lemme tell you, those things were the best amusement park snack food ive ever had! has anyone tried these?

PS: The Lake, is Lake Compounce if ya didnt know.

Mmm, I've been looking for these at various fairs and carnivals, but never found them. I usually have to be content with fried pickles (not that those are bad!).

Fried pickles are excellent.

Fried oreos have been appearing at several parks -- Kennywood and Holiday World come to mind. They're ok, but I prefer plain old funnelcake.

Every year at the York Fair (York PA) one of our "must do's" are the fried Oreo's. (the other "must do" is the following day go to the hospital and have a cholestrol screening after eating these things.)

I love those things! I'm so glad Kennywood got them. They are the fastest and best snack in the park!

Den - You'll need to drink a whole bunch of Diet Coke after eating some fried Oreos!

They're at the Funnel Cake Factory, located next to the Virginia Whirl (tilt-a-whirl).

Enjoy your visit! Paula

Hmmm, some lawyer will be suing over those fried Oreos pretty soon. Do you get a nurse or doctor with your Oreo? Sounds like an instant heart blockage to me.

And everything else at Holiday World their Fried Oreos are grandeous. I loved them....though I am sure my weight factor did not. Down 30-40 lbs since eatin them things. ;) That is following Atkins diet. Sure isnt the oil they fry it in according to Atkins. Must be the sugar and batter and cookie in the Fried Oreo that is just so devilish. No wonder I liked 'em!

The key is moderation. Instead of eating three slices of pizza, two corn dogs, a block of fudge the size of a car battery, and seven fried Oreos, try six fried Oreos instead.

Chewing them thoroughly before swallowing is also helpful.

I haven't been near them. I've seen them at a lot of parks though. Do they really taste much different then regular oreos?

If you want to try a great artery-clogging delight, come up here to Wis-cow-sin and get yourself some deep fried cheese curds. Yuuummmmy!

From artery-clogging fatty meat products to cheese that clogs..well, you know, the other set of pipes right down to the arterial freeway-clogging low speed limits, it's little wonder America's Dairyland is so rich with seat-clogging butts.

And you wonder why parks don't design their rides to accomodate the folks they help to make wider. ;)

A couple of weeks ago at the Huron Water Festival one of the food trailers (grease pits) were serving deep fried Twinkies. Same basic principal as the other stuff, but boy are they good! The twinkie gets real gooey on the inside even some of the cake.
