"The hunt for new foods to fry is on! We begin our tour of the fried wonders of the world in Graceland, where you can still order one of Elvis Presley's favorite dishes: fried pickles. Next, in Thailand, crunchy fried insects should set you slavering. But if they don't, move on to the battered Mars bar of Scotland. And we can't forget you armchair travelers. Some goodies, like deep-fried Twinkies and Snickers, are still as close as the county fair. Sure, oily Oreos have caught on in Indonesia, but you don't have to trot the globe to sate your fried cravings. You can find many delicacies at the State Fair of Texas, including cheesecake, ice cream, cheese curds, and alligator. Yee-haw!"
