Ping Pong Balls of Fried Coke Syrup

 - Oct 29, 2006
It may sound odd to you now, but Fried Coke could be the next big innovation in food.  Fried Coke is made from batter, Coca-Cola syrup, strawberry syrup, and some strawberries.  The desert made its debut at the US fairs this fall.  Inventor Abel Gonzales ran two stands at the State Fair in Texas and sold 35,000 fried cokes in just over three weeks.  The price - $4.50 each.  Gonzales has already won awards for developing the most innovative new fair food.

A Coca-Cola spokesperson, Ray Crockett, told Reuters, "We’re constantly amazed at the creative ways folks find to enjoy their Coke and make it part of celebrations like fairs and festivals. This is one is definitely different!"

Any takers on this one?
