This burger goes a little too far - right?!?!?

Cheeseburgers? Mmmmm.
Krispy Kreme doughnuts? Mmmmm.

A cheeseburger on a grilled Krispy Kreme?  Ummmm???

A popular dish on the fair circuit this year is the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger. At the Wisconsin State Fair, which ended Sunday, it sold for $5. For an extra buck, you could add chocolate-covered bacon.
And the burger packs an eye-glazing 1,000 calories, according to the vendor. A regular Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut has 200 calories.

The Krispy burger has been around for years. Dubbed the Luther - supposedly for the late singer Luther Vandross' love of them - it is on the menu at restaurants in Georgia and elsewhere. Sometimes it's served with a fried egg on top.

David Sparks, the director of the Dixie Classic Fair in Winston-Salem, said he hadn't heard of any vendors who plan to sell it at the fair, which will begin Oct. 1.  "I think I'd be surprised if somebody didn't do it, this being the home of Krispy Kreme," Sparks said.
