[i]Fried Coke is a new American snack created in 2006. It consists of balls of batter mixed with Coca-Cola syrup, which are fried and then topped with more Coca-Cola syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, and a cherry. It was introduced by inventor Abel Gonzales, Jr., at the 2006 State Fair of Texas, where it won the title of “Most Creative” in the second annual judged competition among food vendors.
It proved very popular in Texas, selling 16,000 cups in the first two weeks, and is now being adopted as a snack by fairs in North Carolina as well as Arizona. It is also very popular in California.
Fried Coke is estimated to have 830 calories (3.5KJ).[/i]
