Fried Everything at the Fair
As Tulsa State Fair food booths prove, you can deep fry just about anything. Deep fried pickles, cheesecake, pumpkin balls, ice cream, candy bars, and kool-aid. That’s right, even kool-aid can be deep fried. At her booth on the midway, Cecelia Kenna sells fried kool-aid.
She says it looks like a hushpuppy and tastes like cherry kool-aid…and it’s a popular item…she says they sell a lot. Kenna says the donut cheeseburgers at the booth are also popular, but they’ve been available on the fairgrounds for a few years, so they’re not as new an experience as fried kool-aid.
