Today is Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

While wind chill temperatures are far into the negatives today, that doesn’t mean you can’t find some state or country fair food to remind you of summer. 

If you can’t get enough of deep-fried Oreos at the yearly fair, look no further than Sonic Drive-In for relief.

The retro fast food chain is offering deep-fried Oreos for just $2.99 for a limited time, USA Today reported. 

The treat comes with vanilla ice cream. Cinnabon Cinnasnacks are also available. Sonic says the snacks “create delectable and dippable combinations of hot with cold and gooey with crunchy.”

Sonic isn’t the only restaurant embracing fair food on their menu: Burger King recently added funnel cake fries to its menu.

This isn’t the first time Sonic has had a menu item that breaks norms – the restaurant debuted a pickle juice-flavored slush last year.
