Anyone Heard of "Fried Coke"?

No, not like your brain on drugs LOL.

I was just watching a segment on NBC. The chef's name (I think they said his name was Alex Gonzalez, from Texas) was preparing a "fried coke" desert. Yes, you got that right. Fried coke.

Apparently it's small, coke flavored dough balls which he deep fries, powders with confectioner's sugar, puts in a coke glass and tops with whipped cream (of course). Maybe there was some coke syrup too. They looked like small zeppoles.

I don't know - this sounds kind of unappealing to me personally, although maybe I'm being too harsh. I did recently taste a cake made with 7-Up of all things that was surprisingly tasty, so, who knows?
