HARRINGTON — You could try to dine lightly at the Delaware State Fair, sticking to lemonade, a small soft serve cone. Maybe sneak a few french fries from a buddy.
Or you could indulge and scarf down a doughnut-bunned cheeseburger with chili fries, then pop six fried Oreos for dessert.
John Vogel, of Ocean View, was willing to at least try the doughnut burger – a beef patty with cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato and two glazed Krispy Kremes where the buns ought to be.
“It’s interesting. It’s sweet,” Vogel said after one bite of the odd sandwich, which cost $8. “I’ll take another bite to check.”
His 9-year-old daughter, Katie, was far less enthralled, taking a nibble only after the bacon was extracted. Her verdict? “I wouldn’t have that again.”

That’s the state fair for you: a chance to eat food in combinations you won’t need to digest again for another 364 days. Dave Higman, owner-manager of Little Richard’s food truck, which served Vogel’s doughnut burger, said his biggest sellers are staples of any diner, like sausage sandwiches and cheesesteaks. But, he said, odder choices like fried turkey legs and doughnut burgers also are hits.
“We plan on running full steam every day unless it’s gonna rain,” Higman said of his food truck, which has countertops on two sides and can fit up to eight employees. There was just one hitch on this sweltering Friday afternoon: no air conditioning.
“It’s about 20 degrees warmer in here than it is outside,” Higman said. “My son-in-law’s up in Dover right now getting a part for it.”
