Probably not as lethal as the “Shaniac” …

… but looking sinfully delicious nonetheless:

Cheerwine Kreme-Filled Krispy Kreme doughnuts, available only in the Carolinas, only during July. I am so hitting KK on the way to work Thursday.

KFC is a bunch of weenies

There has been a phenomenal amount of media coverage — so much that I, a determined non-foodie, have been unable to avoid it — of KFC’s “Double Down,” a bacon-and-cheese sandwich that uses two fried pieces of chicken for bread slices. It’s good for 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and 1,380 mg of sodium.

Paula Deen has gone this one better with the “Lady’s Brunch Burger,” which is — I am not making this up — a half-pound hamburger topped with bacon and a fried egg, using Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts for bread. Oh, baby.

Now that’s good eatin’, particularly if you’re in the market for a last meal. The only way you could improve on it is to roll the whole thing in homemade batter made with lard and then deep-fry that sucker in beef tallow.

(Nutritional info for this not available at the site, but two KK glazed alone are worth 400 calories, 24 grams of fat and 190 mg of sodium.)
