This one's for you, Ali Velshi. Previously - Salt and battering at the State Fair of Texas

I like the idea of adding sweetness to a delicious, savory hamburger. So, for me, the idea behind the burger and donut-bun is a good one. For people who want to be more health conscious (myself included) perhaps there is a more wholesome way to have a sweet bun for burgers. Likewise, for people who enjoy this kind of excess, there's always the "Dunkin' Donuts with an 80/20 corn fed beef patty" variety.
The cheeseburger can be delicious without the unhealthy donut, so this is obviously a gimmick aimed at the unwise.
I had one of these at the Wisconsin State Fair. It's honestly one of the BEST things ever – the sweet of the donut went perfect with the salt/fat of the burger. They're not that big, either. And I can't stand KK donuts!
Oh, and Chris? You must hate yourself to project onto others like that. I pity you.
The only reason people THINK Krispy Kreme is any good is because they put crack in the glaze. Dunkin Donuts now and Dunkin Donuts forever.
PETA – People Eating Tasty Animals
I like my cheeezeburger fried please with bacons. Lots of cow.
I had a crispy cream & broiled chicken sandwich w/ batter & deep fried at the LA county fair.
Tastes GREAT!!!! Will do it again. Might even make it at home. (Iown a deep fryer.)
Not enough calories.
Ironic that this is filed under the "Living" section.
yowza- this thing should come with it's own set of de-fibrillator paddles.. or at least a gym membership.
Someone should deep-fry a bran muffin to appease both the left and right-wingers.
This is second only to deep fried butter...yum!
Dumb ass...did you learn anything in school? The name is Mrs.McFadden. I'm a married woman...jackass.
Jackass in 3D starring Mrs. McFatass!
Not my cup of tea but to each his/her own. I read in the comments that this is 3600 calories, isn't that almost twice the amount recommended for an entire day?
The NC State Fair starts this week, and I know my son (he's 15) will want to try this! When I first moved to NC, I didn't know what allthe fuss was about with KK doughnuts. OMG! If you've never had one right off the "assembly line", you don't know what you're missing! We keep our eating of obnoxious fair items to a minimum, but it only happens once a year. I indulged in dark chocolate-coated bacon last year – mighty tasty!
McFathead – Actually I am pretty sure I will be doing your gf that night, but thanks all the same...
@Truth...first of all my name is McFadden so get it right...Quite frankly I don't give a damn what anybody thinks about me, as long as I am happy with myself I could care less what the next person thinks. However, it is ignorant comments like the ones being made on here that make people feel bad about themselves and once again who the hell are you to judge. Look at yourself before you try to talk about anybody else. Now, I'm going to get the hell off of here because I am getting pissed and I will f**k somebody up.
McFathead – Wow, profanity and threats...Nice. You must be a member of the far left Party of Hate.
Seriously, you guys are blowing this way out of proportion. A regular hamburger bun is about 130 calories and 2.5 grams of fat. Substitute a donut with 260 calories & 14 grams of fat. A difference of +130 calories. Yeah, the fat grams are much more but it's not like it adds 3000 calories on top of a regular, greasy, cheesy, fatty, yummy, delicious burger. Chill.
I'd try it.
I guess you all know that donuts are cooked in rancid oil, right?
What a blanket, general statement...it must be TRUE!! All oil is rancid!
These were introduced this year at the Nut Club Fall Festival in Evansville, IN. I just don't know what I think about this sandwich???
i am lol'ing at this thread.
its especially funny when people get so involved in responding seriously to flaming.
I'm not a health food person, but even I threw up in my mouth a little looking at that thing. I just don't see how something sweet could go with a delicious burger... sigh. Also, what do you wash it down with, milk or beer? or both? ;)
Why must someone ruin a perfectly good doughnut like this?
I would agree with you, except there is nothing perfectly good about a Krispy Kreme.
A heart-attack in the waiting with every bite. Yum, yum....
Who cares if some people choose Bran Muffins over a deep fried doughnut cheeseburger?? Chances are she will live a longer than you + have clean arteries! Chew on that!! You can enjoy a splurge like this burger once in a while as long as you realize what a healthy life style entails. You are what is wrong with America, making fun of people who eat healthy...if only you could get off your fat fanny and run to get that bran muffin...GOOD LUCK!!
Its called a Luther Burger and they have been around for years. You just have not heard about them before becaue most people who eat one die of heart failure before they can brag about how good it tastes.
I had one of these before and it made me feel so good i punched a jogger.
Of all the responses so far, this one made me laugh the best.
HAHAHA That was the funniest thing I'll hear/read all day.
It would be even better if they coated the whole burger in batter, and then deep fried it!
Oh, by the way, I wouldn't eat one of those deep fried, meaty things, either. haha! Just my bran muffins!
get bent kaitlyn, you sound as boring as your bran muffins. donut burgers are genius, happy tuesday!
Boring but HEALTHY! Bet my arteries are in better shape than yours. Maybe you had better look at the BIG PICTURE and if you eat many of those things your picture is most likely BIG! haha. And, no my life is anything but boring. Like I said yesterday, if you never lived in a hippie commune, don't knock it. Boring......certainly NOT! And, by the way, you sound like a know-it-all. And that's boring!!!!!!! And have a wonderful day!
I'll feed you some burger you won't soon forget
I grew up in the South where my mother and grandmother fried everything. None of my sisters nor I cook like that.
This looks absolutely disgusting to me. But then again, I don't care for donuts and I'm allergic to beef.
Thanks, Beth. Very enlightening.
A clear case of inbreeding.
i don't go to fairs
I don't even put Arco gas in my truck, no way I'm putting this sh*t in my body! Or anybody else with half a brain, which excludes a big percentage of fair-goers.
Nobody I know would eat this crap so lay off the America potshots.
Nothing says you can't use one from DD.
I did fine it strange that they looked down on extras. Of course things like lettuce and tomato don't belong in the thing, but some things could enhance it. (Like onion rings for crunch)
If it was a Dunkin Donuts Doughnut I would be slightly interested. I'm just not a fan of the boring Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
Krispy Kreme when the "hot light" is on is so much better than Dunkin Donuts.
I'm always Hot so I don't need a lite!
BTW, this stuff tastes amazing. Don't dis until you try.
Paula Deen had you beat a long time ago.
I first saw this at the Florida State Strawberry Festival last March in Plant City. But their version was even more impressive; if I remember correctly, they used 2 doughnuts for the "bun", not just one cut in half! The festival also had Applewood bacon with sepaerate chocolate dipping suace, which was more to my taste...Yum!
Lighten up Charlotte, or here's an idea, get on your ALL natural foods blog and share your tofu/bran muffin reciepe with the hippy commune in Idaho.
Hey BubbaLeroy, if you've never eaten a bran muffin or tofu and especially if you have NEVER been a member of a hippie commune, please don't have a negative opinion or make fun. If you tried either of these things, you might have a very different view of LIFE. Thanks, and have a wonderful day!
Plz Don't Bogart that joint and I need some more Brownies!
GROSSSSSSS...... Donuts are disgusting in the first place but this? Yecch, no wonder America is having an obesity epidemic. And the people who have been posting their puerile, four-year-old-style potty humor are even grosser. You yokels actually think you're funny? Your wit is only half there.
The funniest part is America isn't the fattest nation in the world. And guess what? The fattest nations in the world don't eat this kind of stuff...they eat natural foods!! So, your logic is dead wrong. Sorry, you don't pass Go or collect 200 dollars.
No, America is the fattest nation in the world. Look it up.
Look it up? Okay...

Here's the link: http://www.infoplease.com/world/statistics/obesity.html
farmfresh, check your facts...
Everybody else is stupid except me
Impartial – maybe you should check your facts. As of the 2010 reports, the US is the fatest country. Go to live science and look at the stats: http://www.livescience.com/health/etc/100927-holds-head-high-obesity-ranking.html
Remark, that live science study is only of 33 countries who are members, not of the whole world.
Bad argument Travis. The top seven fattest nations are all Pacific Islands. You might think they're living on fish and tropical fruit, but they hardly eat 'natural foods' there, sadly for some reason traditional diets have been largely abandoned for lots of packaged and processed food:
sounds like she needs a donut for her b*tt. cause something's in it!
I'll bet $100 that this has less calories,fat, and sodium than a typical pancakes and sausage breakfast. What exactly is so bad about this? It may not have any healthy attributes but either do most breakfast plates, and this comes in much smaller in size than a normal breakfast. Its just a single donut with a beef patty, big deal.
3600 calories. They sell these at the River City Rascals baseball games in St.Charles Mo. also.
3600 calories? Get real. This thing only has 550cal (revealed in a video on CNN), 10 calories more than a big mac and around 1000 less than your typical burger and fries. So go ahead and grab your heart at this while chugging down your 1700cal lunch.
Americans blow everything out of proportion when they see junk foods combined together. This thing is a lot better to eat than a typical american breakfast. If people actually knew what they were eating then they wouldnt be so fat.
You just summed it up perfectly!
Hey Charlotte, shut up fatty.
MMMMMM! I want one right now! I'm surprised the whole foods trolls haven't come out of the woodwork yet to tell us how we should love tofu and bean sprouts as much as they do...ahhh my mouth is watering!
Dang Vegans -always trying to spoil my breakfast & lunch! Jdizzle,That is called a Surprise! That's when you fart and get a Lump too.
Boy it's nice to be thin! Enjoy your deep-fried goodies & be sure to wash well under all those layers of fat (can't imagine how long it takes you all to shower or if you remember some distant time when you could look down & see your genitalia) God, fat people are just butt-ugly!
And narcissistic, ectomorphic Goobers with an involved fixation on other peoples bathing are monkey-butt weird.
Boy its nice to be thin! and actually get to enjoy good deep fried food every once in a while instead of sticking to a strict diet from fear of becoming fat...
@ Chris...WTF!!!! Who the hell are you to judge anybody? What the hell does the burger have to do with being fat? Just because a person is overweight doesn't mean that person will eat everything fatting that comes their way. You are a very shallow, stupid, and closed minded person. You really need to reevaluate yourself before you try to talk about anyone else. Now, would I eat one of these burgers...no, the idea of ground beef and donuts just don't sit well with me but your still an A-hole.
McFathead, have you ever noticed that it usually is your liberals who are the overweight ones? The typical mentality of "I can eat all I want without ramafications" that is so prevalent among the far left. Kind of like they can spend all they want without being accountable.
WTF are you talking about!!! Well you are mature. It would be an idiot like you to like such a idiotic sandwich...Just dumb!!!
Love it! I completely agree
I'm referring to Chris's comment of course
That is insane. Look at the obesity geographically, and then compare that to what are usually "red" and "blue" states. The red states, largely the south and the interior, are also were obesity is most prevalent.
Hey Chris, if you want the freedom to be a complete scumbag, other people should have the freedom to be fat.
Some people are genetically predisposed to be overweight with very little they can do about it. Unfortunately, that's only about 5% of the fatties in this country. You soda drinking fried food munching fatties drive up the costs of everyone else's healthcare. Most of my insurance is to pay for everyone else who carelessly ignores their health and gets type 2 diabetes in their 40s. Because of this, I feel do have a right to be angered by people who habitually eat junk food and don't exercise. Don't get my wrong, I would probably try this thing. Once. Enjoy letting out all of your rage on this reply.
Truth, you hate-spewing buffoon, you just have to politicize a feelgood, pigout, happy food talk, don't you? You neocons have to suck the joy out of everything!
LOL @ all the fatties on here getting riled up.
I'm not a vegan, but I don't eat beef. There is something just wickedly delicious sounding about a cheeseburger on a donut!! LOL Doesn't sound the healthiest, but it does sound good. Think I could do the same thing with a turkey burger?
Vegans eat what REAL food eats!
wow Anna, you sound hot.
Only one youngman. You know that cheese makes you fart and you have customers to take care of today.
I canz haz cheezburger?
The 3 major food groups=MEAT.CHEESE and DOUGHNUTS. Doh.You forgot the BEER!
They forgot the bacon!
Sorry-Was watching the video and spelled my name wrong.sigh!
