Apparently Fried Coke tastes great and is more filling which is great news for those of you who were afraid of excess carbohydrates without being accompanied by loads of fat.

Now other fairs in North Carolina and Arizona are following the trend, and other people are trying to emulate Gonzales’ recipe.
