The biggest buzz all over the blogosphere is deep-fried butter. Even though it's nothing new — apparently Paula Deen's sung the praises of it before — it's one of eight contenders vying for the Big Tex Choice Award at this year's State Fair of Texas. "Pure butter is whipped, then injected with different flavors, surrounded by dough and fried," described The Dallas Morning News.
I'll try anything once, but I'm pretty sure this invention has taken deep-fried food one step too far. At 810 calories per stick — and that's before it's been deep-fried — I'm pretty sure even the biggest butter lover, Julia Child, would find it a bit obscene. Would you eat it?
