Deep-Fried Bubblegum Looks Delicious, but is a Lie

Whether attempting to eat a deep-fried PSP, are thirsty and really can’t live without the deep frier, or want to keep it simple and kick back with some deep-fried butter, people always seem to find a way to batter and fry something previously thought to be safe from the oils of the frier and the disturbed machinations of the human heart. From another twisted corner of the human soul, deep-fried bubblegum, making an appearance at the 2011 State Fair of Texas. However, it’s a lie. The bubblegum is actually a marshmallow in the flavor of bubblegum, which I suppose makes it more edible than bubblegum and thus a somewhat more enjoyable treat.

The marshmallow is dipped in batter, deep fried, then topped with icing and sugar. The treat won the 2011 State Fair of Texas Seventh Annual Big Tex Choice Awards, beating out deep-fried pineapple upside-down cake, and deep-fried texas salsa and a deep-fried banana rolled in a flour tortilla and slathered with whipped cream, powdered sugar, cinnamon and either caramel or chocolate syrup. Read on below to check out a video of the lie. No strikethrough joke there.
