Chicken Charlie Picks Deep-Fried Cookie Dough For L.A. County Fair

Out of the pan and into the fryer

The L.A. County Fair returns at the end of August and with it, as always, comes the introduction of a few new battered items of junk food by deep-fried aficionado Chicken Charlie. This year, Charlie asked Facebook fans to come up with his next monstrosity, as it certainly must be a challenge designing depraved snacks like deep-fried Kool-Aid and fried Klondike bars. NBC reports that the winner, which will be joining new creations like deep-fried cereal and deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches this year, is deep-fried cookie dough, which actually sort of sounds worth exchanging for a day or two of our old, wobbly years for a single bite.
