Are you serious, America?

Ok, let me first say that i do have something of an aversion to sweet food and savoury food being eaten together, even having them on the same plate kind of squicks me out- american breakfasts of bacon and eggs with some sweet pancakes and syrup on the same plate are super gross to me. Having them one after the other is fine, but at the same time/on the same plate is just wrong to me.
So that said, you can imagine how grossed out I am by the following video:



I don't want to offend you, American readers, but WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!??!!? Does this not seem like the wrongest thing in the world to you?? DONUTS AS THE BUN FOR A BURGER??? WHAT?!??!!?!!? WHAT?!??! THIS IS THE WRONGEST THING IN THE UNIVERSE! And not even a donut cut in half and used either side of the burger, but TWO donuts used one either side of the massive burger. Why not spread some syrup on there? Sprinkle some pure calorie sprinkles on it? get liposuction, save the fat, then inject it straight into the donut itself?


I am not going to be able to eat a burger or a donut again for a LONG time.

Definitely agree with you about the video. I'm american and was disgusted by it. Trust me, that isn't american culture to eat anything like that. I guess someone thought it to be a good idea?

Though I respectfully disagree that it is gross to have pancakes and sausage and eggs on the same plate. Well, I usually chop the sausage up and put it on my pancakes. I wasn't aware that it was only an american method of eating breakfast. It all goes great together in my opinion.

Personally, I am a fan of the combination of salty and sweet. Throw some m&ms in with some warm popcorn and then tell me if you don't like the combination.
But burger and doughnut is just wrong. I want to vomit just thinking about it, and yes, I am am American.
Granted, I'm a vegetarian, so the beef doesn't appeal so much, and I'm not a big doughnut fan, but those reasons aside, that combination is probably the worst idea ever.

As an American I can tell you that burgers on donuts aren't an American thing, it's a fucking weirdo thing!

That show features REALLY southern cooking. Paula Deen goes a little bit overboard sometimes.

RnB said...

Paula Dean's recipes do seem really wrong. I see you've found some of the fine programming that they play on Food Network in North America

Ahahaha, the Luther. What a grand creation. Made famous to the general public by The Boondocks:

I'm guessing that you won't be trying a McGriddle any time soon.

ZombieJesus said...

Its fairly well known that Paula Dean from the food network is a ignorant fat hillbilly who can't cook unless she has a keg of grease.

She is no Rachel Ray thats for sure

That's sick, nothing less.

Perhaps I can shed some light on this...

The use of the donut as a bun substitute is usually seen in the form of a Krispy Kreme glazed donut--a popular donut shop here in some parts of the States.

When consumed, it quite literally melts in your mouth.

The Krispy Kreme sandwhich is a current staple of food found in local/traveling fairs and carnivals--where most foods are fried to begin with, calorically dense, and generally unhealthy and unfit for human consumption.

The Krispy Kreme burger evolved from the Krispy Kreme chicken sandwhich, which I think was inspired by the Chicken and Waffles (fried chicken with waffles--basically fired dough).

Most people here call it fair food.

My earliest exposure to this culinary abomination was, in fact, in a fair--it was a Krispy Kreme chicken sandwhich. They also served something called deep-fried coke.

Not all Americans know of the existence of these things. America is a large and diverse place. These particular foods are typical of the south/south-east/central-south-eastern 'cuisine'--you can't pidgeon hole this as an American phenomenon.

These high calorie foods are rooted in the diets of the working class, and slaves, who needed the energy they provide. Most of whom live in the south.

As stereotypical as it sounds: hillbillies, rednecks, etc.

A lot of the cultural driving force behind the creation of these things is the result of the blending from the rural, working class, and southern areas of the States, spread by traveling fairs and truck drivers/travellers in the region.

Most fast food chains trace their rise from being located in these crucial tradeways--Route 66.

It doesn't taste that bad. Granted nobody eats this on a daily basis, it isn't the flavorific shit bomb many are lead to believe.

i think i just threw up in my mouth

Truth Seeking Missile said...

One other thing: I have many friends who are marijuana enthusiasts.

And they absolutely enjoy this shit when the munchies come rolling in.

That should suggest something about the state of mind you need to be in to find this palatable.

Southern, retarded, or stoned out of your mind.

Never underestimate the insanity of Southerners.

crazy-gabrielle said...

Ew ew ew ew ew! I like bacon and pancakes, but then again I always eat everything meticulously separately. I have having syrup on eggs, and I'll eat the salty on the plate and then the sweet.

But this. This is just gross.

raindrop said...

yummy

sweetcharade518 said...

It's a joke. She's just doing that to be funny.

Saoirse said...

never mind that, what the fuck is "Your frunch Bunch"?

NusaCat said...

The concept doesn't disgust me -- I'd try it at least once. I've seen far worse culinary creations in my world travels.

However, half the concept of a burger bun is to keep your hands from getting too messy. Mashing Glazed donuts is gonna leave you with mighty sticky fingers!

creativemachine said...

The only combination of sweet and savoury that ACTUALLY works IMO is McDonalds fries in Soft serve icecream. It's great, it just tastes like a bit of cone or something.
But i have to say in this case i agree. Just the description was enough for me... i didn't even need to watch the video - i was already completely grossed out by the concept.

*sidenote i thought this blogpost would be about Obama when i saw the title...How wrong i was

Nunya said...

oh please, Paperlilies. As if you couldn't tell that the idea of sandwiching meat between glazed doughnuts was unusual by the host's reaction to the idea.

Just because you saw it on an American infomercial; wrapping meat in a doughnut bun makes it an "American Thing"?

If you're looking to rip on America, there's plenty of other material out there. You're slipping.

ZombieJesus said...

Yeah down with the Red Coats heheh

Deborah said...

That is freaking disgusting. Just so you know, Americans do NOT eat like that. Only crazy people do.

I have the strong urge to do some crunches now as a result of watching that video. I feel fat just from seeing them eat that monstrosity!

Faz said...

nasty!

scott said...

The donut is a metaphor for the vagina. The burger a metaphor for some hot moist meat. Those two fat old ladies are subconsciously wishing they could have sex (again).

chris said...

I see nothing wrong with it.

AEB said...

the morning after being on the piss

AEB said...

or a fat bastard

Default Layouts said...

Oh. my. fucking. GOD! First of all, I fucking hate Paula Dean. I see her on TV all the time (I LOVE The Food Network LOL) and I just want to punch her right in the throat! She's so obnoxious and her accent drives me up the fucking wall.

Second, that is fucking atrocious!! Not only because she's putting a fucking DOUGHNUT on a hamburger, but ALSO because she totally just licked her fingers and touched the sandwhich, then gave it to that other bitch. AND THEN ate after her!?!?! WTF IS THAT. Could you not fucking cut the shit in half, what the fuck!

I really hate her haha. :P

By the way, my domain name is misspennington.com... it wouldn't let me add that in though grr! :P

serra said...

omg bryony, u r so funny! lol
i totally agree tho. thats so nasty. so wrong. so abusive. for realz. i mean...wut the eff??? im american, born and raised (colored asian tho) and I was even grossed out by that. i guess u have to be a southerner to get paula deens ways. im not, thats for damn sure.

Krystal Dawn said...

Yall are quick to assume that just because she's from the south we all eat like that. I've never once even heard of a place down here selling that mess. A google search led me to St. Louis and Ca.

Anyhow, that's pretty gross. Not something I would ever even get close to eating.

Christina said...

Krystal Dawn said it. Don't pin this crap on us southerners. Lol. I'm from Texas and this is one of the most disgusting thing I've ever seen...

lejaders said...

I have heard of American's doing crazy jazz like this, I don't know it just isn't very appetizing to me to be honest. ew.

Jake said...

that's the most disusting thing i've ever seen. and i completely agree with you on the sweet & savory seperation thing.
