    It`s actually quite delicious and a rip-off of deep fried butter which debuted at last years Texas state fair.

    That......is disgusting. I just threw up a little in my mouth, and I am sure it tastes better (and is more nutritious) than that. Now fried butter and cheese? mmmmmmmmmmmm

    "This is why you`re fat"

    I can`t argue that these would be horrible for anyone to consume but... sorry to spoil the meme but the people eating them were not fat, they were skinny.

    "but the people eating them were not fat, they were skinny"

    You mean the small child and the reporter? All two they showed? The guy that ran the place look like he tried one or 20 ;)

    I`d try it- I`m glad it`s not just a stick of butter inside and most of it leaks out, but I`d share it with someone .___.

    @BiGpHiL- Just to be clear... not all Americans deep fry their turkeys... or butter for that matter. This looks and sounds utterly disgusting.

    This is butter on a stick, not lard on a stick.

    There are Canadians that deep fry turkeys, and when was the last time you looked at the food they serve at the CNE? Basically the same concept.

    This is not an American creation, but a French one, from the days of `grande cuisine` from the mid 1800`s. From Larousse Gasronomique:

    "Buerre A La Broche- A preparation which used to be in vogue in years gone by but which is not done nowadays.
    It was made in the following manner: Soften 1 pound of butter to a malleable paste. add to it some chervil, tarragon, and chives and some lemon juice. Season and shape into a ballottine.
    Put on a wooden spit and chill thoroughly in an ice-box.
    When the block of butter is quite hard, coat it with three layers of breadcrumbs in such a way as to enclose it entirely in a thick coating of breadcrumbs.
    Put the butter before a very lively fire. Sprinkle it with melted butter. Cook from 8 to 10 minutes until the outside crust acquires a good colour. Serve at once.
    Butter on a spit is not really a dish. It is simply an original way of serving melted butter with poached fish or a boiled vegetable."

    Hard oil on the inside, liquid oil on the outside. It`s not actually all that bad (compared to deep fried food in general).
