As a native Texan, I’m no stranger to odd fried foods, after all, the Texas State Fair has given the world many deep-fried delicacies such as Deep Fried Butter and Deep Fried Twinkies. Fun Fact: the CORN DOG was born in my fair state’s state fair.
But there’s a new battered baby on the block that I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, a creation that like all great fried things, has a pedigree directly from a fair, the San Diego County fair to be exact.
DEEP FRIED BREAKFAST CEREAL!
Say hello to the creation of one Charles Boghosian aka “Chicken Charlie” it’s your choice of Trix or Cinnamon Toast crunch dropped in batter and deep-fried to perfection. The balls are then topped with syrup and a garnish of the cereal in its natural state.
Honestly, I could care less about the Trix, the thought of that sickly deep-fried fruity cereal hot and mushy in my mouth makes me want to give the Silly Rabbit a rainbow shower. But real talk: that deep-fried Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal is blowing my mind. I’m gonna have to book a flight to San Diego. At the very least, I’ll need to update my will. Because one way or another, by travel or by my own Fry Daddy, I will have deep-fried Cinnamon Toast Crunch, it’s my right as an American.
