  1. Well, I was hungry before I looked at this but now I am a bit queasy. Some of those are downright disgusting.

    1. I saw this yeaterday, and my conclusion was that it is a joke.

        At least the turbaconducken was real; I have seen that elsewhere in a more obviously reliable site.

        And I have had the cheesecake on a stick. It was actually rather good.

        1. re: jmckee

          I've had Turducken before. It's pretty good, though more for the gimmick. Anyone who watches Thanksgiving football (or used to rather) knows that Madden had one every year. Now covering it bacon? That is new to me...and brilliant.

          I don't think it's a joke at all. Here is a link to a place in my neighborhood and a burger they dare people to eat. Looks pretty tame compared to most on the site posted, though.

            And don't forget The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo and their free 72 oz steak! It's a trip.

            The deep fried Mars bar is definitely real... I have been known to put the creme sides of 2 double stuf oreos together to make quadruple stufs, so the mega stuf oreo makes sense (kind of). And sadly, The Double Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt looks very tasty to me right now.

              I've actually had the deep fried Mars bar---it's really decadent. I've also had deep fried Oreos and deep fried Twinkies. They're getting popular at street fairs in NYC. I try not to eat them more than once every other year and I usually share it with somebody.

              As for a Krispy Creme burger, Paula Deen had made "The Lady's Breakfast Sandwich." It was sausage, ham, bacon, eggs, I think cheese on a glazed doughnut and then deep fried. My arteries were clogging just looking at it.

              1. re: MrsT

                I've had a deep fried Mars bar and a deep fried Twinkie, both at the NC State Fair (different years though!). The Mars bar was pretty good, decadent as you said. I really didn't enjoy the Twinkie though, it lost its inherent Twinkie-ness, the creme melted into the cake and the cake was indistinguishable from the batter. This year I'm going for the fried Reese's cups.

                Have you seen Paula Deen's Krispy Kreme bread pudding? As much as I love KK original glazed, a dozen tossed with condensed milk and fruit cocktail is just too much.

                1. re: mpjmph

                  I wanted to try the deep fried Moon Pie at the NC State Fair last fall, but missed it. There's always this year!

              2. re: mpjmph

                Yea. I am definitely making a Double Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt in the very near future. It speaks to me.

              3. re: roxlet

                Not a joke at all. The Krispy Kreme burger is actually pretty popular. I've heard about a lot of these things over the year. A lot were developed as gimmicks for state fairs and the like.

                Almost everything there made me kinda nauseous.

                1. re: roxlet

                  It's not a joke. It's a gift from heaven.

                2. Just like a car wreck.

                  The oreo was sort of amusing.

                  1. I sure hope people are sharing some of those dishes, I can't imagine how any one person can eat an 120 ounce steak. That's just being retarded.
