Let’s Talk About That Cronut Burger
Today, I read that a few people got sick at the CNE after eating a “Cronut Burger”. What’s that, you ask? Why, it’s a deep-fried doughnut-croissant hybrid stuffed with a beef patty, cheese and topped with maple bacon jam, of course. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Nope, to me it sounds absolutely heart-stoppingly disgusting.
So on Facebook I jokingly said, “Hahaha, people eat a “cronut burger” (a deep-fried doughnut-croissant hybrid stuffed with a beef patty, cheese and topped with maple bacon jam) at the CNE, get sick and it makes the news? That SHOULD make a person sick! How disgusting.”
Turns out, though most people agree that it’s a truly sickening thing to consume, others feel that the CNE (or any carnival) is all about this kind of cardiac-arrest-concoction. As a kid, I remember eating candy floss and hot dogs, which, sure, aren’t the healthiest, but when did we cross over into the land of deep fried Mars bars and other shocking food items? At what point does adventure become sheer gluttony? I say at this point.
I’m not saying I wouldn’t take a bite of these vile foods, but to order one and eat what is apparently 7500 calories? Not a freaking chance.
What’s your take? Am I being a stick in the mud for finding this kind of thing truly disgusting?
