A taste of the state fair will be heading to one Plano, Texas Walmart in the form of a new in-store restaurant owned by Texas State Fair fried food legend Isaac Rousso. It’s a match made in Heaven…or Hell depending on how you look at it.
State Fair Treats will open at the location on September 20th, serving fair favorites like corn dogs and funnel cakes, as well as a variety of more experiential fare, such as funnel cake fries, deep-fried bacon hash browns and cookie fries—the latter of which was a big hit at the Texas State Fair this year.
It’s expected that the location will serve up to 2 million customers in the next year. Additional stores are also being planned in Texas and across the nation.

YouTuber “HellthyJunkFood” has recreated a Canadian favorite in the form of Bacon Wrapped Deep Fried Poutine.
For the uninitiated, Poutine consists of French fries and cheese curds topped with a light brown gravy. As the name confirms, this incarnation includes a date with bacon and the fryer and reportedly packs a whopping 1,300 calories.

There’s a new champion in the world of unholy fast food mashups, and you’ll be able to find it at Burger King. In select Southern California locations that is.
Don’t worry though—something tells me that Mac n’ Cheetos is too amazingly preposterous to die in the testing phase. It should launch nationwide soon enough.
With that in mind, you’ll be happy to know that 5-pieces will only set you back $2.49 and each order will include ranch dipping sauce (because mac n’ cheese covered in Cheetos dust just isn’t a long enough trip to flavor country).
Live vicariously through the YouTuber below as he taste tests these new treats. [click to continue…]
In an effort to bring the world food as it was in the 18th century, YouTuber Jonathan Townsend has recreated fried chicken using an old English recipe from 1736.
Sourced from Nathan Bailey’s Dictionarium Domesticum, the preparation differs from present-day fried chicken in virtually every way, though the results look the same. Instead of a typical buttermilk-based marinade, this recipe involves a three hour soak in lemon juice and malt vinegar, and replacing wet and dry breading with a single-step application of flour and white wine.
As for the frying itself, is is believed that lard or or clarified butter were typically used in place of vegetable oil.

There’s finally a way to get a deep fried Twinkie without having to go to a county fair – and we have Hostess and Walmart to thank.

DudeFoods has given birth to another fried creation that will cause widespread drooling and hunger pangs.
As revealed in the video below, the Deep Fried Doritos Breaded Qdoba Burrito involves dipping the burrito in egg, rolling it in Doritos and dropping it into some 375 degree oil. Unfortunately, there’s no word on how it actually tasted, but for many that question is likely already answered just by looking at the ingredient list. [click to continue…]
For San Francisco’s Stupid Sh*t No One Needs and Terrible Ideas “Hackathon”, Jonathan Marcus decided to utilize a process called “spherification” to actually deep fry water.
The method uses calcium alginate, which surrounds liquids with a membrane that gives them a shape and the ability to be handled like solids. Although spherification is utilized in upscale restaurants for all kinds of dishes and drinks, frying it is massively dangerous. One leak could allow the hot oil to contact the water, resulting in a violent explosion that could lead to fires and third degree burns. So the “stupid sh*t” and “terrible ideas” labels are very appropriate.
Check out the demonstration below, and be sure to never, never try it. [click to continue…]
Using a doll house set, mini tools and mini ingredient portions, the mystery chef at Miniature Space has shown the world how to create dime-sized donuts with chocolate and vanilla glaze.
Although the result makes the average Dunkin’ Donuts munchkin look like meal for a giant, we imagine that the calorie count is still depressingly high.
See how they were made in the video below.

As a nod to the Deadpool movie and its star Ryan Reynolds, Cantina Dos Segundos in Philadelphia added a new dish to their menu: the Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga. I’m sure Ryan would appreciate the nice Canadian touch to the dish, and Deadpool… well, Deadpool would definitely love this delicious-looking chimichanga.

Prepare to obsess over the “Fried Maltella”, a giant ball of fried vanilla ice cream, Nutella, crushed Maltesers malt balls and hot, salted caramel sauce.
Unfortunately, the only way to try it is to visit Sydney-based café Piccolo Me, or figure out how to make it yourself.
Eating it will likely spark a massively unhealthy obsession. Not being able to eat it will likely cause you to descend into madness. Either way, it will be your downfall.
Check out a Vine video of the Fried Maltella below, along with more mouth-watering pics—if you can handle it.
