Where Oreos need not go
Wilson County, TN
the box of 6 deep fried oreos
We always threaten to try a deep fried sugary snack every time we are at a fair or festival. This time we went through with it at the Wilson County Fair. We looked at deep fried Twinkies, Snickers, and Oreos. We opted for the deep fried Oreos that are finished with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. We ordered, and the fellow took out 6 oreos and dipped them in what looked like pancake batter, then put them immediately into the vat of hot bubbling oil.
We waited a few minutes, then he took the hot fried oreos and plopped them into our to-go box. We went to sit down and try these sugary and fatty treats. They were hot. They were burning our mouths. We waited for them too cool off a little and tried again. The inside was a bit melty from the melted cream layer that melted into the chocolate cookie layer. As we ate our second one each, we could feel the oleo levels rise in our veins and we started to get a sugar buzz.
I am glad we tried these things, but I don't think we need to ever order these up ever again. I guess I am a purest when it comes to cookies. The next time I have an Oreo, it will be straight up, no frying, and opened up first to eat the cream layer first, then the chocolate cookies second. And maybe some milk or hot tea to wash down the classic treat.
