New Fair Food: Fried Butter On A Stick!

The Iowa State Fair has hit a new gluttonous low.

Just when you thought that there was nothing left to fry, a vendor at the Fair has cooked up something new: a fried stick of butter.

Yes, it's been done before (who can forget Paula Deen's Butter Balls?), but according to the Daily Mail, this is the first time a full stick has made its fair debut. (Though fried butter first appeared at the Texas State Fair in 2009.)

Vendors at the fair take an eighth of a pound of butter, cover it in cinnamon and honey and dip it in the fryer. The result is a heart attack-inducing diabetic feast on a stick.
