Justin Martinez came up with the idea to dip marshmallows in a bubblegum extract and then covering it in bubblegum flavored dough before going into the fryer. The treat is then garnished with blue frosting. Martinez’s deep fried bubblegum won for Most Creative at the seventh annual Big Tex Choice Awards at the State Fair of Texas.
This novelty will join the league of “thing I can find in my pantry and throw it in a deep fryer” at the Texas State Fair next month. Definitely something worth trying, but I’ll draw the line at deep fried butter.
