Oh, good, it's state fair fried food season. A new contender for the craziest fried thing: the Iowa State Fair's fried butter on a stick. Fried butter itself is nothing new — it debuted at the State Fair of Texas in 2009, and Paula Deen has her infamous fried butter balls. But this is a whole stick of butter on a stick dipped in a cinnamon honey batter and deep-fried. And then coated in a sugary glaze. It costs four dollars.
Eater.com also has a video of a news reporter eating the deep-fried butter on a stick. Watching it made me gag.
