You might've thought the crazy donut party ended last Friday when National Donut Day (you ate all these, right?) concluded, but Charlie "Don't Call Me Eric, It's Not Even Spelled Correctly" Boghosian of Chicken Charlie's had other ideas. The chef showed up at the San Diego County Fair this weekend and introduced a game-changer: a Sloppy Joe sandwich with a hole-less Krispy Kreme donut as the bun.
We had an intrepid reporter on the scene to detail this fair-food sorcery. The verdict? It's a smaller Sloppy than you'd think! Testers also reported a major flavor imbalance between the filling and the donut, which couldn't overcome the strong Sloppy Joe taste, with our woman reporting that "they ended up picking it apart and eating the pieces separately", making the Joe even sloppier than previously imaginable.
It's unconfirmed whether this donut Sloppy Joe is a fair-only deal or will be hitting actual menus, so if you want to play it safe, get to the San Diego County Fair before it closes on July 4th. Between this and the Dunkin' Donuts glazed donut breakfast sandwich, the donut sammy gauntlet has officially been thrown. Your move, Tim Hortons. (Ha! Just kidding. Isn't Canada hilarious?)
