The Krispy Kreme Donut Hot Dog might look like a stomach ache waiting to happen, but it's also an adventurous option that many people would be interested in trying at least once in their life. After all, the invention of cronuts has spurred on a movement of unexpected hybrids, so it's only natural other companies would continue this experimental venture.

Created in collaboration with Wilmington Blue Rocks, a minor league baseball team in Wilmington, Delaware, the Krispy Kreme Donut Hot Dog boasts a donut 'bun' that is filled not only with a hot dog, but also raspberry jelly and bacon. To promote the new concoction, the team is holding a naming contest. Dan Carson of Bleacher Report says, "I suggest 'the Groanut,' because one of these bad boys coupled with two Bud heavies equals you on the floor, instantly hungover and wallowing noisily in that hellish no man’s land beneath the stadium seats."
