I had some of those at a street fair last year. Tasty.

The fried Oreo, second in my heart (and my arteries) only to the deep fried Twinkie. Good find, konolia!

The concept may be sound, but the tone of that page was for me more cutesy-sickly-sweet than an Oreo itself.

Holy crap are my arteries in trouble.

I must say I don't think the fried Twinkie holds up as well as the fried Mars bar.

Having this FPP appear within the same week as this one is cruel. Cruel, Cruel, Cruel.

That is an entirely disgusting concept... I can't wait to try it.

I would definitely use thicker batter than is pictured there. This stuff barely clings to the cookie! (I think I've got some stale Oreos at home... and an electric deep-fryer... and plenty of batter-making stuff... hm.)

Just got back from the Minnesota State Fair, where everything is deep-fried...including, this year, corn on the cob. My husband had to try it, and the batter made the corn freakishly sweet, like corn fritters. I'm stickin' to the regular stuff...

I saw them at the county fair last year, and was tempted. They were surprisingly good, though I struggled to finish 3 of them, and had to throw away the rest for fear of my life. I could actually feel my arteries constricting.

My son told me in an IM conversation that he'd eaten seven. Apparently a dare was in effect. Obviously I should have been a little more impressed.

Those trans fats just weren't unhealthy enough.

I want some.

I gotta make some of these. I don't really think I need to live 61 whole years.

ParisParamus; who the hell is Proust and what does he know about good eats? Is he a chef in some European overated spot or what?

A place in the food court at the local mall sells deep friend twinkies and Mars bars, but I have always been afraid to try them in case I just have a heart attack on the spot. One day, curiousity will get the better of me, I am sure. I have heard that they are tasty.

heh, konolia, do I detect the beginnings of cookeryfilter?

Much as I love fried food, this does not look appealing to me in the least. But I like the wackiness of the concept, fun post.

Deep fried twinkies are like regular twinkies, but with a tasty crunchy shell. It's worth it to try them.

The original recipe told me to preheat the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. But honestly, do people actually measure the temperature of their cooking oil?? Do these culinary nerds actually exist?

Metafilter: cold fried Oreos suck! (Tak sedap kalau dah sejuk!)

Okay, so I couldn't resist. Su Mi.

This is just wrong on so many levels....

And so greasy on all levels.

Now that we know how to make deep fried oreos, would someone please post a link explaining why this would ever be a good idea?
