Why is a Bacon-Topped Hot Dog in a Krispy Kreme Donut Bun (with jam) a good idea? Because ‘Merica, that’s why.

Cardiologists all over the world are reeling as a minor league baseball team launches this signature, artery-clogging stadium snack.

Following last weeks ”Churro Hot Dog” by the Arizona Diamondbacks, this edible heart attack came into fruition with assistance from the creative geniuses at Krispy Kreme and the team at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington, Delaware. 

Containing what we can only assume what would be close to a billion calories, this culinary delight also joins the ranks of the “CARBuretor Crunch” sandwich, available at Phoenix International Raceway. Blurring the lines of sweet and savoury, it is a deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a Cap’n Crunch and bacon crust, fresh sliced banana and a delicious caramel drizzle.

Name suggestions for the snack are currently being taken, with the winner to be drawn on the 25th of March.
