Would You Rather: Fried Oreos or Zeppoles?

Written by:

If this church and these decorations look familiar, then chances are you’ve at least perused the St. Ann’s Festival in Hoboken in the past. A long standing tradition, St. Ann’s festival features various Italian foods, music, and singers for the public’s enjoyment. Tons of festivities happen throughout the week in the streets of Hoboken including a procession through the streets!

Among the festivities, there are some delicious desserts that are served — which many people wait in line for a good while in order to chow down on.

Now there are few desserts that are worth EVERY calorie, but it’s pretty much a fact that zeppoles and fried oreos are among the desserts on the calories-don’t-count list. Both are served at St. Ann’s — making it very tricky to decide which to eat. Therefore, the question must be asked, WOULD YOU RATHER: FRIED OREOS or ZEPPOLES?


Exhibit A: FRIED OREOS {via}


EXHIBIT B: Zeppoles {via}

Or perhaps you have to try both, like me. Leave your answer in the comments, below.
