Fried coke sounds disgusting.



It reminds me of fried oreos at our local fair back at home.



P.S. I'm not fat.

That's revolting.





Just for the record though, I'm definitely not fat. At all. ;D

I'm still not sure what this is. Is it cake, dipped in Coke syrup then deep-fried, or is it something deep-fried then with Coke syrup poured on to it?



Almost anything deep-fried sounds good, but Communism sounded good, too.



My wife swears by deep-fried cheesecake she had in Tennessee. Sounds good!

Expose air to a temperature of 1K so that it freezes, briefly put it in the fryer so that the solid air will not become gaseous, and eat it. Try not to get a frostbitten tounge!

I'd absolutely try it. Deep-fry pretty much anything and I'm game.

Yes and yes...it's a donut-like cake soaked in Coke syrup (thus the fried Coke) THEN they pour more Coke syrup over it!





I also adore deep fried pickles

That's what I was thinking. The only thing I associate cola syrup with is stomach flu. Therefore, I do not find a fried treat made with "medicine" to be very appealing.



and BTW - I am fat. But it's not because I'm sitting on my ass eating double-fried cheese butter dipped in mayo and filled with cream... I have sugar and PCOS issues, but am otherwise healthy and eat a balanced diet and am active... so yeah, what now, bizzznatches....

Hrm, that doesn't sound so good. I don't eat much fried food. I prefer my fat-making in the form of cookies.

hmm. i like fried food.



fried food is not the enemy- everything is fine in moderation especially if you exercise. the enemy is portion sizes and the TV.

Obesity is an issue in the U.S. Obesity rates are higher in many European countries, and the rest are not much lower.

Got any more stereotypes you'd like to trot out?

Ok, that sounds absolutely disgusting! I am not much of a fried food person because it hurts my stomach. When I go to the fair, I usually get an elephant ear (dough with cinnamon and sugar on them) but I haven't had one in years and I don't really know if they are vegan.



And yes America has alot of overweight people, but does it need to be said? I am underweight so maybe I can balance some of it out.
