The State Fair of Texas is known as the "Deep Fried Food Capital of the World" and every year vendors compete to come up with the most creative deep fried dish to amaze and sustain fair visitors. Deep Fried Twinkies and Deep Fried Snickers may have started the trend years ago but now they're old news. This year's top contender was Deep Fried Froot Loops...and I got 'em!
Here's what they look like. The round loops of fruity goodness not only garnish the tasty treat, they also make up the inner filling. Inside the crisp shell is a "goo" (for lack of a better term) that has the essence of Froot Loops. Somehow the cereal was mashed up or liquefied or goo-ified but it definitely tastes like the real deal.
Like many deep fried treats at the fair, the creators feel it necessary to dump a ton of powdered sugar on top of it. And that's not necessarily a bad thing but if I breathe in right before a bite, I tend to get a lung full of sugar...which is an unusual sensation.
Lastly, there's also a type of icing or topping to round out the experience. I wasn't sure but I think it was marshmallow flavor. I'm also not even sure that marshmallow is a flavor...it is, right? So as far as I'm concerned, we now have a brand new way to enjoy our favorite fruity breakfast treat. If you try them, tell 'em Toucan Sam sent ya. See you next year at the fair!
