Deep fried BUTTER offered at the Ex this year!

I am not kidding! What will they think of next?

Check out this Sun article if you don't believe me...

This will wash those Tiny Tom donuts down nicely. ;-

  1. Well if you think of it simply as fried choux pastry with buttercream filling then it isn't that much of a stretch.

      Either way, it sounds pretty disgusting to me. Don't get me wrong, I love butter, choux pastry and buttercream. But DEEP FRIED? Can't picture it, nor do I want to. The sounds of it just doesn't do it for me. Thanks but I'll stick to the old fashioned greasy stuff I've come to know and love (pogos, pizza, tiny toms, waffle ice cream, fries, roti, cheap chinese).

        My heart hurts just thinking about it...haha. I like the CNE's ice cream cones with cake on the bottom. I've started making my cupcakes like that, and it's good because the cones don't drip. What are waffle ice cream fries? Or did you miss a comma?

          ooops, sorry to disappoint Erin, I missed the coma. Hmmm, maybe I'm on to something tho'.

          Now I could get in to the beef sundae thing. I have no problem with anything mashed potatoe and gravy-ish. Love the cherry top!

            Yum... I want the deep fried PBJ & banana... and the fried coke sounds like fun too. This kind of thing could make the Ex worthwhile again, I'm all for it!

            Oh and PS, I think the 'waffle ice cream fry' concept has alot of potential

              But don't they know there's an obesity epidemic going on?
              Much thanks for the glimpses into the the foods I am missing here in NYC, an area of relative deep frying poverty. About the other 10 winners referenced - to lightly paraphrase Rick (and this post is made for just such an activity), There are parts of Brooklyn I wouldn't try invading with that deep fried pizza. But then again

            If it is anything other than a big frozen pat of butter, battered and fried, I will not be happy.

            I am imagining an exploding fried butter bomb. Mmmm.... perhaps I am setting the bar too high.


            1. re: shiro miso

              This is totally blowing my mind!!

              Based on the link provided by ekim256 it really is a scoop of butter, battered and deep-fried. I am concerned about the 4 flavours though-- I mean I'm going to want to try them all, if they're here, right? Grape!? GRAPE-FLAVOURED DEEP-FRIED BUTTER?!

            1. re: Pincus

              mmmm Chicken Fried Bacon!

              Damn i want this, it would go perfect on a burger too!

            2. I would like to try this at least once. Just to say that I have and that I lived to tell the tale.

              1. I don't think it's really that bad. I usally polish off a decent sized ball of butter when I come across good bread at a restaurant. We all do, this is simply a small step up. I would try one and report back! I did read an article somewhere where the fair offered Crispy Creme Chesse Burger topped with chocolate covered bacon. How do you like them apples eh? It brings KFC's Double Down to shame almost.

                1. And then there is the krispy kreme cheeseburger:


                  Sadly (or not, really), only at the Wisconsin State Fair.

                    If they were smart, they would Deep Fry their Ice Cream Waffle Sandwiches, and there should be chocolate covered bacon inside!

                    1. re: jmarcroyal

                      Lol...better yet, slice open a Tiny Tom donut, stuff it with a scoop of butter, then batter it up and deep fry them. Just a little twist to it I guess. I'm drooling just thinking about what types of combinations you can come up with that would sound good after being deep fried.

                    2. re: TorontoJo

                      Couple of my friends went down to GenCon and they had these at the Indiana State fair...if you want it, it's drivable! :)
