I played good host and took some family friends to the CNE over the weekend. I mainly agreed so that I could check out the food, especially the deep-fried items that have gotten a lot of press lately. Although I was slightly tempted to try a bunch of them (uh, deep-fried twix bar?), I only ate one: deep-fried butter. It sounds pretty gross and for $5 for 4, they were also pricey, but I had to do it. Verdict? Tasted like a pancake ball with some warm butter stuffed inside. It didn't seem like a lot of butter, I was kinda disappointed.
