Deep-fried bubble gum!!

/ by

Crazy Fried Things, a vendor at the state fair in New Jersey is deep frying ordinary pink bubblegum (and gummy bears)!!

For two bucks, you can get chewing gum…

wrapped in batter, deep fried, and covered in powdered sugar.

Does this mean it’s ok to swallow your gum??

    How naive I am thinking that the Texas State Fair has the worst fried foods.

    1. It can be assumed that deep frying gives the chewing gum a property to dissolve successfully in the stomach. 2. It just a way of masking – for those who are really very want to swallow the gum (but want to do it secretly). 3. Either the philosophical meaning is to conclude the unedible object in the edible object ….4. Or maybe we just need to eat the outer layer, and then use the chewing gum the usual way … 5. Interesting. Thank you, Pee-wee!

    I don’t know if it would be okay to swallow your gum, if it is deep fried.
    Speaking of swallowing gum, I swallowed a piece when I was 7. (That’s before I knew it was bad to do so).
