According to [url=http://www.avclub.com/articles/wackipedia-a-comprehensive-list-of-the-worlds-frie%2C98803/]THE A.V. CLUB[/url] website, Wikipedia has a [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fried_dough_foods] single page[/url] showing most of the world's fried food dishes (a good kickstarter for ideas for this season's fairground food sensations).

By way of explanation, A.V. Club says "People in Texas will deep-fry literally anything, as evidenced by fried Coke, invented in 2006. Coca-Cola syrup—not the drink, just the thick corn syrup slurry it's made from—is mixed into the batter before frying, and the result is topped with yet more Coke syrup. You may never have drank an ice-cold refreshing Coke and said to yourself, "I wish this were neither ice-cold or refreshing, but instead came in the form of fried dough," but if you haven't, that just means you're not from Texas."
