Three Words: Deep Fried Butter

An impressive description of what I believe the kids call "extreme food" on display at the Indiana State Fair... now I grew up on the east coast just like the author, but we still had State Fairs... but I'm pretty sure the food didn't get much more unhealthy than funnel cake. Apparently things have changed... or maybe it is specifically a Midwest thing? I kind of doubt it though... seems like a new trend that probably would be welcome at any State Fair... as disturbing as that may be.

UPDATE: So more information on Deep Fried Butter for the morbidly curious:
“I mean, butter by itself does not taste good,” Gonzales said. “Nobody just grabs a stick of butter and eats it. That would be gross.”

So here’s what Gonzales does: He takes 100 percent pure butter, whips it until it is light and fluffy, freezes it, then surrounds it with dough. The butter-laden dough balls are then dropped into the deep fryer.
Yes that's right... he made eating sticks of butter less gross by deep frying it.
