The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let FWx do it for you. Here, five of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Deep-Fried Starbucks Coffee: Every summer, a new extreme fried food emerges at a state or county fair. This year’s first entry: deep-fried Starbucks coffee found a the Bacon-A-Fair booth at the San Diego Fair. The deep-fried balls are stuffed with ground coffee and topped with whipped cream.

The World’s Most Expensive Grilled Cheese: The humble grilled cheese sandwich just got a glitzy new makeover. Serendipity 3 in New York City is offering a grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with lobster, laced with truffle oil and Champagne and coated in 24-karat gold. The cost? Oh, about 10 times as much as a standard grilled cheese. One sandwich goes for $214. [The Daily Meal]
