RALEIGH - Although not quite a healthy choice for a meal, the Krispy Kreme doughnut cheeseburger drew world-wide attention at the North Carolina State Fair this past week.

 

The “sandwich” consists of two sugar glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts that serve as buns to hold in two pieces of bacon, a slice of cheese, and of course a hamburger patty.  

 

All served together, it made a big name for itself to thousands of fairgoers.  According to NC State Fair officials, the unique sandwich was even featured on CNN during the fair.

 

According to a worker at the 1853 Grille, which was serving the doughnut burger and other unique dishes inside the Kerr Scott Building, sales of the $6 Krispy Kreme sandwich were brisk.

 

“We’ve sold lots of them,” she said.

 

In a presentation at another part of the fair, NC Agriculture Secretary Steve Troxler alluded to the popularity of the burger.

 

“If the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger does not fit your fancy, then try the one pound hot dog,” he joked.

 

As some people walked by and viewed the sandwich, the phrase “gross” was mentioned more than one time.  However, a worker in the grille explained to them that the state fair is a time to experiment with unique foods.

 

“It’s the state fair,” he said. “You’ve got to try some foods outside of your comfort zone.”

 

In addition to the Krispy Kreme burger, some other popular dishes offered by the grill included deep-fried Twinkies, deep-fried Ho-ho’s, and even deep fried pecan pie.
