Deep Fried Pumpkin Spice Lattes — Yes, You Read That Correctly!

Just when you thought the pumpkin spice latte couldn’t get any more delicious (or calorie-filled!), one blogger went and deep-fried it.

Amy of the blog Oh Bite It! Has a track record of taking delicious drinks (Guinness and tequila shots, for example) and turning them into crispy, deep-fried treats.

How does she do it? It’s not some form of complicated molecular gastronomy (although we’d be totally into that): She just uses store-bought pound cake or angel food cake. Genius!

Think of it like making deep-fried French toast bites, but instead of dipping bread in an egg batter, you’re dipping cake into your PSL. If you wanted a slightly healthier version, you could cook it in a skillet or on a griddle, but where’s the fun in that?

Now we can’t stop thinking about which of our other favorite drinks could be “deep fried.” Here’s to hoping spiked mulled cider, peppermint lattes, and even mulled wine get their due later this year.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

dman6015 , I’m gonna kinda laugh, (not really; death is sad), when you keel over at 60 after a life of vaganism and running marathons. Everything in moderation, my friend!
