you? do you water your raisins daily? do you have any raisins? is there anything that does make sense to you? are you afraid of twelve button suits? how come you're so afraid to stop talking?

While I'm not a British Wiener I can confirm this...
When I was in Scotland about three years ago all the local children went berzerk for Mars Bars, dipped in a thick, buttery batter, and then quickly deep fried to a perfection. To be honest, it was really, really good...
Deep fried battered candy bars were aplenty at our state overglorified flea market (sorry..."fair") this year. Have been for a couple years. One vendor did it the year before...next year EVERYBODY did it.
The trick is to use a good pancake mix, so I'm told.
