DEEP FRIED BALLS (an ongoing series)

What’s delicious and round that I’d love to put in my mouth in July? It’s none other than Deep-Fried Kool-Aid Balls!!  These nuggets of nourishment-ish debuted at this year’s San Diego County Fair courtesy of Charlie Boghosian. Essentially he combined batter with the classic Kool-Aid powder mix and then deep fried the suckers. Those who have tried ‘em swear they taste like jelly doughnut holes. A pack of these piping hot balls goes for a Kool 6 bucks! 



Great balls of breaded blush!

  12. I don't like kool-aid. I also don't like sweets. This just isn't the product for me.

  14. I'm still blushing Jesse. Thank you. My mother used to make deep fried doughnut balls and roll them in powdered sugar and it would melt to a glaze. OMG they were so good. So bad but soooo good!!!! That's what this reminds me of.
