Could the newest dessert fast food trend be deep fried OREO cookies? It appears to be starting to head in that direction, as two different fast food fried chicken spots have started selling versions of the state fair treat.

Church's Chicken is selling State Fair Oreos, a product that's been in freezers around the country for a while but has yet to hit the fast food scene. Available nationwide for a limited time, they're served with a drizzle of sweet icing and sold in a pack of 6 for $3.99.

Meanwhile, Popeyes is testing out a deep-fried Double Stuf OREO in the Boston area. Funnel cake batter coats these thick OREO cookies, which are served on their own in an order of 2, 3, or 4 pieces. The 2-piece comes at $1.99, with the prices varying after that. These will only be available in Boston through the end of October via in-store or UberEats.
With the two fried chicken rivals dishing out the treats at the same time, it may only be a matter of time before more competitors, and the rest of fast food, eventually follow suit.
