Deep Fried Ice Cream, USA


Where else but in the good old US of A would you find deep-fried ice cream? Made by quickly dunking fresh ice cream in bubbling oil, this extreme dessert has actually been around since the 19th century – though no one is sure if it was created during the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, or in Philadelphia in 1894. Chi-Chi’s Mexican Restaurant, a global chain that no longer operates in the USA, is perhaps the most famous purveyor of fried ice cream – Chi Chi’s is considered by many foodies to be the best ever crafted.
