NY State Fair unveils 1,500-calorie 'Donut Burger'

SYRACUSE, New York (AP), Jul 28 - Want fries with that... doughnut?
A food booth in Syracuse will unveil the ``Big Kahuna Donut Burger'' at this year's New York State Fair.
For between $5 and $6, the adventurous eater will get a quarter-pound burger in between slices of a grilled, glazed doughnut. Toss on some cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato and onion and you've got yourself a 1,500-calorie meal.
America's state fairs can be counted on to provide foods featuring offbeat ingredient combinations. Wisconsin has chocolate covered bacon on a stick, you can get fried beer in Texas, Massachusetts provides fried jelly beans and North Carolina has the ``Koolickle,'' pickles soaked in Kool-Aid.
New York's fair opens Aug. 25.
