We know it’s Summer In America because A) People are getting second degree burns from walking on the sidewalk barefoot, and B) Chicken Charlie’s is selling their newest creation, deep fried Trix and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, at the San Diego State Fair.
Though one could argue that God never intended sugar cereal to come together with a vat of oil (one’s so cute and the other’s so dangerous), consider this picture of a tiger and some piglets, as well as the one above of the colorful new snack.
Our country has a rich history of finding new, exciting sweets to turn into fair food, and a deep well of food photographers eager to show them in their best and worst lights. This summer, like all summers, will be a goldmine of straight-from-the-county-fair-to-your-computer-screen food porn.
So have some lemonade and relax. Here are three other deep fried treasures to whet your palate for the months to come.
