|Are you ready for deep fried Slimfast?|
Mid-July can only mean one thing: Fair season! And what better way to kick things off than with the gregarious ways of Charlie Boghosian (a.k.a Chicken Charlie). While you may know him best for deep fried deliciousness, I'm gonna level with you. Some of his tastiest items aren't even fried. The chicken kebobs and hummus plate is amazeballs, and there's something about a teriyaki chicken bowl served in half a pineapple that sings to me. But without further ado, we give you Charlie.
What is your favorite deep fried item to eat? And what is your least favorite?
My favorite to eat is deep fried Oreos. It was my first invention, and it's amazing. When you dip it in pancake batter and you fry it, the cookie gets chewy and gooey, kind of like a hot fudge brownie sundae. The combination of the pancake and that cookie is just phenomenal. It's one of those things you just have to eat to see.
My least favorite item-- One time I invented the Kookie Cookie sandwich: two chocolate chip cookies with cream cheese and raspberry sauce. It wasn't deep fried, and maybe that was the problem.
