Thursday evening at the Kentucky State Fair, I tried the "infamous" Donut Burger... Everybody has been saying to me, "Are you crazy? and What did it tast like?" My response... Just a little, and a bacon cheese burger wrapped in a Krispy Kreme gazed donut.
When you bite into it the first thing to greet your taste buds is the sweetness of the donut, next your palate is treated to a juicy char-grilled beef patty covered in cheese, quickly followed by the hint of smokey crisp bacon (I normally find bacon makes anything taste good). Topping off this one of a kind culinary "delight"... fresh tomato, lettuce and onion.
Was it gross...? Yes, but at the same time I found myself liking the Donut Burger in a oddly delicious kind of way (it's a meal and a dessert all wrapped up into one!). After the second bite my brain kicked in and I realized eating this entire burger is probably not a good idea. This two handed mammoth packs about 1,000 calories and cost eight bucks! My recommendation... If you dying to try the Donut Burger share it with three friends and have some Tums handy!
