    • In paragraph 2 of "History", it states, "...the concession stand purveying the dish sold 9,000 orders of the dish..." Is it necessary to say "the dish" again, following "9,000 orders"?
    • Paragraph 1 of "Characteristics" begins, "Deep-fried butter's flavor has been compared to that of French toast, and as like "the most buttery bread you've ever had."[13] It has been described that the butter mostly melts..." Two things about this stretch:
      • The transition from "compared to... French toast" to "and as like..." might flow better if the latter is worded as "also being described as tasting like..." or something to that extent.
      • Where it says, "It has been described that the butter mostly melts...", it might read more easily if this were changed to "It has been stated that the butter mostly melts...", or "The butter has been described as mostly melting...".
        • Good ideas here, which I have incorporated into the article (diff). North America1000 01:52, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
    • In the section on "Fried butter", I was a bit unsure about the line, "... while continuously covering it with an egg yolks...". Either the "an" or the pluralization of "yolk" ought to be dropped, but I can't tell whether the recipe calls for the use of multiple egg yolks or only one.

    • I have copy edited the article to address this (diff). The source [1] states that the yolks of two eggs are used, hence plural for "egg yolks". North America1000 01:44, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
    'Bout time I wrapped this up. Yep, looks great now! Herein dwells the greatest dictionary ever composed! (talk) 06:35, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

    Though I can't see myself getting in consuming proximity with the topic any time soon, I'm nonetheless pleased to say its article qualifies as a GA! Herein dwells the greatest dictionary ever composed! (talk) 06:37, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

    Just to check, this article states that a citation is needed for "significant buttery flavor". Given that the item consists of a stick of butter, coated with batter, is it really necessary to require a citation? I mean, it might just be me, but that seems rather obvious to suggest that butter tastes like butter. -E.J.P., 16/06/16 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:05, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
