When people think about baseball games it’s impossible for them to not also think about hot dogs. Who doesn’t enjoy an all-beef frank while watching their team hit for the fences? And while people differ in what condiments to put on their dogs, generally the toppings don’t change much from ballpark to ballpark. There’s mustard, ketchup, relish, maybe some onions and tomatoes. But certainly never donuts.
Well, that’s no longer the case. The Wilmington Blue Rocks, a minor league affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, announced their latest concession stand offering called, “The Krispy Kreme Donut Dog.” As the name suggests, it’s a hot dog with a glazed donut bun. If that’s not enough to get your mouth watering, it’s also topped with bacon. It’s like they did a survey on foods people like and just mashed them into one item.
The Krispy Kreme Donut Dog also comes with raspberry jelly topping, which will certainly satisfy both ketchup and mustard fans. Any other condiment would be absolutely disgusting.
The Blue Rocks have not released nutritional information about the Donut Dog, probably because the FDA isn’t sure if they want to classify this as “food” or “narcotic.” How would anyone be able to eat a normal Oscar Mayer wiener after eating this epic deliciousness?
The Krispy Kreme Donut Dog is not the finalized name of the concession. The Blue Rocks are accepting suggestions for fans on what to name the hot dog. Whoever’s submission is chosen will receive four tickets and throw First Pitch at Opening Day and received $50 in stadium bucks, which we assume will allow you to buy approximately one of these hot dogs.
Our suggestions: The Krisp-asa, the Footlong John or the Clearly You Do Not Care About Your Health Dog.
