Deep-Fried Kool-Aid

Once you’ve tried every kind of food imaginable deep-fried or on a stick, what’s new for the county and state fairs this year? Deep-Fried Kool-Aid, of course! Creator “Chicken” Charlie Boghosian isn’t sharing the exact recipe, but it involves flour and Kool-Aid powder. And a deep-fryer. And possibly sugar.

Chicken Charlie’s is a staple of fried rations at fairs across the country. It sold 400 to 600 orders of deep-fried Kool-Aid per day the first weekend of the San Diego County Fair. That’s about double the rate of previous debut items, Boghosian said.

“That’s because it tastes so darn good,” Boghosian said of the Kool-Aid.
