First it was the scintillating sizzle of the State Fair down in Florida and now the happy Hoosiers of Indiana are going hog wild at their State Fair, over the tempting taste treat quickly becoming known world wide as the Bacon – Cheese Doughnut Burger!
The Reas family is at it again, as 53 year old Dennis Reas, of Corydon Indiana was up to his old tricks, custom creating consummate “culinary combination” cuisine by building a delicious bacon cheeseburger safely, securely and semi-sanely, between buns of two Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
Now before anyone starts to question the why someone would consider doing such a seemingly strange act, let me assure you that when this whole Krispy Kreme Bacon Burger business started flaring up about 5 years ago, I set out to investigate the situation and came away fully satisfied that while I would not regularly submit my gourmet bacon and my Top 1.5% cuts of beef to being sandwiched between to sugary sweet doughnuts on a regular basis, every now and then, it truly is a most fascinating and savory flavor sensation.
It seems that the Reas family are the very same folks behind such delectable delights as “Deep Fried Pepsi, Chocolate-Covered Bacon ( one of my personal favorites) and of course, the famous / or infamous (your call) Deep-Fried Butter that has been served up at previous Indiana events of note, so these people already have a powerful pork popularity providing press and public “uh-proval” to pretty much everything that the Reas Family serves up these days.
For those of you “thinking outside the bun,” or should we say, donut, perhaps the Deep-Fried Sushi, Deep-Fried Dill Pickles, Deep-Fried Candy Bars, (am I beginning to sense a trend here) or the Chocolate-Covered Popcorn Balls, Root-Beer Marinated Ribs, or possibly a scrumptious plate of Pork Patty covered with …. Of course, more pork, but this time it’s “Pulled Pork” and yes, if you insist, you can get that served on a bun as well, but like Seinfeld’s infamous “Soup Nazi” would say … “No Krispy Kreme for YOU – Come Back; Six Months!”
