Craz-E Burger: Americans Embrace 1,500 Calorie Doughnut Burger
"Consisting of a bacon cheeseburger with a buttered, grilled and glazed doughnut standing in for a bun ... Its 1,500 calories of sugar and saturated fat did not stop it from becoming a huge hit at a major fair in Massachusetts ... Visitors bought around 1,000 Craz-E burgers each day of the fair's 17-day run."17,000 of these consumed in 17 days, at one fair. That's one popular sandwich.
What impressed me, besides the outrageousness of it, was the promotion of it: "The perfect rejoinder to the healthy eating lobby." Do people make food choices out of some kind of rebellion?
My friend's take on this:
"It is appealing to the defiance of teenagers to authority. Unfortunately we live in a country where adolescence is nurtured by the media since adolescents are easy to manipulate. So 40 year olds never learn to grow up and become adults and take care of themselves."He has a point.
