Fair Food: Fried Butter

Last night we made our annual trip to the Wilson County Fair. If you didn't already know, Ulika is a huge fan of the fair, and Wilson Co's fair is the best in the state. Naturally, part of the fair experience is checking out the fair food. This year, one thing that has been gaining a good amount of publicity is the fried butter. Out of curiosity, we had to try these jewels.

It was a little difficult to find the fried butter, but then we stumbled upon the sign.

The frozen pats of butter were deep fried to perfection with the ever-so-common fair batter. The whole thing receives a little sprinkle of powdered sugar and it's really that simple.

BP compared it to a overly buttered dinner roll, and I agree. It was not all that bad, and the novelty factor is really high.

That's fine, but tell me about the monkeys riding the dogs.

I tried deep fried Pepsi and deep fried Snickers at the Florida State Fair a few years ago. I had a terrible flare up of gout and couldn't walk without severe pain for two weeks. Ouch.

Your post definitely brings back memories....bad memories.
