Chances are if you have found yourself at your local town fair or festival, you have indulged in a fried something or other. Perhaps an Oreo or a corn dog, but now you can sink your teeth into a new creation in the fried department – Kool-Aid.
This week marked the official beginning of summer, and with summer time comes the beginning of festival and fair season. And along with that, fair food.
Deep-fried Kool-Aid is the creation of "Chicken" Charlie Boghosian – an inventor of all things fried, Sign On San Diego reported .
The sweet treat consists of Kool-Aid powder, flour, powdered sugar and oil; although the full recipe is a secret, according to The New York Daily News .
People who have tried the unusual fare have described it like a sweet pastry or doughnut hole, saying it is sweet and tangy.
"It starts off tart and tangy, and then finishes really sweet … I love this stuff," one customer told Sign On.
Boghosian said that of all of his fried creations, this one has had the best debut. He sold between 400 and 600 orders per day during the first weekend at the San Diego County Fair. An order consists of 5 Kool-Aid balls."
Other past "Chicken" Charlie creations have been fried Klondike bars and Pop-Tarts.
