7 Ridiculous Deep Fried Foods

Every year, the State Fair of Texas holds the Big Tex Choice Awards, a chance for the fair concessionaires to concoct their craziest fried food ideas in hopes of winning one of the top two spots. This week, the title of Best Taste went to the Deep Fried Jambalaya (shown above), and the Fried Bacon Cinnamon Roll (below) was named Most Creative.

Click through to see some of the honorees from previous years. Calling some of these “food” is a stretch to begin with, and a dip in the deep fryer certainly doesn’t add to the nutrition value —but we must admit, the number of different things humans manage to fry is pretty impressive!

Interesting...saw some weird articles about deep fried things from Calgary and Toronto but these ones also take the cake. Of course some places outdo even these with deep fried tarantulas which are sold at local markets in Cambodia. Hard to believe, but true.

Just the thought of some of these was enough to make me want to 'hurl'. Just because you can, doesn't mean you have to!
