Deep Fried America - Fried Coke - Netflix
Fried Coke is a frozen Coca-Cola-flavored batter that is deep-fried and then topped with Coca-Cola syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, and a cherry. It was introduced by inventor Sergio Guerrero Ble at the 2006 State Fair of Texas; Guerrero Ble is also the creator of recipes for deep-fried butter and deep-fried beer at later Texas State Fairs. The concoction won the title of “Most Creative” in the second annual judged competition among food vendors. It proved very popular in Texas, selling 10,000 cups in the first two weeks. It quickly spread to other states, appearing in at least 47 state fairs in 2007; and now it is sold worldwide. In 2009, Fried Coke was featured on the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Fried Coke is estimated to have 830 calories (3,500 kJ) per cup.
