We spent almost a week in Las Vegas in the beginning of March. We’ll have more reviews of everything Vegas soon, but the one thing, the absolute most delicious thing, was the fried Twinkies we had at the Mermaids Casino on Fremont Street.
The Fried Twinkies will set you back 99 cents, but they are well worth it. You stand in a line at the back of the casino to order. After ordering you can watch the Twinkie prepared as so:
- Pull refrigarted Twinkie with an inserted wood stick from cooler.
- Slather funnel cake batter on Twinkie.
- Dunk in fryer.
- Pull out and shake off excess grease.
- Place in carton.
- Shake on powdered sugar and sprinkle on jimmies.
You have to let it cool a little, but when you bite into it you’ll see that the creamy center of the Twinkie is well preserved.
Let me give you some advice … order two.
