Deep-Fried Innovator "Chicken Charlie" Has Now Created A Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Doughnut Sandwich

Because deep fried Kool-Aid wasn't enough, a southern California fry fanatic is now making a Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe doughnut sandwich. That's right, a glazed doughnut with Sloppy Joe meat and cheese in the middle. Gotta love America.

You can catch the sandwich at Charlie "Chicken" Boghosian's stand at the San Diego County Fair, which going on now. Apparently Boghosian is the go-to guy in SoCal for all things fair and fried.

While the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Doughnut Sandwich has only been around since he announced it on Facebook this past Friday, he's had a Krispy Kreme Sandwich on his menu for a while. It fits in nicely with items including the Totally Fried Klondike Bar, Totally Fried Oreos and Totally Fried Bacon Wrapped Pickle.

Phoenicians not willing to road trip out west for a bite of doughnut-sandwich-goodness might be interested in the recently introduced Dunkin' Donuts' Doughnut Bacon Sandwich, which the company made available at all stores on Friday. Shockingly, the sandwich will cost you just 360 calories -- that's 30 fewer than the Dunkin' Doughnuts turkey sausage sandwich and a few hundred less than the 500-plus calories the Seattle Times estimates are in the Chicken Charlie's 'wich.

The San Diego Country Fair, which takes places at the Del Mar Fairgrounds 20 miles north of downtown San Diego, runs through July 4. For more information about the fair visit the San Diego Country Fair website.
