Today at the Alameda County Fair the twins and I shared a deep fried watermelon. Even though I'd skipped lunch, it was past 3:00 pm and I shared with two nine-year-olds, the concoction still filled me up. The watermelon was sweet and juicy, but the main attraction for the boys was the deep fried coating with its sweet red sauce.
The rind was deep fried as well, though I don't think it was meant to be eaten (believe me, I tried). However, the boys managed to eat all of the fried batter around it.
I liked the dessert for its novelty. If I try a deep-fried dessert at a fair again, it would be something else. For example, I found the deep fried Nutella intriguing!
