Last week news broke that the Deep Frying King Pin (yes, that’s what we call this G of the fair food game) Chicken Charlie was going to deep fry something that would make haters’ heads explode: SLIM FAST bars.

That’s right. SLIM FAST bars. For our readers who may be too young to remember, or those that need a refresher, Slim Fast is a brand of diet and weight loss products that includes shakes, snacks, packaged meals and other dietary supplements.

These things are gonna be available everywhere Chicken Charlie is this summer, including stops at the OC Fair and the LA Fair.
