Is Deep-Fried Cereal Gross or Great?

It seems like every summer, we hear about the latest deep-fried something, whether it’s Twinkies, Oreos or Kool Aid. Well, this summer, it’s … cereal. That's right: deep-fried cereal -- made with Trix and Cinnamon Toast Crunch -- has made its debut at the San Diego fair this month.



The “breakfast” -- or should we call it dessert? -- is drizzled with syrup and topped with a few pieces of cereal. And so far, it’s not exactly a big hit. "Now, when I was trying the deep-fried Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the pool of grease in the bottom of the basket made me clutch my heart a little. The doughy ball of greasy cereal wasn't bad, but it definitely isn't something I'd go out of my way to buy,” one reviewer wrote.

The deep-fried creation du jour comes from Charlie Boghosian, owner of Chicken Charlie’s and creator of last year's deep-fried Kool Aid balls. He also serves deep-fried Girl Scout cookies at his restaurant. We don’t know about you, but we’d say Trix and Cinnamon Toast Crunch are decadent enough as they are, without the extra grease. Do you think deep-fried cereal is gross? Or great?

    Why post questions like these? I mean, you know the answer. Most are going to say gross. Like the question that asked if you would eat a deep-fried pork blood Popsicle. Obviously...no. deep fried pork blood popsicle

    I'm up for most fried foods, but I wouldn't eat that. Not because it's really "gross", just because it looks too dry.

    Deep frying cake? Well normally (since I hate chocolate and cake) I wouldn't care. But when making a healthy dish unhealthy, you've got to stop THERE.

    Deep-fry parties are fuuuun. And in moderation, I'm sure this is good. I mean, deep-fried kool-aid was suprisingly delicious, so why not this?
