First came deep-fried chicken, then ice cream and now deep-fried cereal. Hitting a whole new level of artery-clogging creativity, the breakfast cereal is a particularly interesting find. Debuting at the San Diego County Fair, the 'Chicken' vendor Charlie Boghosian made his big deep-fried cereal unveiling to the general public. The Trix and Cinnamon Toast Crunch creations are only the beginning of his 'Totally Fried Cereal' collection.

In an age of health-conscious eating, carnivals and fairs are a place where people go to indulge in deep-fried marsbars, elephant ears and now deep-fried breakfast goods. The actual cereal balls are coated with fried breads and molded into a kind of cereal pouch that contains your cereal brand of choice, which gets thrown into the deep fryer to satisfy any and all fatty cravings.
