Foodies, don't forget to check out the sweet new treat -- deep-fried butter -- if you are going to the State Fair of Texas later this month.
The dish's creator, 39-year-old Abel Gonzales Jr, a former computer analyst and the winner of last year's competition for his impressive fried recipes including Fried Coke, apparently has his own view on how to make yummy butter.
"Butter by itself doesn't taste good. Nobody just grabs a stick of butter and eats it. That would be gross," he told MSNBC.
So here is what he does -- he whips pure butter till it's light and fluffy, freezes it, surrounds it with dough and puts the dough balls into a deep fryer.
"It tastes great," said Sue Gooding, spokeswoman for the State Fair of Texas, adding it's like "a hot roll with butter."
While Gonzales said the best way to describe it is "a mix between a biscuit or a croissant that is just stuffed to the gills with butter on the inside."
He also offers three flavored butters -- garlic, cherry and grape -- for a special time.
However, a food contest doesn't guarantee healthy foods. These butter balls, for example, could cause heart attacks if they are taken as a regular diet.
"Take it in moderation. Definitely get your exercise. Eat a salad," Gozales suggested.
The fair will be held in Fair Park, Dallas from Sep 25 to Oct 18.
