About This Quiz

The culinary world can be so cruel. Fried food is far and away the most delicious kind of food ever, and yet, at the same time, it's also the most unhealthy. Loaded with fat, sugar, salt and cholesterol, there's barely anything good about fried food beyond the taste. And the taste really makes up for it all. All of it and more. It's so good!

Fried food is so good it's actually been around since Ancient Egyptian times. When you fry up a tasty burger or some French fries, you're eating the way a Pharaoh did. Well, maybe not exactly the way they did, but you're in the ballpark. Our ancestors were on the ball enough to realize that hot oil makes everything better, and we've only improved on the methods since then. From regular pan frying we evolved to deep frying, and then we got to the point where it became clear there was literally no food item that couldn't be fried if you tried hard enough. From fried Mars bars to fried butter to fried ice cream, we live in an age when we have our pick of anything and everything. And with that in mind, why don't you pick your favorites right here, and we'll use nothing but your love of fried foods to guess where you come from. Sound impossible? Try us!
