    Fried Kool-Aid a hit at fair, Chicken Charlie says


    By Jonathan Horn , UNION-TRIBUNE Tuesday, June 14, 2011 at 3:33 p.m.

    An order of deep-fried Kool Aid Tuesday at the San Diego County Fair.



    DEL MAR The deep-fried Kool-Aid is selling like deep-fried hot cakes, according to their famed creator, "Chicken" Charlie Boghosian.

    Chicken Charlie's is a staple of fried rations at fairs across the country. It sold 400 to 600 orders of deep-fried Kool-Aid per day the first weekend of the San Diego County Fair. That's about double the rate of previous debut items, Boghosian said.
    "That's because it tastes so darn good," Boghosian said of the Kool-Aid.
    The deep-fried novelty takes the shape of a doughnut-hole.

    There are five per order. That breaks down to as much as 9,000 balls of deep-fried Kool-Aid eaten over opening weekend.

    Boghosian said Chicken Charlie's has already gone through 150 pounds of Kool-Aid powder and 1,500 pounds of flour. Chicken Charlie's debuted deep-fried Klondike Bars and Pop Tarts in past years.

    Fairgoers on Tuesday were also buying up the deep-fried Kool-Aid.
    "It starts off tart and tangy, and then finishes really sweet... I love this stuff," said Seth Baldwin of Vista.

    "It tastes just like a doughnut ball," said Rashed Karram, who said he prefers the deep-fried Klondike Bars.

    Chicken Charlie's still sells the Klondike Bars, as well as deep-fried thin mints and even frog legs.

    "I don't know if I have the stomach for that," Karram said of the frog legs.

    ^^I was watching an episode of "Chopped" on Food Network; when one of the contestants decided to fry one of her ingredients, she said "I'm from Kentucky, our motto is 'When in doubt, fry it'."

    we were there yesterday. Normally i try all this crap, but it just didn't look appetizing...at all. I've tried the deep fried butter before, and it was different.

    the price for the Koolaid was 5.95

    Ewwww, that sounds gross!

    We went to the State Fair w/ some friends last summer, and they tried the deep-fried snickers bar, and the deep-fried twinkies. They said they were good, but I just couldn't do it

    I've had a Deep-Fried Snickers before. It wasn't THAT bad because the chocolate and caramel get really gooey, but I ran for an hour the next day.

    There is this bar down the street that sells deep fried pickles. It was one of the best things I have put in my mouth. (Besides a big penis.) hehe..
