This dog is really having its day.
The Canada National Exhibition in Toronto is known for its culinary creations, but we’re not sure that this combo should ever have been conceived of.
It's a regular old hot dog wedged in a chocolate éclair, with a nice dose of whipped cream on top. It's like dinner and dessert in one. But we're not sure we want to try this one.
Created by Maple Lodge Farms, this meat and sweet combo wasn't the only watch match at Canada’s largest fair, which has in the past featured a bacon burger sandwiched between two Krispy Kreme donuts, as well as deep fried butter. The folks at the Bacon Nation booth are offering a Nutella-bacon sandwich and a bacon sundae funnel cake. And if you are still craving a hot dog, you can get one the Bacon Nation way: covered in bacon and deep fried.
Is the éclair dog a mash up made in heaven or an unsavory union? You decide.
