we do have deep fried mars bars. though they were copied from the UK.

(by the way, i told every single person at a party i went to last night about butter in a spraycan. Every single one pulled a face like... like i'd told them I enjoyed eating deepfried roaches or something... this utter disgust combined with lack of comprehension, sometimes followed by hysterical laughter).

Sorry guys.

Lupin, I am so tempted to see if it will go through customs if I sent you a bottle.  Wink

Mac and cheese on a stick?  That's a new one on me.
Deep fried cheese, actually fresh cheese curds.  Very popular here in Wisconsin, and they are delicious.

Though I allow myself deep-fried cheese curds once a year at the State Fair, fresh cheese curds are awesome. The fresh ones squeak!
I think our State Fair actually has over 40 varieties of "____-on-a-stick." It's a proud tradition. Pickles, wontons, mac'n'cheese, deep-fried Twinkies, etc.

I want to try a deep fried twinkie!   Cheesy 

I am a Native American from NE WA state.  Some of my favorite foods are fry bread, Indian Tacos (just like regular tacos, but with fry bread) and camas (a flower root). 

I also really love anything Huckleberry.   Cheesy Grin

I just got some recipes last month for fry bread, and we have been enjoying the heck out of that.  My favorite has to be when it's covered with butter, powdered sugar, and cinnamon.  Cheesy

I live in Southern CA, but my mom's from KY.  I was raised with Southern food as our main diet - everthing cooked with bacon grease.  Isn't that one of those Redneck jokes? "You know you're a redneck... if you a crock sitting on the stove full of bacon grease."  She even put a dollop of bacon grease in canned green beans.  It's been a long haul to get out of that style of cooking, LOL, though I still love making biscuits & sausage gravy for a nice hearty breakfast. Chicken & dumplings, and homemade macaroni&cheese too.

Now, by deep-fried cheese, I thought you guys were talking about the cheese sticks from Hot Dog on a Stick... not deep-fried cheese curds, *shiver*.  At Hot Dog on a stick, you can have either cheddar or pepper jack cheese, dipped in batter, and then deep-fried.  And at most restaurants, you can get mozerella sticks (which are so good dipped in marinara).

I am not a fan of so-called California cuisine though.  That stuff is just bizarre.  I think I've discovered that most of the food myself and my husband enjoy are considered "peasant foods" - you know... the cheap, easy to make, and probably-not-that-good for you stuff every culture has. We eat some "American" food, a ton of mexican food, and a ton of asian food... with a little bit of Italian or German occassionally tossed in.  All the "mexican" grocery stores here have a tortilleria on premises, so you can buy hot, fresh, tortillas that they make right in front of you.

Now, someone told me that in other countries, you have to ask for ice for things like Coca-Cola, otherwise you get it room temperature? True, or urban legend?

and deep-fried cheese. you deep-fry cheese in some parts of america? yukky.

That's actually not the worst. Wait until you meet the evilest creations in the world:
1- The Deep Fried Oreo
2- Mac and Cheese on a stick

Oh no.  The very worst is the deep-fried twinkie.  *shudder*  Tempura-fried cheesecake, however, is the stuff of the gods (and of coronaries  Roll Eyes).

Urban legend!!! At least over here in the Netherlands and in Europe.  It's true you sometimes don't get ice in your Coke, but it's always chilled, way below room temperature Cheesy
