Fried Kool-Aid, ice cream burger on fair menu

INDIANAPOLIS — Visitors to this year's Indiana State Fair can have their drink — and eat it too.

Deep-fried Kool-Aid is one of the new foods being offered at this year's event by concessionaires Dennis and Cheryl Reas of Corydon.

The Reases tell The Indianapolis Star the concoction looks like a red hush puppy but tastes like the powdered drink.

The couple also will offer a sandwich featuring a chicken breast coated in cereal between two frozen waffles and an ice cream burger that has a cheeseburger adorned with Mexican ice cream along with traditional toppings like pickles and onion.

The Reas hope to build on last year's sales of a doughnut burger that combined beef patties with fried dough.

This year's fair runs from Aug. 5-21 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
