Oh sweet merciful heavens. If this isn’t the all-time #1 Food that Can Kill You then I just don’t know what it could possibly be. In fact I may have to retire this particular blog feature because I just don’t see how it could get any better (or worse, depending on your point of view).
Ladies and Gentlemen, please allow me to present:
Deep Fried Butter
How does the FDA even allow such a thing to exist?
A quote from The Source of this piece of amazing news:
So here’s what Gonzales does: He takes 100 percent pure butter, whips it until it is light and fluffy, freezes it, then surronds it with dough. The butter-laden dough balls are then dropped into the deep fryer.
For purists who just want the unadulterated taste of butter, Gonzales serves up plain-butter versions of his creation. For others who want a little more pizzazz, he offers three additional versions with flavored butters: garlic, grape or cherry.
Apparently Abel Gonzales will be debuting this little concoction at the Texas State Fair. And I thought Iowa had the deep fried food market completely sewn up. I am ashamed of Iowans everywhere.
The article also mentions something about deep-fried Coca-Cola. Now that sounds intriguing.
A thousand thank you’s to Tom for sending me this article in the first place.
