The Krispy Kreme Donut Bacon Cheese Burger is another attention-grabbing food booth. It is essentially one glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut, lettuce, tomato, onion, hamburger patty, cheese, bacon, and finally another Krispy Kreme doughnut. This multi-meal snack packs in a near 1,500 calories.
“We try to bring new items to the fair every year. Last year it was the donut burger, this year it’s the buffalo chicken donut sandwich. We also have the fried Kool-Aide and the fried Derby Pie,” said Krispy Kreme booth employee Don Kenna.
Kenna also said that he feels the Donut Burger appeals to fair-goers the most because it is a good product with great advertising.
High prices were an issue at the fair for some. With a $10 entrance fee for adults and an eight dollar parking fee, some people are hesitant to purchase anything else.
“I went to get a lemonade shake up and it was six dollars. It wasn’t worth it,” said junior Matthew Langdon.
The fair will be open until Sunday, Aug. 28. Traditional fair rides, agricultural exhibits, dog shows, concerts, games, and much more will be featured.
