Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
MAC AND CHEESE BUN BURGER
America has always been a place where fast food has been merged to create new and interesting ideas and one of the ones that we are looking at today is one of the most recent adventures in the States – substituting the buns of burgers for a concoction or mac and cheese.
The average Mac and cheese bun burger consists of hamburger patty, cheddar cheese, 3 pieces of bacon, mayo, deep fried mac n cheese buns and a scoop of mac and cheese just for good luck. As you can see very indulgent. The bun has over 1,500 calories. The item can be found at Des Moines and is called The Walking Ched and can be bought for $8.79 – $12.79.
To make sure that the mac and cheese keeps the form of a bun they all go through the same process of being kept in the fridge and then being breaded and deep fried. It is something that has enough calories to really create a heart attack on a plate.
