    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!

    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.

  15. Two blocks from one of the original Krispy Kremes

    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!

    @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.

    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.

    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!!

    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!

        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:

      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? 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.

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.

        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.
