Bij Krispy Kreme (donut keten) kun je tegenwoordig een zgn. bacon cheeseburger halen.
Dit is een hamburger waarbij de broodjes vervangen zijn door donuts.
Het schijnt dat dit een uitvinding is van Luther Vandross, vandaar dat deze burgers ook wel Luther Burgers worden genoemd.
FOODS THAT WILL GIVE YOU A HEART ATTACK INSTANTLY
10. Butter Busts
At the Minnesota state fair, you can have a personal bust made of butter. I’m guessing that anyone who’s into deep-fried coffee and spaghetti would most likely enjoy eating a hunk of butter shaped like some chick’s head.
9. Spaghetti and Meatballs on a Stick
This Italian treat is balled up, breaded, and fried. (I see a theme here.) They cut the spaghetti strands into small one-inch chunks, and then roll them up into a big meatball. The meatball is then dipped into red sauce and fried. This Minnesota state fair dinner is also known as Heart Attack on a Stick.
8. Fernie’s Fried Mac ’n Cheese
Auntie Fernie’s (mother of cousin Jack, the guy with four teeth who runs the Tilt-a-Whirl) version of this seems to be the most popular. She takes scoops of macaroni and cheese, tops them with garlicky breadcrumbs and then, (surprise, surprise) deep-fries them to make her famous mac ’n cheese. There’s only 610 calories per stick and these can now be found at certain restaurants.
7. Fried Avocadoes and Fried Guacamole
Concessionaire Allan Weiss offered up Zesty Fried Guacamole Bites in 2007, and in 2006, he created the Fried Avocado (chunks of avocado, breaded and fried). The guac bites are a scoop of guacamole, breaded, fried, and served with ranch or salsa. Mr. Weiss decided that since the fried avocado went over so well, that people would like fried guacamole even more.
6. Cool Dog
A cool dog will quench your hunger for salty and sweet. It’s a hot dog that replaces the bun with sponge cake and replaces the weenie with ice cream. The condiments are replaced with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and sprinkles. Sounds pretty cool-dog-a-licious.
5. Fried Cookie Dough
First they chill the cookie (chocolate chip, pecan, and coconut based cookie dough), then they batter the cookie dough, then they deep-fry the cookie dough, then people—regular people like you and me—consume the cookie dough.
4. Donkey Tails
A donkey tail does not contain any donkey parts. It’s a large beefy sausage filled with cheese, enveloped in a flour tortilla and deep-fried. Top it with chili or nacho cheese. For those of you watching your weight, you can also top it with salsa.
3. Deep-Fried Drinks
Latte: I take my morning latte with soy milk and splenda. Carnies take theirs with pastry batter and ice cream. A deep fried latte is made with ice cream, cappuccino ice cream (duh, it’s coffee), whipped cream, caramel sauce, and is sprinkled with some instant coffee powder. Creator Mike Levy said, “We have gained about ten pounds trying this.” The best part of waking up is an artery-clogger in your cup.
Deep-Fried Coke: I’m not lying, folks—deep-fried Coke. Coke syrup, mixed with funnel cake batter, deep-fried, and drizzled with some more syrup. I almost forgot; it’s drenched with whipped cream and a cherry. Plus, it only has a mere 830 calories. Give me a cup of that sugary, syrupy goodness. (Photo below.)
Deep-Fried Cosmopolitan: I doubt the Sex and the City chicks sucked these down. A deep-fried cosmopolitan is actually a fried pastry overflowing with cheesy cheesecake, drizzled with a fruity glaze, and topped with a hunk of lime. Obviously, it’s served up on a stick.
2. Kool-Aid Dill Pickles (Koolickle)
To make a Kool-Aid pickle, just dump out half the brine in the pickle jar and refill it with your favorite flavor of Kool-Aid. The pickle will turn a glowing red or neon green depending on what flavor you use.
1. Krispy Kreme Burger
Stop wiping your glasses, you read it right—Krispy Kreme Burger. A cheeseburger with bacon, except the “bun” is two Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Created by a minor-league baseball club, this baby costs $4.50 and it packs well over 1,000 calories. (Just one glazed donut has 10 grams of sugar.)
