Food Drunk, a New Orleans-based food truck specializing in "chef-inspired, alcohol-influenced cuisine" has come up with a new, boundary-pushing burger just in time for Mardi Gras: King Cake burgers. The sweet-meets-savory creation features a brioche bun smeared with white icing and bedecked with purple, green, and gold sprinkles, in homage to the official cake of Mardi Gras.

Between the buns, there's a Black Angus brisket patty and a slice of sharp cheddar cheese.

The King Cake burgers will be sticking around until Mardi Gras. To track down the truck, follow Food Drunk on Twitter.
