The CNE, as always, has produced a wondrous assortment of caloric delights. For your information, here is a pie chart illustrating where the 5600 calories I ate came from.
And, here are the official scores for the items you’re wondering most about. The pictures are in order from left to right.
Donut hamburger: A+ If you’re going to do it, then do it right and get it with the egg and bacon. Tastes good, worth the calories for a once a year crazy eating fest.
Deep fried coke: C My guess is they add a little bit of flour to the coke syrup to thicken it up a little. Then, they drizzle it into the hot oil. It doesn’t taste good or bad. It just is. Worth the money? No. Worth saying you ate it? Maybe.
Deep fried Joe Louis: B+ Nice flavour. It’s like eating warm cake out of the oven. It’s tasty but it’s not crazy wow unusual. Still yum.
Deep fried brownie: B+ Like the Joe Louis, also good but nothing OMG crazy. Nice warm cake.
And lastly, here is a picture of me with my new boyfriend. This little guy was not interested in the free food. He just wanted a little bit of love and he weasled his head onto my arm for as long as I would pet him.

In addition to sharing my opinions about social media research and ethics in research, it is also extremely important to me that I share some personal information with you. Yes, I am going to eat this Krispy Kreme donut hamburger at the CNE this year. Yes, it has a burger and bacon and egg and cheese. Yes, they swap the bun for a donut. Yes, it is 1500 calories. I will live to tell the tale. You will wish you were eating one too.
I plan to have a go at this too – Deep Fried Coke!
