Fried Kool-Aid, ice cream burger on fair menu

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - 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 say 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 Reases 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.
