Apparently donuts aren't delicious – and fatty – enough.
With National Donut Day still fresh on our minds (June 7 – make a note now for your 2014 calendar), we have to ask: since when did the humble donut need any further embellishment?
First we heard about the cronut: a deep-fried, cream-filled croissant-donut hybrid that New-Yorkers can't get enough of (literally: the pastry's popularity has forced a 2 cronut-per-customer limit, numerous cronut imposters and tales of cronut-scalping). It's a hybrid of a croissant and a donut. Actually, this looks pretty delicious.
Then, Dunkin' Donuts unveiled its Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich — pepper fried-eggs and bacon nestled between a split glazed donut — reminding us that the health food craze hasn't totally ruined good old-fashioned fattening fast food. Hello obesity epidemic!
But the newest entrant in the crazy-doughnut might just be the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe sandwich. Yes, that's a sloppy joe on a donut. A California chef, Charlie Boghosian of Chicken Charlie's, reportedly debuted the dish (if you can call it that) at the recent San Diego County Fair.
