At county fairs, just about everything can be deep fried, from a Snickers bar to a stick of butter. But now, the San Diego County Fair has pushed it to a new extreme.

They're introducing deep-fried Kool-Aid. It's the creation of Chicken Charlie's, also known for its deep-fried Oreo and "zucchini weenie."

For Charlie Boghosian's latest creation, he mixes Kool-Aid with batter, dips it in the fryer and tops it with cherry-flavored powdered sugar.

"Growing up, I was a big fan of Kool-Aid, we drank Kool-Aid growing up, so I thought, 'Why not fry it?'" Boghosian said.

If fried Kool-Aid is too much, Chicken Charlie's also offers fried brownies and fried Girl Scout cookies.

The San Diego County Fair ends on July 4.
