Sounds like fried dough with coke syrup on it. I'd want to taste it but it doesn't sound really appealing.

Actually Coke can be used for cooking, although I know nothing about the fried Coke thing other than a what I learned on a quick Google.

Enjoy taking a ham steak, or particularly the cured pork chops one can find at Walmart, cooking and setting aside.

Will then deglaze with Coke (the real stuff) and reduce a bit. Then I pour it over the ham after putting some caramelized onions on top.

With a couple of fried eggs, some hash browns and a bit of fruit on the plate and that is a breakfast.

Urp.

My son tried it. He said it was okay with the whipped cream but then left a bad taste in his mouth. I didn't make it to the fair this year.

I saw people eating it but I never tried it. I would rather use up calories on things I know I like.
