State fairs have been known for inventing interesting food ideas. Most of them recently have involved deep frying a favorite dessert: Twinkies, Oreos, or candy bars.
But a vendor at the Wisconsin State Fair may have gone over the top: a Krispy Kreme cheeseburger!
That's right, a cheeseburger between two halves of a Krispy Kreme glazed donut. The calorie count: 1,000. And for an additional cost, chocolate covered bacon is added to the burger.
This burger didn't originate at this year's Wisconsin fair, but that's how it is gaining its notoriety. As a fan of Krispy Kreme donuts I'd love to try one, though it definitely goes against the healthier-eating kick I'm currently on.
The Allentown Fair is in two weeks. Maybe it will show up there.
