Texas State Fair vendor Abel Gonzales is responsible for many…interesting food creations. Texas Fried Cookie Dough, deep fried PB&J with bananas, and even Fried Coke. Now Mr. Gonzales is hitting the scene with Deep Fried Butter.

And it’s not just butter flavored- that would be preposterous- Deep Fried Butter is available in garlic, grape or cherry flavor.

While it sounds disgusting, customers say it takes not too unlike a buttered roll. Gonzales says:

“It’s like a mix between a biscuit or a croissant that is just stuffed to the gills with butter on the inside.”

With all the anti-fat naysayers, Gonzales has his share of detractors. But he’s not bothered by the backlash:

“These are special foods for a special time,” he said.

“There are a lot of people out there that don’t get the fun in what I’m doing. I’ve gotten e-mails from people saying, ‘You’re a menace!’”

“I tell people this is not healthy food. Be careful with it. Take it in moderation. Definitely get your exercise. Eat a salad.”
