Deep Fried Gummy Bears
Today we head to the State Fairs to look at another delicacy that originated from these and it is not one that you would normally think of. Deep Fried Gummy Bears were an item that was founded at the Oklahoma State Fair.
The delicacy was Gummy Bears stuck on a stick and deep fried in batter, to top off the sweet to make it that much more indulgent it is then covered in powdered sugar and strawberry sauce. The gummy bear is also not your average sized teddy and is a lot bigger then you are used to. If you wanted to purchase one of these treats on a stick they would cost you $7. There are many reviews of Deep Fried Gummy Bears online with one of them saying that is tastes like Cherry pie.
