I went to the Fry Party and all I got was this lousy stroke

A couple weeks ago I went to my friends’ annual Fry Party. They rent deep fryers and create two different types of batter so we can fry anything sweet and savory we get our hands on. For those of you who actually read this blog you might remember last year’s review when I literally ate so much I couldn’t move.

This time I was smart enough to take a break from achieving atherosclerosis and take some pictures of the fry. Here are some memorable creations:

THE FRY THAT SCREAMS AMURR’CA: Pizza hut slice

A guest at the party took one bite of this and said, “This kind of tastes like what Pizza Hut tastes like anyway,” so I don’t feel too disappointed about not trying it.

THE HEARTIEST FRY: Mac & cheese bites

Just the right combination of crusty exterior and creamy interior. It’s good enough on its own but this could be heaven with THIS.

THE INDULGENT FRY: Bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers

What do you get when you fry something that’s already fried but already wrapped around something hot temperature AND taste-wise? You get this aesthetically pleasing fry.

THE CLASSIC FRY: Oreo

Chocolately. Creamy. Fried-y. The only thing that was missing was some ice cream, which would not have survived in that climate.

THE PSEUDO HEALTHY FRY: Fried zucchini

For those of us who wanted to pretend like we were putting something healthy in our mouths, there was fried zucchini. It tasted pretty good.
Could have used some sauce though.

RUNNER UP: Strawberry

I was starting to wonder if this was a good idea when I saw all the oil turn red from the fruit but it turned out OK. NOTE: There are way too many dimples on a strawberry to get it fully coated with batter.  Also the juice inside the strawberry is scalding hot so beware.

And finally…

THE FRY THAT WILL STOP YOUR EFFING HEART: Fried hamburger

I didn’t try this since it was Nesa’s creation but just looking at it hardens my arteries.

Thanks for reading if you made it this far. I’m already looking forward to next year–provided I don’t need stent surgery first.
