Fried Coke is frozen Coca-Cola-flavored batter that is deep-fried and then topped with Coca-Cola syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, and a cherry. It was introduced by inventor Abel Gonzales, Jr., a 36-year-old computer analyst from Texas, at the 2006 State Fair of Texas. The concoction won the title of ‘Most Creative’ in the second annual judged competition among food vendors.

It proved very popular in Texas, selling 10,000 cups in the first two weeks. It quickly spread to other states, appearing in at least 47 state fairs in 2007. In 2009, Fried Coke was featured on the Travel Channel’s ‘Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.’ Fried Coke is estimated to have 830 Calories per cup. Since its introduction in 2006, several variations have appeared, using different types of soda and different toppings.
