SAN DIEGO -- Last year it was deep fried butter. The year before that, chocolate covered bacon. This year the food buzz at the San Diego Fair is likely to be deep fried Kool-Aid.

Annually, fried food creations show up at county fairs in southern California. Each year, Charlie Boghosian invents wilder and wilder creations. According to LA Weekly, his two biggest sellers at the San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles county fairs are deep fried avacados and deep fried frogs' legs.

This year, he's done Kool-Aid. He took some mini-muffins that he made with cherry Kool-Aid, and deep fried them. Once they come out of the fryer, they get a dusting of powdered sugar. He's charging $5.95 for four of the minis.

The other thing he's got going this year is a "totally fried brownie." Take a brownie, batter it and deep fry it. Once again, powdered sugar goes on top of it after the frying.

I don't know about you, buy my arteries are screaming at me just reading the descriptions and looking at the pictures.
