While the U.S isn’t the only country that loves deep fried treats (I’m looking at you Scotland), deep fried Oreos are very American. In the Northeast they’re almost as ubiquitous at street festivals as zeppoles, funnel cakes and sausage and peppers.
These golden brown treats were 6 for $5 down at the Memorial Weekend festival at Bradley Beach on the Jersey Shore. The soft, chewy texture provides a wonderful contrast to the inevitably gooey oreo inside. I need to eat them roughly once a year. What are your go to festival foods? What are the highlights of your area’s street festivals / state fairs?
