If you thought deep-fried butter went too far, the Funnel Bacakonator will make you flip your lid. Following the unhealthy lead of American State Fairs, the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina started serving up this artery-clogging number to legions of racing fans. The Funnel Bacakonator takes your usual high-fat midway favorite, complete with strawberry syrup and chocolate sauce, and covers the deep-fried cake with a heaping helping of bacon bits.

Funnel cakes can be hard on the system at the best of times. If you've ever tried to ride a roller coaster after eating one of these sweet confections you'll completely understand. There's no doubt that the Funnel Bacakonator is delicious. It has the whole salty-sweet sugary fat combo, but in all seriousness, eating this ostentatious dessert should only be done once in a lifetime.

Whether or not the sight of this gleaming, fatty delight has you salivating is incidental. The point is the Funnel Bacakonator exists, and that's a marvel in and of itself. Stats for Artery-Clogging Confections Trending: Older & Chilly
