Fried Kool-Aid is the Devil’s Snack

There are times I know the Devil has minions on Earth, and whoever invented Fried Kool-Aid is clearly one of them. What in all that is good, holy, sanctified and healthy is with that???

And I’m the fool who wants to try Red Velvet Fried Chicken. Even I’ve got my limits. Besides, I’m limited to craving just ONE food that can pretty much clog your arteries with one bite. And I choose red velvet fried chicken to be that food of mine. I DON’T HAVE ROOM FOR ANOTHER!

Fried Kool-Aid

The Devil works through sweets sometimes

I found out about deep fried kool-aid this weekend when a friend sent me this article on how it’s been served at the San Diego State Fair. And it’s selling like hot cak…e…s (for lack of a better term). They’re selling between 400-600 orders a day, and there are 5 kool-aid balls per order.

San Diego’s hospitals might be getting PAID even more in the upcoming months as folks come in with all types of the sugars and high blood pressure. As if Kool-Aid itself ain’t already diabeetus in a cup. It’s pretty much sugar with a side of water. Then someone stared at it long enough and thought “what if I deep-fried it?” O_____o We need to use our creative powers and resourcefulness for good because this is just out of order.

This is why America’s obese. And why we can’t have nice things. Everything isn’t meant to be deep-fried. I mean DAMB!!! Folks would deep-fry OIL and eat it on a sammich.

I haven’t been to a state fair in years, but even if I was to go, I’ll stick to funnel cake. I enjoy life and I wanna live til I’m at least 95, so Fried Kool-Aid ain’t gon see my tastebuds. So yeah, NO THANKS!

Anyone brave enough to try deep fried kool-aid? Or do y’all also value your lives like I do?

    Nah. I’m not about that fried Kool-Aid life. I wanna LIVE!! ‘Sides, that looks disgusting. No thanks. -_______-

    • June 21, 2011 at 7:35 pm

      ah life is precious to me so I’ll pass on this one.

    I really need to know who thought of this and why? How do you look at a red Solo cup of Kool-Aid at a backyard children’s birthday party and think “I wonder how to fry this?”

    • June 21, 2011 at 7:34 pm

      RIGHT!!! SMH!

    Southerner here…and yeah, at our fairs and rodeos, we like to deep fry damn near anything…we have deep fried Coke balls (yeah, Coca Cola), deep fried Oreos, deep fried candy bars…we’ll pretty much deep fry damn near anything…but when I head out to the Houston Rodeo and the Texas State Fair, I stick with my usual: A Lemonaide slush, a Turkey leg, Funnel Cake and a candy apple to take home for later…

    • June 21, 2011 at 3:52 pm

      deep fried COCA COLA???? In REAL life?? I can’t e’em DEAL.

      • June 21, 2011 at 10:43 pm

        The Texas State Fair has also had deep fried beer and deep fried butter (Paula Deen just hit the ceiling)

      I JUST SAW THIS ON THE 5’O’CLOCK NEWS!!!! No lie! I was so juiced when I saw that, I can’t wait to go to the state fair 😀

    This is probably an unpopular opinion but I would taste it. In fact, I’m hoping someone somewhere (possibly me on a weekend) use a Kool-Aid based batter to make waffles and or friend chicken. What? I think of it as both research and community service.

    • June 21, 2011 at 3:51 pm

      I’ll prepare a nice eulogy at your funegro. Just in case.

    when i used to live in phoenix i went to the state fair and tried a fried snicker bar. it just tasted like a hot ass snicker with grease. i think i’m gonna pass on fried kool aid.

    it’s funny you red velvet chicken, last night while at work i started thinking about how i can cook some red velvet fried chicken….but this is just too much. i like my kool aid with ice, and watered down.

    • June 21, 2011 at 3:51 pm

      Fried snicker bar??? But why?

      If you make some red velvet fried chicken, I hope you send me some. 😀

    So folks always wanna text me about some new stuff and say “How you gonna act?”

    I’mma act like I got the sense God gave me and run like hell away from any event ever trying to serve such foolishness. Kool-Aid in its liquid form has probably only ever graced (and I use that term loosely) my lips once. Never again.

    And now folks wanna take that mechanically made (by Lucifer) sugared water concoction add lard/oil to it and heat it into solid form?!

    • June 21, 2011 at 3:49 pm

      YES LAWD!!! God ain’t invent kool-aid so we could fry it and ruin His good work. You’re a smart one, Sophia!

    See, this… a mess. This is about as bad as the Krispy Kreme cheeseburgers they had at our state fair this year. Folks were lined up for hours to get it. Smh.. my people, my people.

    • June 21, 2011 at 3:49 pm

      Krispy Kreme Cheeseburgers??? *gags*

      • June 21, 2011 at 11:00 pm

        YAAAAS the Luther Burger (yes, named after Luther Vandross) 3 Krispy Kremes, 2 beef patties with cheese, each patty topped with bacon and an egg on top. This is why Black people can’t have nice things. Except funerals.

    Yup. I’ll try it. All these Food Network shows got me jonesin’ for all kinda crazy stuff. I wanted to try the deep fried twinkies, oreos, etc. in Las Vegas but we had to keep it movin’; can’t roll up to the club with deep fried twinkie hanging off my gut.

    Deep frying some shit is the American way. We need to accept it, embrace it and admit we have a problem. America is a teenager (compared to other countries with a lengthier history); what do teenagers eat? Bullshit, that’s what!

    Yeah I remember when fried Coca-cola was a hit at the state fair here a few years ago. I know some folks who ONLY went to the fair for fried coke and turkey legs then went home….where they do that at? How you gonna pay half yo life savings on parking, admission, high ass fair food…then turn around and go home…smh.

    Kool-aid tho??…theres a candy lady in the hood somewhere REAL SALTY about this!!

  14. July 1, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    Yeah, I’ll have to pass on fried Kool-Aid. Twice the heartburn lol I don’t need it.

    I’m gonna have to admit that I did try the Fried Kool Aid at the San Diego Fair this year after hearing all the hoopla about it. It wasn’t that bad. It tasted like Kool Aid flavored donuts not sweetened or anything. Actually they were like cherry doughnut holes. They aiight.

    Yes. I admit it. I had deep fried Kool-aid at the NC State fair. Gross! I wasn’t even prepared for it. Some people said it tasted like a cherry donut.

    Ahhh hell naw!!!! Somebody owes my grandmother a helluvah lotta money, bcs she been doing this for her grandchurin since I was a little girl. Deep frying? That’s something that started way down in New Ellenton, SC, right outside of Aiken, SC (we so far down south, we may not even show up on the map). I have to pass still…that’s why I’m still alive and don’t have that sugar diabeetus that ails everyone else.

    I’m still calling a ‘turney bout this, tho.

  19. November 20, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    They have them on the east coast at the Big E. I’ve tried them along with fried Oreos, fried cheesecake and fried lasagna. It was more of a colored dough that was fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Not at the top of my list, but that damb cheesecake tho.

    This can’t be any different from all the other disgusting artery-clogging things we eat.
