We're fairly sure we know what Paula Deen's answer would be, but we want to know:
Yes there should realize the opportunity to RSS commentary, quite simply, CMS is another on the blog.
Bourdain is right. Paula Deen is disgusting. The woman could strip naked and wrap herself in bacon and no one would notice.
Yet a new concept in 'just how disgusting can you make something and still convince some people it qualifies as "food"?' For crying out loud. I try never to eat fried ANYTHING but butter? Please. The very thought is revolting. The very best Fair Food? A nice roasted ear of corn (preferably without butter), maybe a fresh fruit smoothie (hold the additional sweetener, please, so I can taste the fruit), how about some freshly roasted nuts?
i like deep fried farts! lol!
Sweet Peter Jesus, that is disgusting!
I be smackin' my lips Y'all.
WHY i ask?Just Because you can fry just about anything... doesnt mean you should. america already has an obesity problem lets just enhance it by handing them a heart disease on a stick
If somepaid me $1000 or more and paid for my hospital bill should I have a heart attack then I might do it. But that is disgusting.
I would not eat fried butter but I have to admit one of the best things I've ever tasted in my life is FRIED CHEESECAKE! There used to be a little fast food Chinese place Fort Lauderdale that made the best fried cheesecake in the world. It was little chunks of cheese cake battered and fried to perfection. They gave me a free sample with my lunch order one day and I was instantly hooked. I've looked for it at other Chinese restaurants since then and have never been able to find it on any menu anywhere. I don't know if that restaurant is still there because I moved away.
I'll help you find your little Chinese restaurant.
Don't y'all be making fun o' Hillbilly Chef now.
If I'm going to eat half a stick of butter I'm going to be sure I'll enjoy it...in a pound cake or something.
I hate fried food, the title made me throw up a bit,.
I was at the Wisconsin State Fair today and I saw this but I decided to go for the deep fried PB&J instead. I made the right choice.
I dont even like regular butter why would I eat deep fried butter, that's nappy
The Orange County (California) Fair has had deep fried butter for at least two seasons. This is really just Chicken Kivv without the chicken.
Done at the Texas State Fair two years ago. Meh.
I find the notion of eating fried butter scary. And gross.
Only if it was wrapped in bacon
I'm sure that will be next.
Why would I? I'm not Homer Simpson!
I have tried it and it wasnt that great. As soon as I bit into the butter ball it squirted EVERYWHERE...What you should try is Krispy Kreme Donut Burger YUM =)
Pull it out right after the batter sets. Wrap it in BACON, drop it back in. SMART!
It's great for celebrating a successful protest against healthcare reform.
Yo dawg, I heard you like fried food, so I got you deep fried food fryer, so now you can deep fry your food while you're deep frying.
...did I do it right?
Blech! Sounds disgusting. And even if you encase the stick of butter in batter, doesn't the butter melt? Sounds messy, too. Belly up to the trough, America. Bibs all around.
If it sounds disgusting to you, and it sounds disgusting to me, and it sounds disgusting to most people on this discussion, then I doubt it's gonna be a big hit with the rest of America. It's a State Fair novelty, not the "Official Food of America".
I do believe it melts into the butter and probably tastes much like freshly buttered sweet bread. (If you've ever made homemade sweet bread, you know this is one of life's greatest experiences.)
Unhealthy? Definitely. You certainly would want to save this for a once a year treat, but not as disgusting as it initially sounds.
Paula Deen must be informed of this, stat.
Legalize Fried Marijuana!
I don't have good sound at work. What, pray tell, are they *urp* topping it with?
1/8th lb of butter, batter is heavy with cinnamon and honey, coated with glaze. It'd be funny if it was butter glaze, but seemed like a standard sugar glaze.
This is absolutely disgusting! Who in their right mind would eat a WHOLE stick of butter?? Not only that but FRIED??? ugh! The parent of the child in the video should be smacked. I would never let my kid eat that!
Are you kidding me? This country is full of lard asses and someone has come up with this concoction to add fuel to the fire. People are just pathetic. Do somesome constructive with your creativity and ideas, why are we trying to kill each other in the most delicious way?
This is NOTHING NEW.... Anyone who has been to the Texas State Fair has known for years that you can get (almost) ANYTHING Deep-Fried at the Texas State Fair... Last year, they did the deep fried butter, Oreo cookies, snickers candy bars, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, deep fried BEER, Twinkies, and a host of all kinds of other things... You guys are at least a year behind on "Deep Fried" concoctions at State Fairs...
So, what the hell happened to deepfried ice cream, twinkies and bananas?
I have my mother's freakishly-low cholesterol. There are times I love this; namely when I'm deep-frying anything I can get my hands on. That said: I can see both sides on this. One side of me is repulsed while the other side is strangely intrigued. As long as it's not solid butter in the middle, I think I could try it without gagging.
Throwing up would be one thing, shitting your pants could turn into a real possibility too.
I'd say the odds are good of you shitting someone ELSE'S pants too!
They had this at the FL state fair this year. And since I only go to the fair to try the food, of course I ate this. But, I had 2 bites and threw it away. There is no reason anyone should eat more than that.
The FL State Fair is my once-a-year horribly-bad-food indulgence, too. The only sure thing I eat when I go is an elephant ear with cinnamon sugar. Anything else I eat there is because it's new and sounds interesting. Deep fried oreos were the best surprise at the fair a couple of years ago. We looked for the fried butter last year and only found fried Pepsi, eesh. We passed on that. Maybe we'll find it in 2012.
@AleeD, thats how I am too, once a year at the big state fair. As an adult I don't go for the rides, I go to eat. I eat what I want because besides that and the major holidays I eat a very healthy diet and excercise, so i don't feel guilty when I do splurge. (Although I will admit I probably have fried pickles every few months :)I too passed on the pepsi oh and the kool aide too.
I prefer biscuits with mustard or some of them French-fried taters.
If I were starving to death crossing the Mojave, they'd find my dead body with the bowl of fried butter next to me, untouched.
Why would anyone willingly eat this? I almost lost my lunch watching the video.
Ditto my breakfast.
Gross... I like butter, but steer clear for calorie reasons. I certainly wouldn't eat this! No doubt why Americans are obese and unhealthy. Eat some carrot sticks and go for a run.
Yep, it's the fried butter.
Who thinks up this stuff? I thought the super duper hamburger made with two Krispy Kreme doughnuts was bad...but this is disgusting.
Must admit, I am tempted to try that one...
Would you pay for my quadruple bypass? Why the hell would someone come up with something like this when obesity and health issues related to being overweight are dragging on our society so much already? Idiots...
Hey Angie calm down, no one is forcing you to eat it. Ironically you will probably die of a heart attack before anyone else on this thread!
That's it! I have no sympathy for most obese people anymore. You are a big part of our health care issue today!
Already did last year at the San Diego County Fair. Overrated. Not nearly as scary as people think. It comes out looking pretty much like a big fat churro with most of the butter already melted into the breading.
Does this treat come with it's own set of defibrillator paddles?
Only if it was organic butter!
That was funny!
Disgusting. This is why you're fat. I'm embarrassed enough to be American, now this.
Instead of being embarrassed about being an American, you should be embarrassed about being a sheep and allowing the media to lead you by the nose with their sensationalized stories.
You are embarrassed to be an American? By all means, leave and find citizenship elsewhere. I'd be interested to learn which country you think is better than here.
Ummm...Canada for one.
Canada has 24.1% obesity versus our 34.4%. This is a difference worth praising and studying. Our cultures and genetics are similar in many ways, yet our northern neighbors end up with significantly less obesity in their population.
Thank you! Why do people always feel the need to insult all Americans based on a stupid "news" article? If you look at the poll, most people wouldn't even try it.
Yea sure. Just not enough to pack up and leave, though, right? fn wank.
Oh that looks delicious! Especially if you spice up the batter. Calories don't matter, the base ice cream at Coldstone for a regular size already has 600 calories.
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. My guess is this thing has about 600-650 calories, and 45-50 grams of fat. It would be a meal replacement, just really high on the fat. Still.. Ugh... Maybe when I was younger, now I'd just feel sick for the rest of the day.
Well, I'm blessed with the ability to despise the taste of butter to begin with. Alway have and always will so it makes sense that I sort of gagged a little when I saw this video.
I tried it at our county fair, it tasted like toast, but I could only eat 1 bite...more than that and I would have gotten sick.
Fried Butter does not really appeal to me, but then again I do not really care for the taste of butter, but deep fried snickers or pickles? or even just fried dough? YUM and no I don't eat these things all the time, like once in a blue moon, but I do something called excersize and not all Americans are fat! get a new insult please it just makes you sound ignorant!
I think I will pass thanks, but if this is your thing, then enjoy.
Iowa is so behind Texas.
The comments about the cinnamon bun and french toast do a good job of pointing out how loaded (and tasty!) the concoctions are with butter.
Ewww... Why would you do that to your body??
There are plenty of things you can do to the body once or twice without detrimental effects. Eating deep fried butter is one .....
I would have a taste. I wouldn't make it a part of my regular diet.
Everything in moderation.
Even moderation. I would try it!
Ugh. And people are starving in Somalia. The butter dripping down the child's chin and hands was enough to put me off.
There are children starving in America, dare I say in DC, too. Be "put off" about that (I hope it means you fwah'd).
Get off the soapbox darlin', it makes you look like an a$$.
It's painful to be reminded of the 800lb gorilla in the room. I forgive you.
@Paid Advertisement... and it can be yours for the low low price of $149!, but if you act in the next 10 minutes, we'll slash that in half! The Utra Fryer can be yours for $74.99...and because we are so confident you will LOVE your new Ultra Fryer, were gonna give you TWO Ultra fryers, one for you to keep and one to give to a friend! just pay additional proccessing and shipping costs (fine print, processing and shipping for these two monstrosaties will be atleast $75 for 2 items that cost $4 to assemble in China by 4 year olds, so they are still getting their $150)
I will kick you in the nuts.
@PA WTF is your problem? get a sense of humor
Many apologies, that was my sense of humor :)
It's cartman from southpark! Always makes me laugh!
@PA, now that I reread that in my head with a Cartmen-esque accent, it IS funny, however next time give a heads up (You Ba4tard!) :)
Heads up will be given!
Or simply add the tag for the low, low price of only $19.95!! While supplies last, get yours NOW!
Stupid system won't allow faux HTML?! Then try the NEW, more compatible (/Cartman) tag for only $24.95!!
Sure the butter melted but you are still eating a whole stick of butter! Barf!
Actually, the story says it's an eighth of a pound, so that's half a stick. And it looks like most of it runs down your arm anyway. Still gross, though.
Tired of only eating fried food that has only been fried once? Well does WHAMco have the answer for you! Our new Ultra Fryer will actually fry your fryer while your fryer is frying food! That's double the frying power in the same convenient space! Since the fryer is being fried and your food is being fried in the fryer, your food will be double fried! That's double the fried taste, double the fried crunch, and double the fried goodness*. Order in the next ten minutes and we will double your order! That's right, we will DOUBLE your order! Two Ultras Fryers for the price of one! DOUBLE!
*Goodness only available in 49 states.
Honey, you just made me wet....
Does it look like melted butter but smell like fish?
That would be funny if I didn't actually live in the stroke *did I say that?* Pardon me, Bible belt where they would deep-fry blood pressure medications if they could. I actually have a co-worker who fries hush puppies THREE TIMES for his kids, in bacon drippings, after Sunday church. Just the though of that makes me...uh..uhh, *ohdear*..GRROAAACKKK.
I can't stop laughing!
no, but maybe if it were fried "I cant believe its not butter"!
This is why Americans are fat... where else do they do this?
Fat doesn't make you fat, carbs make you fat
Calories make you fat.
FAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU FAT??? OH LORD, HOW FAT ARE YOU?
It's the fat calories that make you fat. Or, in my case, make my clothes smaller.
Nonono, doing the stuffayouface with obdurate, repeated conviction, ahhhh, that gets you fat.
Yeah, we may be fat, but you're ugly and we can diet.
Americans are fat because they eat low quality, nutrient depleted, toxin-rich, dead foods that their bodies can't properly digest, so they don't actually get the calories they eat. Their bodies go into starvation mode as a result, and start feverishly storing as much energy as possible as fat in preparation for famine. Many ancillary body functions not vital to immediate functioning will begin to shut down (such as the immune system, or higher mental functioning). As a consequence, these people have very low usable energy, are frequently sick, and generally drawn into some type of stupor that inhibits logical thinking and prevents them from being able to make the connection between diet and physical condition.
The equation that fat is stored when one eats more calories than used or fat is burned with the opposite combination is true but is an oversimplification.
And it's also true that eating fat doesn't cause fat; at least not directly. Fat contains 8 calories/g while carbs and proteins contain 2 calories/g. As long as you have a healthy balanced diet and a high metabolism, fat will be converted to energy and used in one of the many body functions, or utilized for muscular energy. In un unhealthy body, however, the energy derived from fat will likely be converted to fat (starvation mode).
Emvaz, your explanation is quite good but you're a bit off on your calorie numbers. Fat contains 9 calories per gram, not 8. Carbs and proteins each contain 4 calories per gram, not 2.
Americans are fat due to lack of exercise. If you burn more calories than you take in, you lose weight. If not, you gain.
True. One can eat this if they have an overall healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet with good exercise (or at least some). Treats are great, I had a 'piggy pop (bananna and bacon dipped in chocolate) and it was wonderful, but most people with healthy diets wouldn't eat deep fried butter, that just crosses a new line... one thing to try fried odd fair foods but fried butter? This is coming from someone who's had a deep fried mars bar...
Yeah, they're fat because they eat too much fried butter. Neither I nor anyone I know would ever eat something so disgusting.
Fried butter is very good. The fair that I was at put the butter into a dough piece and then fried it.
Only in America.....hurl.
I believe that is pronounced, "AMUR-I-CUH!!"
Try to get it right next time.
No no no. There's no "I" in "MUR-KUH!" lol
My deepest sympathies to your coronaries.
Seems it would taste a lot like a very over buttered piece of bread.
I'd taste it, but I couldn't eat a whole stick.
Haha!! I am first.. I think.. Where is my deep fried prize?
What would be the point?
being before you, killjoy.
