Fried gum is as 'light as a feather'

FRIED bubblegum recently won Most Creative dish at Texas State Fair's 2011 Seventh Annual Big Tex Choice fried food award.

Those judging the competition described it as "a light-as-a-feather bubblegum-flavored marshmallow dipped in batter, lightly fried, decorated with a swirl of icing, and sprinkled with powdered sugar".

You can find this messy concoction, submitted by concessionaire Justin Martinez, at Granny's Funnel Cakes on Coliseum Drive at the Texas State Fair in Dallas.
