Watch any cooking show on the Food Netwok and that's what tbey'll tell you. Can you make things taste nomtastic using seasonings and whatnot? Of course, that's how I cook most of the time, but sometimes, the savory goodness of fat is crucial to a recipe. We need fat to live...just a thought.


I'm a food network junkie and cooking is my hobby...but I don't subscribe to the fat=flavor BS....

Yes fat=flavor...so does brining your meat...does that mean its necessary? No of course not...you can still make delicious meals without brining.

At the risk of sounding like a post-stalker, I agree with everything Misskortney has written.

Take some responsibility for your own actions and don't blame the vendors. We all have the freedom to eat what we want. You don't have to eat it. I eat "bad" foods on occasion and am not obese and also know people who are not obese that eat them, too. I didn't gain weight because someone forced a fried twinkie into my mouth. I gained weight from not practicing portion control and sitting my ass on the couch.

Are you kidding? I wait for the fair. It's the only time I let myself have that kind of crap,......because it's the FAIR!! Deep fried oreos, uffda tacos, cotton candy, those chili dogs that may contain some sort of disease after three days of sitting in a warming vat, but who cares, you'll eat em slathered in relish and onions anyway? Oh...and the beer gardens, yes yes. Does anyone over 18 go to the county fairs for the rides? ITS THE FOOD!! lol. I'm exagerating a bit here, but come on. There's supposed to be nasty crap to eat/drink at the fair, it's all part of the experience. Lighten up and enjoy it.

Just to throw this out there...and maybe I'm wrong since I can't see your diary or progress...

But are you any better? You're here for weight loss right? Why are you judging all of the things other people ate to get here when you are obviously here with us?

I must have missed the part where I actually said that - oh no wait. You were taking it out of context....I get it now.

Let me try and be more precise, in stating that we have grown our children into a societal sense of entitlement & laziness...where a simple pleasure such as art AKA: coloring OR playing outside...is essentially unheard of, and certainly not "good enough".

I can honestly say that fried ice cream is probably the only non-typically fried food item that I have ever eaten. It *is* about self-control, for sure. But, this type of stuff wouldn't be offered if people didn't buy it.


People buy it because it's fun to try every now and then, and usually it's tasty too. These foods, McDonalds, hot wings, beer... those things don't make people fat. Their choices on how to enjoy those foods are what make them fat.

Please don't try to fear-monger and hate on novelty fair foods.


THIS "Please don't try to fear-monger and hate on novelty fair foods." +100!!!

I am really tired of the fear mongering that goes on regarding food. Keep buying into the nanny state people. "oh this is so disgusting..." Whiny ass. Live and let live, stay the F! away from the stuff, and do what you have to do. I personally would love to try it, and I'm sure my kids would too. Fried candy bars are delicious btw. I have a friend who deep fries his own twinkies occasionally, and he's a freaking doctor and has several videos online doing crazy cross fit excersizes. It is possible to have it all people. Seriously, this turned into a dumb rant, but STOP BEING SO SCARED AND JUDGMENTAL!!!!

For the record, I'm disgusted by the fact that they are now deep frying cereal. My point in sharing the link was that obesity is due largely (no pun intended) in part to the disgusting, fat-laden foods that people willingly consume. They wouldn't come up with novelty fair food like this to share if people weren't willing to buy it and eat it. As another member pointed out, there are restuarants that sell this stuff year-round.

It's not just about novelty items or splurging on something once a year. Most people that will eat that stuff don't eat it just once a year at the fair.


You said it... willingly... obesity has nothing to do with the food, it has to do with the amount the person chooses to consume -- it is a choice... lets not forget that there are obese people who do not eat in large amounts or splurge, they are simply not active enough

Same. You don't have to add 5 cups of butter into every recipe like Paula Deen to make things yummy. I cook decent food and besides a few dishes, all the meals I make can be eating by the biggest foodies AND people who're watching what they eat. You just gotta learn the tricks, different cuisines and techniques for this to workout.

Use spices more than dressings. use herbs. You can "hide" veggies into your meals to make it healthier

Not going to lie, I'd try fried cereal if I ever saw it at the fair. I haven't had any fried fair food in a long time. lol

My grandparents said the same thing about me because I learned to use a computer in grade school and wanted to go to a good college rather than work in a weld shop....

I've never had fried whatever other than ice cream, fries, chicken. Not all at once, lol. wth is fried cola and pizza? Yuck. I can't believe people knowingly choose to eat these fried things. :/

How do you know? Have you done studies?

Look - I've never had a deep fried candy bar or any other fair novelty... I became obese because I drank too much, ate too large of portions, and sat on my ass too much. It had nothing to do with what McDonald's was selling, either... the majority of my weight was gained eating wholesome, natural foods that I mostly grew myself. It was the excess of calories in my salad with grilled chicken, and my enormous turkey sandwiches, and the fabulous cheesecake I make from scratch, and all of those frittatas I made for breakfast, and the roast with red potatoes and carrots.... I could go on .... these foods, in excess of my caloric needs are the ones that made me fat. Not fried Fruit Loops.


I said most. You're one person. Clearly you wouldn't fall into the category of "most". My comment was that most people who would eat deep fried stuff at the fair (whatever it is) would most likely eat it all year round.


And you are wrong. I like to split a deep fried oreo with the hubby. And do not indulge in eating such things other than at the fair. I say get over it, it disgusts you...then don't eat it.
June 20, 2012 1:59 PM
Oh geez....and I just had fried pickles last Thursday! ohwell To each his owndrinker Does not mean I will have them every week or even every month...key words here are moderation and self control.bigsmile

Thank you, Captain Obvious. I was talking about the deep frying - ANYTHING - part. Not the fact that a person can buy it at the fair once a year when it moves through town.

So let's get this straight. You say provocative things and throw out links to sensational articles, but when someone calls you on it you get to claim that wasn't what you meant at all and it's just silly to reference the links you were bolstering your claim with. I see.
June 20, 2012 2:06 PM
Yep I had the same thought when I saw that article! Made my stomach turn just thinking about trying to eat it

Tell me. Is that as delicious as it sounds??? Also, would I likely need Pepto Bismol afterwards?

Congress removed the right to sue McDonalds for causing obesity almost a decade ago.
