Just caught a piece on CBS Sunday Morning which had Bill Geist exploring all the varieties of fried foods at the State Fair of Texas. I'm looking for a video link, will post one if I find it. Description of the piece from the CBS Sunday Morning website:

BILL GEIST: Fried at the State Fair of Texas
The State Fair of Texas, where the classic battered and fried “Corny Dog” was invented in 1942, remains the frontier of fried food. Here, vendors compete to see who can create the most egregious violation of dietary law, and artery-clogging creations like fried cookie dough, fried peaches and cream, and fried Coke were tasted and seen for the first time. This year, Abel Gonzales Jr. unveiled his masterpiece - Fried Butter - and quickly became the star of the Fair.

Bill Geist eats his way through the Capital of Deep Fried Food and visits Gonzales, the mad scientist of frying, in his laboratory (his mother’s kitchen), where he’s already at work on his next creation.
