Deep-fried delights at the Erie County Fair

Deep-fried Oreos are so early 2000s—it’s too easy. Fair food has moved on to bigger, better, seemingly unfryable things.
Erie County Fair representatives have announced some of the hotly anticipated deep-fried dishes that will be offered by select vendors throughout the fairgrounds. Among them? Deep-fried Kool-Aid and deep-fried butter. Yep.
Deep-fried Kool-Aid isn’t completely new to the fair and carnival food circuit. It made headlines last year, but the unusual food will now grace (or grease) Western New Yorkers’ tummies.
Other outlandish fried items to taste at this summers Erie County Fair, which runs Aug. 8 to 19, include:
Catfish on a stick
Chicken-fried bacon with gravy
Breakfast sausage dipped in pancake batter on a stick
Doughnut dog (reminiscent of last year’s doughnut burger, also known as the Big Kahuna Burger)
