TOP FIVE CRAZIEST FAIR FOODS OF ALL TIME!

Today's list is so unhealthy even Paula Deen might have a heart attack because we're counting down the Top Five Craziest Fair Foods of All Time!

#5) Fried Beer

From the UK Telegraph

The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic.

When diners take a bite the hot beer mixes with the dough in what is claimed to be a delicious taste sensation.

Inventor Mark Zable said it had taken him three years to come up with the cooking method and a patent for the process is pending.

#4) Deep Fried White Castle Burgers

From Foodandwine.com

 The Orange County Fair is so dedicated to frying that a vendor called Heart Attack Café chose Deep Fried Butter Stand as its new name after being pressured with legal action by Arizona's Heart Attack Grill. Even more stupendous: Chicken Charlie's fried White Castle cheeseburgers (bun and all) at the 2011 fair.

 #3) Fried Butter

From Wikipedia: 

Deep-fried butter is a snack food comprising butter that is coated with a batter or breading and then deep-fried. The dish has been served at several fairs in the United States, among them, the State Fair of Texas in Dallas, Texas, and the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa.

#2) Fried Bubblegum

From Seriouseats.com:

Hundreds of thousands of people will be converging at the Texas State Fairthis month. Many will seek out the winner of the "Most Creative" title of the Big Tex Choice Awards: Fried Bubblegum. Our warning: don't be that guy. You will regret it.

We attempted the Fried Bubblegum shortly after arriving at the fair on opening day. This was a mistake. Eating it early in the day did nothing to change our minds about it.

I was holding out great hope that it wouldn't be as bad as it sounded. My photographer is not fond of bubblegum flavoring so we had already decided that I'd take one for the team on this.

Here's the plate of three puffy pink fried whatnots on a stick. Though extraordinarily fragrant of the bubblegum scent, the contents, for the most part, were not actual gum. The body included three large bubblegum flavored marshmallows dipped in a bubblegum flavored batter, deep-fried then drizzled with a rarely-seen-in-nature blue tinted bubblegum flavored frosting. A small handful of bubblegum bits were scattered on the plate, too.

#1) Krispy Kreme Burger

From CBS News.com

 It's the infamous Luther (Vandross) burger, also known as the Krispy Kreme burger. That's a hamburger patty, often with bacon and a fried egg, sandwiched between two doughnuts.

The Machine Shed, the Midwest chain who manned the Krispy Kreme doughnut booth at 2010's Wisconsin State Fair, upped the ante even more with an optional chocolate-covered bacon topping. There's no official word on how bad for you these really are, but with two original glazed donuts at 190 calories each, you're looking at quite a meal from just the "bun" alone.
