What I Ate at the Giglio Festival: Vol. 1
One is a zeppola.
Two or more are zeppole.
I've never bought less than 6, but I share them with my friends.
The best ones aren't too oily from their bath in the fry-vat. These were pretty good. The girl serving them up (they are shaken in a bag with powdered sugar before you get them) had interesting eye makeup. That's how I chose the booth I bought from over the 3 or 4 others I saw advertising zeppole. I was encouraged by friends to do a taste test from multiple booths and determine which was the best, but that seemed like a lot of fried dough to ingest. Maybe next time.
One last thing: powered sugar is dangerous. Don't inhale when you take a bite. Be prepared to get some extra sugar on your fingers, mouth, clothes, and feet.
