This year at the Sixth Annual Big Tex Choice Awards competition in Texas someone finally got it right. Mark Zable has spent the last 3 years perfecting his masterpiece, Fried Beer. A pretzel pocket shaped like a ravioli is filled with beer and then fried. One you take a bite the beer flows out and creates a sort of dipping sauce for the rest of your fried pretzel. Zable's creation is one of 8 finalists in the competition. We're pretty sure that even though Fried Lemonade and Texas Fried Caviar sound interesting, they aren't going to top Fried Beer.

Cookie Dough Pops
Patricia at the blog Brownies for Dinner knows the way to our heart. Cookie dough and things on a stick are two of our favorites. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, frozen, covered in chocolate, on a stick. Whats not to like? The best part about this recipe is that it is egg-free. No salmonella in these puppies!
