Toronto - The infamous doughnut cheeseburger with bacon is making its debut in Toronto at the Canadian National Exhibition on Aug. 19 after it won rave reviews during the Calgary Stampede.
The CNE will be home to another culinary experiment – two Krispy Kreme doughnuts sandwiching a beef patty, American cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce, egg and bacon. Adventurous customers can grab the artery-killer at EPIC Burgers and Waffles on the CNE grounds starting Aug. 19.
The doughnut cheeseburger was a hit at last month's Calgary Stampede, according to the Vancouver Sun. Costing $8 each, the burgers flew off the grills. One customer was quoted as saying, "The doughnuts as the buns, boy was it sweet. That glaze, God almighty it was sweet."
According to the Toronto Sun, this burger is loaded with 1,550 calories, "more than three-quarters of a woman’s recommended daily average total of about 2,000 calories and a significant portion of the 2,500 calories suggested for men — depending on a person’s level of activity."
Krispy Kreme's concoction is the latest in a line of burger innovations. Last year, Burger King introduced its "pizza burger" and Friendly's in the U.S. replaced its buns with grilled cheese sandwiches.
