Welcome to Fantasy Food Friday where I talk about food that I fantasize about but shouldn't necessarily be eating. In tonight's edition these foods are a big, big "no, no", but they are what I fantasize about all year long. Then I wait until our town's local fourth of July celebration to fulfill my fantasies.
Well, after doing some research on the world wide web tonight...I now have a more accurate picture of just how calorie laden my fantasy foods are.
Before I looked online, I thought Tom Thumb donuts was a local secret. I was completely wrong on that perception. Here is what a typical Tom Thumb donut stand looks like.
I visited their website just for the fun of it, and was entertained by the six little donuts that followed the movements of my mouse throughout the visit. You should try it. Not a single calorie in it. Ha, Ha!!
Anyway, here's part of the process of making these donuts. They do it right in front of you.
There are 16 donuts to a bag, which if I recall costs about $4. You can get more bags in which case the price gets reduced.
Oh, and I found out the calorie content of a little bag...
500 calories. For some reason I was expecting more.
Maybe I could buy a bag and have two and give each of our family members two.
That almost takes care of the entire bag.
But I don't eat them just plain like this.
That is absolutely no fun.
My favorite is the cherry topping.
So...how many calories do you think one of these bad boys are?
Well, with it plain, it's around 760 calories.
So, about 900 calories?
So, yah...that's nice to know now before going down to the fest grounds this weekend.
I think if I do this, I'll definitely have to split it up with my family.
Good thing I have a large family. Ha! Ha!
So what about you all?
Is it the fried fest foods you like or is it something else?
And I have to know, has anyone tried any unusual deep fried fest foods?
Well, on that note, I'm so glad it's July 4th weekend.
I hope you all relax and enjoy yourself!
