In today’s Disease-Proof Blog, writes in a sad and amazed tone about the American love affair with fried food:
America is obsessed with fried food! And you don’t need to be a health expert to see it. Fried and deep-fried foods are all around us, from French fries to deep-fried Twinkies, Oreos, and Coca-Cola—like drinking it isn’t bad enough. Yes America, we’ve got a frying fetish!
Never is it more evident than at local carnivals and state fairs.
Well, your intrepid FitFam blogger has done the unthinkable: I went undercover to the North Carolina State Fair last month, and managed to capture these exclusive photos of ACTUAL signs advertising ACTUAL fried foods that I could smell, see, and get that tickling feeling in the back of my throat that preceeds an urgent need to vomit.
I’m no Morgan Spurlock, willing to actually put it into my body, but I still think it took a lot of intestinal fortitude (literally!) to take these pictures. Gerald, please sit down before viewing…

I personally think the Fried Pina Colada Kabob wins big points for originality
I took this photo to highlight the Deep-Fried Coca-Cola, although the Twinkies also deserve a place of honor.
