Any one want to create a vegan version? You'll be my hero. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Fill in that annoying gap in vegetarian/vegan cuisine - things that you probably shouldn't eat at all, but once a year ... why not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Actually two other recent fair food creations sound more promising - deep fried soda and deep fried frito pie.<br><br>
The first sounds promising because the soda can function as a leavener. No need to rely on eggs. Might need something to bind it though. (Deep fried Pepsi [I'm agnostic about the soda brand used, thus 'deep fried soda'] is just a fried pastry made with soda pop if you're having trouble picturing it).<br><br>
The second is already one of my favorite dishes unfried, frying it would just add to the 'low cuisine' feel I find really charming. Plus, it's a nod to our roots. C. E. Doolin, creator of fritos was a vegetarian. A little background from NPR: <a href="http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15377830" target="_blank">http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=15377830</a><br>
Frito pie itself was developed by his wife, who was not.

They have this at the San Diego County Fair this year. Even if I were an omni, no.

If they're just flour, water, and kool-aid powder fried, would they not already be vegan? (Assuming there's not another layer of egg-containing batter. And that the powder itself is vegan.)

My guess is there are other ingredients as well. Like donut hole ingredients.

That doesn't appeal. I did enjoy the occassional deep fried mars bar before giving up dairy though. I am definitely going to attempt to bake something that tastes like mars bar at some point.
