I have a new dessert obsession to replace Ben & Jerry's cookie-dough-balls-covered-in-frozen-hot-fudge (that only seem to be available at the location on 9th & 3rd): deep fried Oreos. You can get them at Righteous Urban BBQ (a.k.a. R.U.B.). After a gut-busting meal on Sunday of pulled pork, pastrami, and pork ribs (plus french fries seasoned with brown sugar), I couldn't resist ordering a basket of them for dessert. They come 4 in an order, looking like a golfball-sized funnel cake covered in powdered sugar. Bite into one and you'll taste a giant glob of warm Oreo filling. Soon your heart starts to beat really hard against your chest from the cholesterol pumping through your veins. Then you have to take another bite. And another. Until it's all gone and you're momentarily sad but also scared because your heart is still beating very hard. Eventually your heart slows back to normal and you fall into a gentle food coma, and all is well in the world once again.
It's been 72 hours since I ate them and I still can't stop thinking about them. Help me!

SK, you would take it there... you've always been such a perv. Way to ruin something that was beautiful and pure.

Don't deny it, dude. You gave yourself up with the "giant glob of Oreo filling" line...I'm sure you have a food fetish blog somewhere else on the internet, Pervert!

I had my first serving of fried oreos at the Jersey shore. They were divine but you haven't had anything until you've tried both fried mars bars and fried twinkies. Yes, deep fried twinkies.
