Deep-fried Snickers in the papers again

Deep-fried Snickers

It’s almost time for state fairs to start rolling into town again and that means more deep fried candy bars. The editor of the Patriot Ledger (a newspaper in Boston) emailed me last week asking if they could use one of my pictures of deep-fried Snickers in their paper. I said yes (and why not?) so here’s the online article, photo credit and all. For those keeping score, that’s the second paper that has used that picture – I guess that’s because they are the only good pictures of a deep-fried Snickers that can be found online and our review is the #2 Google hit.

I do like that review though – it’s the first one that I remember that I tried to be funny and (I think) it worked. I had fun with it. I wasn’t even trying to do a good job with those pictures I took and now that set of pictures is more famous than this whole site is. Maybe I should change careers and start photographing fair food. Nah, too seasonal. State fairs come once a year, candy is everyday.

Fried Candy Bars in NYC

Categories: Candy,Chocolate Candy

Chip Shop NYC

Oddly enough, my review of Deep Fried Snickers is one of the most visited pages here on Candy Addict. Recently, the topic of fried candy bars came up in discussion in the candyswappers group. Sarah had this to say:
If you’re a New Yorker, there’s the always wonderful Chip Shop in Park Slope. They deep fry lots of candy–and an Atkins bar. I think you can even take them your candy bar of choice if they don’t have it and they’ll fry it up for you. Either way, they’ve got Mars bars:

Poking around on their site, they do indeed fry Atkins bars “(Double battered w/extra sugar if you want)”. The other fried items include: Mars Bar, Bounty (a British version of Mounds, not the paper towel), Twinkies, Twix, Snickers, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. So, if you’re ever in NYC and need a heart attack on a stick, stop by the ChipShop.

Another view

My family and I went to the 2005 NC State Fair last week and I vowed I would get myself a deep-fried Snickers. I had heard stories about how good they are, but in all the years (5?) I have attended the NC State Fair, I never tried it. They deep fry all kinds of things at the fair: Oreos, Twinkies, Cheeseburgers, strawberries, etc. but, being a Candy Addict, I had to try the deep-fried candy bar. Read on for the full description and pictorial.
