Found this in an article on Google:
At least, at the Texas State Fair it is. It's Deep-fried Coke.

Abel Gonzales Jr. flavors his batter with Coca-Cola, deep fries it, drizzles Coke fountain syrup on it, then tops it all off with whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and a cherry. Gonzales's creation won for creativity at the second-annual Big Tex Choice Awards Contest, beating out such delicacies as deep-fried macaroni cheese and deep-fried Cosmos.


I don't know about this, maybe I'll see if I know anybody going to the Fair that would bring me one. Janice

Just found another one, and this one might work for us and our "cake balls":

Anyone Heard of "Fried Coke"?
No, not like your brain on drugs LOL.

I was just watching a segment on NBC. The chef's name (I think they said his name was Alex Gonzalez, from Texas) was preparing a "fried coke" desert. Yes, you got that right. Fried coke.

Apparently it's small, coke flavored dough balls which he deep fries, powders with confectioner's sugar, puts in a coke glass and tops with whipped cream (of course). Maybe there was some coke syrup too. They looked like small zeppoles.

I don't know - this sounds kind of unappealing to me personally, although maybe I'm being too harsh. I did recently taste a cake made with 7-Up of all things that was surprisingly tasty, so, who knows?

Happy to share with you all! Here's another one, the Fried Coke wasn't the first prize winner for new food this year, it got most creative! The winner is Fried Praline Perfection, and are coconut and pecan pralines, battered and deep fried, and they, beat out fried macaroni and cheese, a deep-fried cosmopolitan and other not-so-healthy treats to win the coveted title.

Can we all say "Clogged arteries". LOL Janice

heard about this on the radio and someone on there was saying how good the deep fried coke is.....I would try it but I don't think I'd like it either....I don't like pop and fried foods kill my stomach.

LOL.....and I just came home from the fair! (NC). This was my second night out there and this time our purpose was to try many different foods. Had the fried coke. Not exaclty what it thought it was. It just like whats posted here. Also tried the oreos, twinkies, snickers bar, and the cheescake. (I know im greedy). Kinda got curious with the fried pickle (i love pickles), but considering what i had already ate, I think it was best skipped.


There is at least and ounce of pure oil in me right now...

OMG ... I have been wanting to try that fried mac & cheese at Fridays, too!!!! I love mac & cheese, so I can only imagine how much better it must taste fried!!!! icon_smile.gif

Speaking of fried, I tried deep fried cookie dough at the Ohio State Fair this summer and it was one of the most amazing things I've ever tasted. Fried pickles are to die for, too!!!! OK, I'm hungry now!!!!! icon_lol.gif

Fried Coke would be the perfect ending to a lunch of fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches - washed down with a diet Coke, of course icon_eek.gif

Elvis would be proud icon_twisted.gif

There are some restaurants here that regularly offer fried pickles, and I have tried them, these are the hamburger sliced ones. They are kind of a shock to your taste buds, but pretty good eatin', well at least if you like pickles at all!

I would expect that the ones at the fair are whole and on a stick like a corny dog? Janice

Hey gang! Fried coke wasn't that great. It was like giant donut holes with little flavor sprinkled in a light cin/sugar. Then a bunch of Coke syrup in the bottom of the cup - very little in the top. The bottom part was nearly gaggy it was soooo strong.
I had high hopes and was disappointed....now the donkey tail was another story!

Okay, what is the donkey tail, haven't heard about that one! It brings some strange pictures to my mind, I'll have to admit.

I'd have to agree that the coke syrup sounds pretty gaggy. Maybe yours wasn't so good because somebody did it wrong, I don't know why all the syrup would be on the bottom like that.

Were my daughter works, they serve fried pickles spears!!! They are so good dipped in ranch dressing. I would love them for lunch today, but it's a greek salad for me(not fried).

also, there are several bar & grills restaurants they serve jalapeno bottle caps with ranch dressing.

I've had the fried pickle chips (like on hamburgers) as well as the fried pickle spears. Like barbara-ann said, they are fantastic dipped in ranch dressing!!! Applebee's had them for a little while during the summer, but they are gone now. icon_cry.gif There are a few restaurants around here that have them for appetizers. Of course, they must be sooooo bad for you, but OMG, they are sooooooo good. I am a pickle freak to begin with, so dipping them in batter and frying them just makes them heavenly. icon_smile.gif

I just sent cowdex a PM asking her to come back and tell us what the donkey tail is...in the meanwhile I am having a peanut butter sandwich, a big tall glass of milk with ice, and two dill pickles, not fried! My ex-DH thought this combination was really bad, but it tastes really good! Janice

Donkey tail is a beef (yeah, right!) frank with a slice down lenghtwise, a strip of cheese in the slice then wrapped in a tortilla and fried. Served with chili and cheese. Think Sonic's footlong chili dog but a tortilla instead of the bun!

That actually sounds pretty tasty, but why name it something that sounds so not tasty?

Thanks cowdex, for relieving our curiosity. Did they have those at the Fair? Wonder why nobody mentioned that one...well duh, who wants to talk about something to eat called donkey tail!

While we're on the fried foods topic ... DH and I went to Max & Erma's for dinner tonight. We tried their new crispy lasagna rolls. Basically, it's lasagna without the sauce, battered and fried, with marinara sauce for dipping. It was fantastic, as you might guess!!! Fried foods are EVIL, I tell ya!!!!! icon_lol.gif
