Is the Krispy Kreme Burger a sandwich to die for?
The Krispy Kreme Burger contains more than 1,000 calories. Is it worth it, even if one serving may turn a consumer's physique into a walking cream puff?
Tell us, if you have ever tasted this juicy beef burger, covered in melted cheese and served between two sugar-glazed Krispy Kreme donuts.
The Krispy Kreme Burger, made popular at the 2010 Wisconsin State Fair (August 5th to 15th), may be a culinary delight or a cardiological nightmare. What do you think?
Milwaukee’s Machine Shed Restaurant served up thousands of Krispy Kreme Burgers (at $5 a pop) during the Badger State’s annual fair. Patrons coughing up an extra buck even partook of Krispy Kreme Burgers topped with chocolate-covered bacon.
Although the Machine Shed’s Nathan Morrissey is gaining credit for the Krispy Kreme Burger, the split-second heart attack is actually a variation of the Luther Burger, a cholesterol-causing and calorie-laden bacon cheeseburger (also served on a double Krispy Kreme glazed donut bun).
The Luther Burger was named for the late R&B singer Luther Vandross.
Luther Vandross died in July 2005 at age 54, presumably from complications of a stroke. Although the popular singer suffered from diabetes (along with high blood pressure and obesity) during his lifetime, no one seem to know for sure whether he ever actually ate a Luther Burger.
