It’s unnerving how excited I look in this picture! Can you guess why? While I was in Texas, Ronalin and I visited Historic Spring, a charming district in her town lined with old shops and yummy eateries.
Our first objective that day? Tried a Deep South treat in the form of something deep fried. Did you know about the deep fried/ Deep South thing?
This is what we chose. Do you recognize it? It’s a deep fried Oreo cookie. I want to lie and tell you it was disgusting. But it was in fact very, very delicious. The cookie filling was warm and gooey. Squeezing that sucker in between a pillow of deep fried batter was GENIUS.
Eating a deep fried Oreo was definitely a once in a lifetime event for me. I don’t do a lot of deep fried food. I always feel a little sick afterwards. Ronalin and I shared an order of the Oreos. Two for each of us. I had a hard time finishing the second one.
If you think we’re disgusting, it’s okay. I just want you to know we showed major restraint. Look at the rest of the menu:
I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you I’ve been wondering about a deep fried Snickers ever since.
