Oh, dear. What has Dunkin' Donuts' new doughnut-breakfast sandwich wrought?
As fair season kicks into high gear, concession owners have doughnuts in mind as they fire up their fryers.
Deep-fried Snickers and Coke are passé. This year, doughnut burgers and sandwiches are everywhere. Perhaps the most outrageous creation is the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe, which made its debut at the San Diego County Fair, accompanied by a fried, bacon-wrapped pickle.
Hamburgers that swap out glazed donuts (Krispy Kreme seems to be a favorite brand) for the bun have traveled the fair circuit for a few years, along with a few variations: cheeseburger, bacon cheeseburger and so on. Last year, the New York State Fair added a doughnut-wrapped hot dog to its doughnut-burger repertoire.
