Indy Made the New York Times, Again!

"Yes, They Deep-Fry Oreos, but Not in Trans Fats," says the headline on Monica Davey's feature on the just-concluded Indiana State Fair.

"The deep-fried Combo Plate may be a little more healthful this year at the Great Indiana State Fair. So say the fair’s leaders, who, taking a step rarely seen in the realm of corn dogs and fried pickles, have banned oils with trans fats from all the fryers that line the grounds here."
"'This is a slice of heaven,' said Ryan Howell, 31, as he cradled his Combo Plate, which, for the record, consists of one battered Snickers bar, two battered Oreos and a battered Reese's Peanut Butter Cup — all deep-fried in oil that is trans-fat free, thank goodness."
