Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger...because a burger was just too healthy
The Krispy Kreme cheeseburger – that's right, a cheeseburger between doughnut halves-more proof that Americans will take anything that risks clogging our arteries immediately and try to make it worse!
The doughnut is halved, then its cut sides are grilled and become the outside of the sandwich so that the sugary glaze makes mortal contact with the cheese and the meat.
Even if that sounds good, there are all kinds of objections from the eat-healthy crowd.
The Machine Shed, a restaurant with a food concession at the Wisconsin State Fair, told the Milwaukee Journal it expected to sell about 3,500 Krispy Kreme cheeseburgers over the first three days of the fair. About a quarter of its customers were pitching in an extra buck for the side order of chocolate-covered bacon.
Now I come from Philadelphia-where after frying steak with cheese, we like nothing better than to smother deep fried potatoes with melted cheese.
Americans invented deep fried ice cream. And deep fried Snickers bars.
But this may be the pinnacle of junk food!
I know this has nothing to do with music, but it was just too funny to pass up!
