Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Exists, Is Worse Than It Sounds

A Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe is something that we have to know exists, and since we have to know, we’re making sure you have to know, too. We can’t handle the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe alone.

Sweet/savory hybrids like the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe, or its not-so-ancient ancestor burger on a donut, are not a new thing — but it seems every peanut butter bacon shake or hot dog Twinkie we discover raises the gag inducing bar just a bit.

Okay, so maybe bacon chocolate is fun for five minutes — but a Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe just seems to remove all pretense of trying to be oddly intriguing or possibly good when you’re high and heads straight to “only on a dare or bet” territory.

The Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe joins Dunkin Donuts’ new egg sandwich on a donut as things we’re seeing this month that aim to adulterate donuts, breakfast, dinner, drive throughs, and fairs. A brainchild of a chef at the San Diego County Fair, the monster behind the horrid creation combined traditional sweetly savory sloppy joe meat with onions and a classic glazed Krispy Kreme for the nightmare foodstuff.

And if you want to blame someone for the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe, the party responsible is Chicken Charlie’s, of Del Mar, California. Going by feedback posted on Buzzfeed, the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe isn’t a standalone act either — for some reason closely held between the people eating them, Chicken Charlie’s and God, everyone seems to be deciding to eat their donut abomination alongside a bacon wrapped deep-fried pickle.


If you happen to be morbidly curious or lost your tastebuds in a freak accident and want some Instagram bragging rights, you have until July 4 to sample the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe before the state fair rolls up its awnings for good.

Would you ever eat a Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe, or is that taking the donut bun trend too far?
