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.
Apparently Mr. Gonzales whips butter to light creamery fluffiness, freezes it, and surrounds it with shell of dough. 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.”
