There are a few new items at the Three Rivers Festival this year.
Among them are Deep Fried Butter and Donut Cheeseburgers. Â Let me tell you up front that the food items were provided to AFW free of charge.
First up was the Deep Fried Butter. Â I was very skeptical, as I’m sure most of you are, about this item. Â The butter is rolled into balls and then dipped in funnel cake batter and placed into the fryer until golden brown. Â Biting into it was almost like biting into a warm creme puff, sans the creme. Â Instead, you had the butter kind of oozing into your mouth. Â I’ve heard a few people comment this is an awful salty item. Â I didn’t pick up on the salt, just the oozing. Â While it’s taste was not unpleasant, it’s not one I would seek out time after time althoughÂ I might try another sample to make sure my initial impressions were correct.
Now the Donut Burger is an entirely different matter! Â This thing is almost as big as your head – well, not quite, but you do have to unhinge your jaw and do your best impression of a boa constrictor about to swallow its prey. Â I will warn you – ASK FOR wet naps! Â It is very messy, but well worth the efforts! Â There was something about the sweetness of a glazed donut combined with the beefy cheesy taste of a hamburger. Â If Krispy Kreme were to ever pick up on this, well, let’s just say I’d be first in line to purchase a franchise!
In fact, a quick google for Krispy Kreme (to make sure I remembered how to spell it) actually yielded ‘Krispy Kreme Burger‘ as a search option. Â Now if you want to see something really obscene, and I’m not talking about the video I’m about to show you, check out some of those pictures!
As a special extra bonus, I am posting video of the Deep Fried Butter making process as well as Donut Burger process here. Â You’ll get to see me – hide the kids as it’ll scare them – chow down.
If you want to try out either of these two items, here’s what the stand looks like.
Keep an eye out, hopefully later today, for another new item – Deep Fried Apples – as well as other favorites. In the meantime, take the poll to the right of this story!
