It’s the end of summer and time to contemplate, if not visit, State Fairs selling increasingly imaginative deep-fried treats. Apparently, deep-fried Oreos and deep-fried butter are so last year.
The Wall Street Journal tells us that the Great New York State Fair—in Syracuse, right now—has a better one: “Twinks.”
And what, pray tell, is a Twink?
- Take one Twinkie.
- Stuff with a Twix candy bar
- Wrap in bacon.
- Dip in batter.
- Sprinkle with sugar.
The damage? Just south of 1,000 calories.
