Taking top honors at the State Fair's annual Big Tex Choice Awards, Deep Fried Bubblegum is a bubble gum flavored marshmallow fried to a crisp and topped with a curlicue of icing. Frankly, bubble gum flavored anything sounds disgusting outside of it's original form; one thing I can get behind, however is a deep fried marshmallow and I know just where to find one. Fort Worth based food truck Sassy Hot Dogs has been frying up their own version for over a year now sans bubble gum flavoring. They take the classic marshmallow, deep fry it and roll it in crystallized sugar topped with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Getting into their hometown spirit, they also come coated in purple sugar and those are dubbed the "TCU Toadstools"
So, if you can't wait until the State Fair of Texas to try a fried marshmallow, find Sassy Hot Dogs at 9621 South Freeway in Ft. Worth. They may not have gotten the love from Big Tex, but make sure and let owner Garland Geeslin know how much you like their version!
