How serendipitous! Right after writing about fair food and America’s love of doughnuts, I see a news item that combines the two.
This year’s New York State Fair will be serving up the Big Kahuna Donut Burger. This quarter-pound burger is served between slices of a grilled glazed doughnut. With cheese, bacon, and the fixin’s, The Big Kahuna Donut Burger comes out to about 1,500 calories: a true, over-the-top gutbuster. What will they think of next? Couldn’t they have worked a deep-fried Snickers bar into the mix somehow?
I’d like to see someone slug down a Big Kahuna Donut Burger and then take a spin on the Tilt-a-Whirl — at least, I’d like to see it from a safe distance.
