What will they come up with next???
There’s a new dessert treat on the market and it’s called Kool-Aid Balls.
Peep the footage (and details) below:
Calorie counts on virtually every product you can buy, constant warnings about sodium levels and sugar – it’s an age of constant reminders of healthy eating.
America’s latest food craze, however, sets the clock back a thousand years: deep fried Kool-Aid balls.
The drink beloved by generations of Americans now comes in snack form in the shape of crispy little balls that resemble tiny creatures from a Fifties horror B-movie.
The Kool-Aid balls were created by chef Charlie Boghosian who quickly found his diabetes and obesity bombs are a massive hit.
He simply drops spoonfuls of the batter, made up of the famous drink mix, flour and water, into the burning fat, lets it sizzle for a minute and bang, the latest contribution to the culinary arts is born.
The ‘treat’ has been selling like crazy at county fairs throughout the South and after making its first appearance at the San Diego County Fair the snack went viral.
On Sunday, Father’s Day, it was trending massively on Twitter.
At the San Diego fair, he was selling up to 600 orders a day from a mobile vendor, with five balls in an order.
Mr Boghosian describes the taste as being ‘like donut holes.’
So far he has concentrated on cherry flavour, but as millions of children know, there are many other flavours to explore in the future.
Be warned – they maybe coming to a fair near you.
However, the Kool-Aid balls are not Mr Boghosian’s first foray into extreme deep fat frying, Gawker reports.
His previous inventions include deep-fried Klondike bars and deep-fried Thin Mints.
Those Kool-Aid balls look pretty interesting, but sorry … we’ll pass!
