State fairs are known for their crazy dessert offerings, but the most recent trendy dessert is proving to be quite dangerous.

Florida’s Pensacola Interstate Fair offers a liquid nitrogen-dipped confection called Dragon Breath.

The sweet treat is a “dessert cereal snack that tastes like Fruit Loops dipped in liquid nitrogen,” Today.com reports. The allure is that once you eat it, the customer’s “smoke like a dragon.”

The Instagrammable food’s smoky effects, however, gave one 14-year-old a severe burn on her thumb after she came into contact with the liquid nitrogen.

Her grandmother had to take the teen to the emergency room to treat the serious injury she sustained from the dessert.

“The ER doctor had to cut [the thumb] open, cut away the dead skin and get the infection out,” Tina McArthur told WEARTV. “They said had we not come in and got her finger treated she could have possibly lost her thumb.”

Liquid nitrogen has an extremely low temperature, between negative 196 and negative 320 degrees Fahrenheit that can cause severe burns and destruction to skin tissue. If consumed, the liquid nitrogen can cause serious internal complications or fatal asphyxiation caused by the substance displacing oxygen inside the body.

However, in the past week, two patrons have reported injuries at the fair from the dessert. Others who have tried the treat posted on social media that eating it was “physically uncomfortable.”

A fair spokesperson confirmed to Today.com that Dragon Breath will not be returning in 2018.

Guess you’ll just have to stick to funnel cakes and deep-fried Oreos.
