The State Fair of Texas likes to take food that is delicious on its own and give it a deep fried improvement.

Well they are at it again this time they are frying up the Girl Scout cookie favorite, Samoas.

Christi Erpillo’s family has served deep-fried items at the Dallas fair for 40 years. She says the Samoa is her all-time favorite cookie and she’s found a way to drop the classic into a deep fryer without getting it soggy and without losing its taste.

The cookie is intended to help the Girl Scouts celebrate their 100th anniversary.

Erpillo’s mother introduced funnel cake to the fair in the 1980s. In 2009, Erpillo made a splash with deep-fried peaches and cream.

The State Fair of Texas opens on September 28th.
