Behold... Disney's New Deep-Fried Bananas

February 22, 2016, 10:09 PM · Disneyland has been promoting the new Disney film Zootopia with a preview in the A Bug's Life theater, and now the park is offering a Zootopia-themed snack at the Award Wieners stand in Disney California Adventure — deep-fried bananas.

The Zootopia Banana Corn Dogs are two bananas on sticks, dipped in a honey corn batter, fried, then dusted with powdered sugar. The fried bananas come with chocolate and raspberry dipping sauces and cost $5.99 plus tax. The bananas will be available until March 18.

I've gotta ask — how have we not had deep-fried bananas on a stick until now? Disney's long been known for is chocolate-covered frozen bananas. ("Caution is advised. Items are hard frozen.") So why not take that in another (temperature) direction? In addition to Disneyland's famous corn dogs, Disney also serves up fried hot links and fried cheddar cheese on a stick. Fried bananas seem a logical next step.

What should Disneyland impale on a stick and fry next, after these bananas? And what's your favorite deep-fried snack from another park?

February 23, 2016 at 11:22 AM · Funny Disney is adding these because that is my nickname -
Deep-Fried Bananas..
Served with a side of sarcasm of course.

Battered apple fries from Legoland are awesome!

February 23, 2016 at 7:07 PM · This article is bothering me- whenever I open up TPI the first thing I see is the image of the deep fried bananas, which makes me depressed that I have to wait 3 weeks until I can eat of of these
February 23, 2016 at 9:18 PM · To the comment that "Disneyland is not a state fair!"

Well, not anymore... ;^)

February 23, 2016 at 9:28 PM · Last time I checked, the State Fair also serves popcorn and soda, I suppose we should get rid of those too.
February 23, 2016 at 10:44 PM · I predict this will be a new classic.
