this is not a beignet
This is a funnelcake. And while the fundamentals of a funnelcake - fried dough with powdered sugar - may seem similar to a beignet, trust me on this. They're not the same treat. Beignets are infinitely better. Even the price of a delicious plate of Cafe du Monde beignets (about $1.50) is better than the price of your average festival funnelcake (about $4).
Got that, Josh? Or do I need to have Natalie cuss at you some more?
