That's One Sweet Burger!

Posted by Angie Luvara, RALEIGH, NC -- I’m not sure how it works in other states, but in North Carolina we count down to mid-October, waiting on the State Fair to come to Raleigh. Diets, food habits, and overall health concerns are thrown out the window as we indulge in all sorts of deep-fried goodies. From cookie dough to veggies, it is nearly impossible to find a form of food at the State Fair that hasn’t been rolled in some form of a crust and plunged into burning hot oil. With state fair season in full swing all over the country, I thought I’d share with you one of the few concoctions that hasn’t touched a deep fryer—the Krispy Kreme Burger. Don’t let the lack of a crispy crust fool you—this State Fair specialty is sure to cause a stomachache nonetheless. Replacing a traditional hamburger bun with two krispy kreme doughnuts, the Krispy Kreme Burger stand attracted just as many spectators as it did brave souls willing to attempt to eat this calorie-laden creation. Although, most held off on the ketchup.
