    To refresh I'd have a mango iced tea in China! I don't like most of the snacks as they're sugary or fatty

    Sort of deep fried sweet dough, like a doughnut, in the shape of a beaver tail. I had strawberries and cream on mine and it was lovely. And then the stall vanished and I've never seen it there since then.:unsure:

    Beaver Tails is a name for fried dough, yes. :yes: Canada used to cook it right there at the kiosk, so it was hot and fresh. Then they started cooking them elsewhere and serving them from the cart and the quality dropped like a stone. They were gone not long after.

    An easy approximation is to fry bread dough. You can then top it with whatever you please. Mama used to make it and I'd like it with just butter but others like powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar... that sort of thing.

    She called it frite. Some places call it elephant ears, other names are used depending upon region. It's generally all the same. Fried dough.

    Cool that you ma called it that. In the church picnics in Northeast Pennsylvania (at least the Italian ones) the line would stretch out for a local version called "pizza frita". It was like you said fried dough coated in sugar and served in a brown paper bag. People would buy like a dozen or so and take them home. Guess it was too messy to make at home. The bags would be nearly transparent with the seeping oil...:lol:
