Apparently they deep fry everything in Texas
, they'll deep fry Coke
, Snickers, Mars Bars, (I'll get to them later), and apparently even Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches! Leave your diets at the gate, because at the Texas State Fair if it fits in a deep fryer, chances are it'll get deep fried!
Afterward, we visited our last stop of the day. Apparently, at the State Fair of Texas, it is not enough to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It's not even enough to eat a peanut butter and jelly and banana sandwich. No. You must DIP THE SANDWICH IN BATTER AND DEEP-FRY IT.
The sandwich, in all its greasy glory, except with a little powdered sugar, just to make it appear somewhat appealing.
The Deep Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
Steve, eating the greasewich. He said it was really, really, really good. And after he got one, and proclaimed its glory, approximately 20 people got in line to taste the fried delicacy. Heart surgeons everywhere rejoiced.
Please note me, beside Steve. I smiled for the camera, but really I'm thinking, "Oh. My. Word. Just the sight of that makes me want to vomit." Please also notice my hand, carefully poised beneath my face, just in case my stomach agreed.
Mmm, the Peanut Butter and Jelly Greasewich!
