Street fairs and carnivals are infamous for their deep fried oreos and snickers bar, fried dough, and along with other fried and sugar-coated, indulgent treats. And now there’s the “Twinx,” which was a popular item at the Great New York State Fair in Syracuse, New York, this past weekend.
The Twinx was created by James Hasbrouck, who runs the food truck, Fried Specialties. It starts with a Twinkie. The spongy cake is stuffed with a Twix candy bar and wrapped in bacon. It is then coated in batter and deep fried. It is just under 1,000 calories and sells for $7 at the food truck.
