By way of the Bacon-A-Fair booth at the San Diego Fair (and fairs up along the coast through the summer), the guys known for wrapping copious amounts of things in bacon have taken a new approach with their flagship fair product this year: Deep Frying Coffee.

Here's what their signage looks like:

We stopped by the Bacon-A-Fair booth and stood clammering at this sign, wondering what Deep Fried Coffee would taste like. Sure enough it comes served out of a Starbucks-branded cup, comes with deep fried balls of ground coffee on a stick and a topping of whipped cream:
