Deep-Fried Cereal Will Start Your Morning Off Deliciously Wrong

Posted by Adriana Velez on June 19, 2012 at 3:36 PM

deep-fried cereal

As sugary breakfast cereals go, Trix and Cinnamon Toast Crunch are probably at the top of the "fun" heap. But you know what they're both missing? A big, thick layer of deep-fried dough, that's what. Introducing Totally Fried Cereal, the invention of deep-fried-foods master "Chicken" Charlie Boghosian. Breakfast of Champions, my friends!

Charlie is debuting his deep-fried cereal at this year's San Diego County Fair. Last year his great masterpiece was deep-fried Kool-Aid, one of the greatest food inventions in culinary history. Not really. But he sold 1.1 million of them. Think he can sell as many of these new deep-fried cereal bars?

Somewhere out there Dr. Oz is fainting.

Anyway, as you'll see in the video below Charlie actually deep-fries cereal bars instead of loose cereal. I don't know ... This is neat, I guess. But it's not the exciting feat of last year's Kool-Aid balls. You bite into those and you get this lava flow of tangy Kool-Aid. Chicken Charlie does a deep-fried Klondike bar, too, which must be amazing: Under the batter there's still-frozen ice cream.

With the fried cereal, isn't it just more of the same crunchy/sweet texture? I think the deep-fried foods trick works better when there's more of a contrast between the fried batter and what's inside. Maybe Charlie is just having an off year. Charlie, may the gods of deep-fried inspiration be with you next year!

I'm not a fan of most of the deep fried treats.  And I really wouldn't like the deep fried cereal.

There's a restaurant in town that stuffs huge dill pickles with ham or salami and cheese, then dips them in a beer batter and deep fries them.  I'd LOVE to try one of those!  Other than that, I'm not a big fan of deep fried foods...except beer battered onion rings.

This doesn't sound appealing to me.

You would think that with a sealing beer batter coating, pickles would explode when deep fried. I've had that happen with other foods before.

I've already tried it, but deep fried cauliflower is AMAZING.

 I grew up going to fairs and rodeos so I have tried ALOT of  deep fried stuff. my three favs are ice cream, asparagas, and oreo cookies. With all of the dietary changes we have made in the last 5 years I haven't had any of them in ages, but I did love them back then.
