The Famous Luther Burger...Stop Motion Animation Style - A fun peek into Krispy Kreme Hamburger preparation!

Rumour has it that this burger was created by Luther Vandross. The legend is that he ran out of hamburger buns and reached for...a donut!

This is..."the best idea I have heard since I invented the hard boiled egg and peanut butter sandwich. I had two of these with a side order of a defibrillator. Looking forward to my next cholesterol and blood sugar check."

Krispy Kreme Burger -- Do You Think That Restaurants Should Be Allowed Make Temptations Like This One?

Do you think that restaurants should be allowed to create items like the Krispy Kreme Cheddar Bacon Cheeseburger of Delight despite the health implications?

Yes. If people want it, I think they should be able to make it.

      Ummmm, yes. And just what health implications are being referenced? These burgers are, hands down, amazing!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Why the hell should we dictate whether a restaurant can serve food in a tasty combination when all the food is perfectly legal?

    • Therob007 6 years ago

      It's something I'd try to never eat again. I've done that before, the Monster Thickburger from Hardess, for example. It was good but I know its very unhealthy. Have to try it at least once though. People have to chose from themselves if they want to eat it or not. That's the free market for you.

    • Therob007 6 years ago

      That's the beauty of the free market, new products bring in money. I'd eat it once and never have it again. I did the same with the Hardees Monster Thickburger (the one with over 1000 calories). I know it's bad for me, but having it once is not going to hurt me. I'd want to try it just for the curiosity factor.

      Well, we should be able to eat what we want in moderation, but maybe a Surgeon General's warning would suffice. :D

      Why not? It's up to the individual to know when they can splurge! I try to eat fresh natural ingredients as much as possible but sometimes ya just gotta go for it!

    • momto4 lm 7 years ago

      Yes, absolutely! People should be allowed to make their own decisions on what they want to eat.

    • Mickie Goad 7 years ago

      I should say "no", but sometimes one just has a "need" to give into a craving for something that is not-so-good-for-you!

    • anonymous 7 years ago


    • anonymous 8 years ago

      Of course. This isn't Nazi Germany; if you want to make an unhealthy treat for yourself or consenting customers, you should be able to do it. On a side note, I also think that people should be able to commit suicide and use whatever drugs they so desire. I guess I just love freedom.

    • The_Colorful_Squid 8 years ago

      YES. and it's our choice if we want to eat or buy them or not.

    • kab 8 years ago from Upstate, NY

      We are talking America right? Land of the FREE???

    • kathysart 8 years ago

      Absolutely! If someone wants to eat their way to poor health restaurant choices are not going to slow them down.

    • kathysart 8 years ago

      Absolutely! If people want to eat their way into bad health that is up to them. The only prerequisite is that society is not called upon to pay for their medical bills.

    • RuralRoute2 8 years ago

      You bet restaurants should have creative menu items!My favorite restaurant has a "Mr. Personality Special" for breakfast.2 eggs, 8 ounce hamburger steak, hashbrowns, whole wheat toast with strawberry jelly and chocolate milk.

    • Achim Thiemermann 8 years ago from Austin, Texas

      Man, this sounds good! I don't care about restaurants, I'll make this myself. That way I can use triple-cream Cambozola as the cheese and a dollop of sour cream on top! Then I'd dip the whole thing in batter and deep-fry it. Serve it with a cup of Creme Anglaise on the side...make that a small cup, though!

    • Haveagood1 8 years ago

      Why not? They sell monte cristo sandwiches. Just because I wouldn't eat it doesn't mean you can't!

    • KimGiancaterino 8 years ago

      Sure... people should be able to eat whatever they like. This is no worse than some of the garbage on our grocery store shelves.

    • Paula Atwell 8 years ago from Cleveland, OH

      If people want it, why not. They can eat vegetables for the rest of the day.

    No, I think the health implications are simply too big.

        Well, since this is a democracy they should be free to do whatever. But, on the other hand, I think all junk food should be outlawed, at least the premade kind. And hospitals should serve only healthy food in their cafeterias and to their patients. In a perfect world, that is.

      • anonymous 8 years ago

        NO! This should be illegal, even to make at home. People cannot be trusted to make the right choices; the government must step in to help them. Making this legal is like making marijuana legal -- people should not be allowed to make bad choices for themselves.

      "Hamburger America is a tour through America highlighting some of the author's favorite burgers and burger joints. But more than that, through the interviews with the myriad shop owners and burger slingers I sense the joy that comes from being a business owner in America. The freedom to choose a menu, the freedom to assemble ingredients, the freedom to set prices and hours. And because these Americans are free to pursue their dreams they prosper while providing a great product that makes many people very happy." ~~ Donald Willaims

          Definitely intriging. I'm not sure I'd make or buy one, but maybe just a taste. . I do love salty and sweet, but I'm thing of chocolate covered pretzels when I say that. :D 5 stars for starting up the controversy, and with such an unusual recipe. Lensrolled to Cheeseburger Swiss vs American. Thanks so much.

          It just does not sound that tasty to me but I am open for new things, so of course I would try it. Not grasshoppers though.. nope, not even between a Krispy Kreme Bun.
